We are all unique individuals with our own special note to play in the symphony of souls and yet we are all warmed under the same sun, and we all come from the same ultimate source of light In fact we are made from light and reflected within us is the entirety of creation.
All of creation is reflected in you and everything else
“The universe and the light of the stars come through me”. Rumi
“Although its light is wide and great, the Moon is reflected in a puddle one inch wide. The whole Moon and the entire sky are reflected in one dew drop on the grass.” Dogen
Maybe the most famous quotation about light is from Genesis “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, and it was good. And God divided the light from the darkness.”
All creation myths across the globe say something similar
We live on a planet that and in a reality that is divided between light and dark. It is a planet of dualities and opposites.
It’s that way on purpose. We have free will to choose between these opposites.
The ego covers our light
“If you wish for light, be ready to receive light, but nourish your ego and be deprived of light.” Hindu saying
The experiences we create through choices we make are how we learn and grow.
Trials and tribulations increase light
“The wound is the place where the Light enters you” Rumi
Right now we are living in a time like no other. The vibration on our planet is increasing rapidly. As it does it becomes increasingly important that each of us chooses to stand in the light and to shine our light.
