Happy Holidays

“A Light within Us”

We enter the season of winter.  The daylight hours are shorter. The dark hours and night time are longer.  Is it no wonder then that the holidays we celebrate in December involve light in some way or another.  

We might consider that long ago, Man discovered how to control fire in a way that helped him.  The light of Fire brought light to long nights in winter.  The light of fire gave warmth in cold weather.  The fire gave us a way to prepare food for consumption over a period of time.  

Light has also inspired us in many ways.  

Light is a symbol of Hope.
Light is a symbol of remembrance.
Light is a way to see through darkness and is often reflected upon during a dark time.

We can do our own inner work with the idea of light or a flame within us.  We can open our mind to ask questions as:
"What do we want?"
"How can we be in the world?"

We can explore our inner fire and flame so that we may shine.
And intertestingly enough, when we shine we let others know they can shine too.  

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond imagination. It is our light more than our darkness which scares us. We ask ourselves – who are we to be brilliant, beautiful, talented, and fabulous. But honestly, who are you to not be so?
You are a child of God, small games do not work in this world. For those around us to feel peace, it is not example to make ourselves small. We were born to express the glory of god that lives in us. It is not in some of us, it is in all of us. While we allow our light to shine, we unconsciously give permission for others to do the same. When we liberate ourselves from our own fears, simply our presence may liberate others.'”  - Marianne Williamson in Return to Love: Reflections on a Course in Miracles

Let there be light  inside and out.
