Encouragement of Light

“How Did the rose Ever open its heart And give to this world All its Beauty? It felt the encouragement of light Against its Being. Otherwise, We all remain Too Frightened” ― Hafez

“How
Did the rose
Ever open its heart
And give to this world
All its
Beauty?
It felt the encouragement of light
Against its Being.
Otherwise,
We all remain
Too
Frightened”
― Hafez

“I wish I could show you,
When you are lonely or in darkness,
The Astonishing Light
Of your own Being!”― Hafez

Let the light in.
Open your heart, release the light within.
Out and in.
Ebb and flow.
Darkness lingers, but light resides unhindered, running deep.
A current, a force, a liberator.
Astonishing light and beauty.
A rose in bloom.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” – Marianne Williamson

See It and Be It

“In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.” – Albert Schweitzer

“When this ends, we’ll smile sweetly, finally seeing. In testing times, we became the best of things.” – Amanda Gorman

In the weariness of an ongoing pandemic, burnout at work, political unrest and incivility, do not succumb to the lies of despair. Endure in hope, bathe in light. The human spirit is stronger than circumstances, smallness and fear. Amidst our winters, light, beauty, joy are alive and well awaiting our attention and tending.

Never, ever, ever, ever lose hope. Rekindle the light within and spark it in others. A roaring fierce fire. See the light. Be the light.

“There is always light. If only we’re brave enough to see it. If only we’re brave enough to be it.” – Amanda Gorman
