Answer: If you are ready for it, then it is very pleasant, but if you are not, then it could be very painful. The light can beat and burn like a beam or it can heal.
Question: What does readiness to receive the light mean?
Answer: Readiness to receive the light is only the willingness to unite.
According to how close we are to each other, to that same extent we become ready to receive the light and equalize ourselves to it. If we, under the given conditions, make no effort to come closer, the light still affects us, but it feels bad to us.
All the suffering in life comes from the abundance of light that pushes us forward when we are unprepared for it.
We must understand that only closeness between us will position us correctly toward the light, and then we will be able to progress in a positive manner.
