There are two words that are very meaningful and not commonly used:  numinous and luminous.  Numinous refers to the presence of the Divine, such as the ” Spark of the Divine ” that I often use to describe the part of our soul that is eternal.  The word luminous is in reference to the light ( not especially visible ) that one receives from realizing the “Numinous” within.  In other words, Numinosity evokes luminosity.  This luminosity is often seen or felt in one that knows what lies within.  It is very humbling for the ego to submit to this understanding, but necessary for spiritual advancement.  So, if you want to shine, then think about the Divine.  Love one another with kindness and tolerance.
