This Week’s Quotation:
You are the light of the world. This is merely a statement of truth about yourself. It refers to you as you were created by God. This is a beginning step in accepting your real function on earth. You will want to think about this idea as often as possible today. It is the perfect answer to all illusions.~ A Course in Miracles, Lesson 61
War, disease, and unspeakable tragedies make it difficult to keep the faith that all is well in our world. It’s challenging to navigate the chaos, pain, and suffering without fellow travelers that support us in remembering that we are the light of the world!
After all, what would sailors do without a lighthouse to guide them through precarious situations? What better way to honor the inherent dignity bestowed upon each of us than to be a light-bearing navigational aid for others lost in fear and forgetting? All that is necessary is to radiate our light.
Yes, it’s challenging to trust in Divine Intelligence and avoid fatalistic thinking that disempowers. Yet, like any dark night of the soul, before there is peace and healing, that which is in the dark must come to the light. The energy of pandemics and war has been on our planet for as long as we have been alive, encouraging fear and reinforcing the idea we are separate. We know better.
So, let us turn up our voltage, remain heart-open, and radiate our light—like lighthouses glowing all over the continent, illuminating what is veiled by the illusion of separation. We can honor our spiritual purpose and be bastions of grace, compassion, forgiveness, love, and light wherever we find ourselves.
May the Light remain strong in you!
About Open Windows
We, the authors of this blog, dedicate it to the transparent exploration of the world’s sacred scripture and enlightened spiritual thought. We believe that the original inspiration of all faiths comes from a common source, named and revered in a myriad of ways. With that understanding, the innumerable symbols, beliefs, and practices of faith cease to divide. They become open windows to a common reality that inspires and unifies us. We find deeper insight and nourishment in our own faith and from the expression of faith from others.
We hope these weekly quotations and meditations speak to your heart and soul.
