When character's in The Inheritance accept Truth's gift, the light of Truth burns within their chest. They become lightbearers. In our realm, those of us who have the light of Christ are to be like a city set on a hill. That means we can be seen from a distance.
I thought about the importance of letting that light shine forward for all to see. It lights our way and is also noticeable to others. However, if we have poor spiritual posture, the light shines down; it may even be dim. It still lights our path if we look for the illumination, but it is no longer evident to others. God calls us to let our light shine in a way that others will see it and give him glory.
In the same way, let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven (Matthew 5:16 HCSB).
