There is a quiet light that shines in every heart. It draws no attention to itself, though it is always secretly there. It is what illuminates our minds to see beauty, our desire to seek possibility, and our hearts to love life. Without this subtle quickening our days would be empty and wearisome, and no horizon would ever awaken our longing. Our passion for life is quietly sustained from somewhere in us that is welded to the energy and excitement of life. This shy inner light is what enables us to recognize and receive our very presence here as a blessing.
And so as we welcome the returning light of the Sun, may we welcome and celebrate the Light we hold within. There is such power in this Light. Indeed it is the only power that can dispel the darkness. Within and without.
