There is a light within you…

tree with sunlight coming through

"There is a light within you that cannot die; whose presence is so holy that the world is sanctified because of you. All things that live bring gifts to you, and offer them in gratitude and gladness at your feet. The scent of flowers is their gift to you. The waves bow down before you, and the trees extend their arms to shield you from the heat, and lay their leaves before you on the ground that you may walk in softness, while the wind sinks to a whisper round your holy head.

The light in you is what the universe longs to behold.  All living things are still before you, for they recognize Who walks with you. The light you carry is their own. And thus they see in you their holiness saluting you as savior and as God."    A Course in Miracles

I've been reading the Workbook part of A Course in Miracles, not every day, but a few times/week and it seems that everytime I do open it up and read, I find something very prophetic and sacred in the writing that applies directly to something that happened to me that day.

I couldn't figure out how to caption the image of the sunlight shining through the frost and tree in the middle of the paddock this morning.  An image I noticed on my drive but didn't stop right away, I registered it in my mind and kept driving.

Then I realized how special the lighting was and turned around and came back for the picture.

It made me ask myself a few questions:

How many times a day do I fail to recognize how special my own light is?

How often do I fail to recognize that same light in others?

What would my life look like if I looked for that light in others even when it appears to be very dim...?

And so I ask you, what would your life look like if you acknowledged how special your own light is?


We'd love to hear your comments.
