Excellent discussion of the Light. Main idea I take from it is that it is not the "Inner" Light, but is the "Light Within." It is not "all about me," not something "I" have earned, or achieved, or even have as my birthright, but is something given to me by Grace, though Bien didn't go that far. Grace comes to me from without and I must be open to its reception. This is probably what the NFF meant to convey when it wrote that Rufus Jones never used the term "Inner Light."
