I have put the law of the darkness behind me, while I have adopted the Law of the Light. I repent in the presence of the God Majesty of Law, I have thrown out of my eyes, this sleep of death which is full of error. — Gospel of Mar Mani 52:1-2
As disciples of Mar Mani, our souls “put the Law of the Darkness behind” us and “adopt the Law of the Light.” To do this we “repent in the presence of the God Majesty of Law.” This is none other than the Righteous Judge Himself.
The soul says it has “thrown out of my eyes, this sleep of death which is full of error.” This means a person has become awakened to the Truth and the Light and have come in union with the Mind of Light. We are no longer serving the darkness or our own interests, but are now serving God and the Light.
The soul says that when evil became worse, it lifted up its eye to the Land of Light. (see vs 3) The soul that is awakened and in union with the Mind of Light knows the true Source of Light and receives comfort from It.
