Discernment

“As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.” – C.G. Jung

The velocity of the last few weeks has been mind-bending, rather mind-numbing. On and off planes, in and out of meetings. Go, go, go. And I know I am not alone. Walking through airports, you see the angst and robot-like looks as people rush to the next thing, going through the motions, tired and worn.

In the midst of the speed and demands that we create in our life, we often convince ourselves that we are stuck and don’t have a choice. But we do have the power to make better decisions. And when we don’t feel like “casting light,” we must seek light to get filled back up again, to be whole.

Slow down for a few moments to gain a new and fresh perspective, allowing discernment to expose the blessings and joy in your life right now that long to be noticed, to be felt, to be shared. Move through the chaos without becoming chaos. Kindle the light, stoke the fire and in the middle of the darkness, seek light and cast it right back out again.

  1. Yes. It would seem that it is easily possible to forget about being present when we are overloaded during the holidays. But unless we put on our brakes and contemplate our crazy mind we will suffer…..
