a universal fact of physics:
darkness can not exist...
in the presence of light.
should light be covered there is only darkness. once light is uncovered, darkness is immediately negated - for as long as there is light. and as light grows darkness retreats. there is sometimes shadow - as in the case of the sun and night, but depending upon the trajectory of light and the tilt of our mother planet, light returns every day, as has been since the beginning. even night has the moon and the stars, and therefore its brand of light. mother earth is trying as hard as she can to show us the way.
we are beings of light. if we choose to live in darkness or to allow our individual or collective spirit to be immersed in dark ways, dark thoughts and dark deeds, our light becomes smaller and smaller. we allow ourselves to become swallowed perhaps without even realizing this is what is happening. what there is to know within your being is there is - always - an ember. it's name is forgiveness.
should we choose to search in ourselves for light, for truth and for peace, we will find light, truth and peace. our choice to search for destruction, control and avarice has led us right down the rosy path to the dark within us. it has led us to know our fellow beings in terms of their evil and ourselves in terms of our loss.
it is ours - it is within us - it is our purpose, our mission and our responsibility to uncover the light ... in ourselves. it is, further, required that we keep vigilant and faithful within the power of light : it is the only cure for our maligned way of being with each other.
this is why we are here. as we search for answers, prostrate ourselves and beseech the creator for our own best, it is only important to find light in your very own self - this day, next day and forward from there!
we have absolutely nothing to lose in bringing light into the world ...
one moment at a time,
one smile at a time,
one breath at a time,
one forgiveness at a time.
i am light!
so are you!
