Meditation:  Let your Light Shine

Dawn.  Mornings are full of promise.  It’s sad to see a life so depressed, anxious, or worried that the day begins with stress.  Each day is full of promise.  It’s useless to deny that at times our lives are challenged by a lack of adequate essentials like food, clothing, or shelter.  Even in these situations, each day holds promise and is pregnant with possibilities.  The ultimate promise is death.  Death is a doorway to an even greater reality. Once we see that our lives are full of new life, death and renewal we’ll experience the beauty that lies in the most challenging situations.  In the midst of it all, we can let our inner Light shine if we’re attentive to embracing inner stillness. Be Light. 

Enjoy the journey.

Through experience,  
the sage becomes aware that all things change,  
and that the one who seems to lead,  
might also, in another situation, follow.  
So the sage does nothing; she neither leads nor follows.  
That which she does is neither big nor small;  
without intent, it is neither difficult,  
nor done with ease.  
The take of the sage is completed, she then lets go of it;  
seeking no credit, she cannot be discredited.  
Thus, his teaching lasts for ever,  
and she is held in high esteem.

In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
