Q: Shedding light on the "in" thing

I *loved* this comment from Amanda in response to the "There is no 'in'" posting, wanted to share it:

Two things.... I think some of the things to consider about reflection are that you cannot have a reflection without an original, and you cannot have a reflection with no connection to the original. There is no separation between reflection and original, they are inextricably linked, they coexist.

And I find it helpful to think of rays of light as being a metaphor for Spirit's emanations. If you have a room that is lit up with sunlight, where is the sunlight? Is it IN the room? If you close the curtains, do you still have a room full of sunlight? The sunlight is a manifestation of the sun and this sense if is not IN the room, although it is expressed in the room.

I think this helps to explain how Spirit and its manifestations are in and of Spirit, inherent in Spirit and not "in" anything else.

Don't know if this helps.
