I opened my emails this morning and was greeted by the photograph above. It needs no words, but it so beautifully dovetailed with the thought that I’d had very early today as I sat outside, that I felt I must say something. The thought that came to me was, “You never know how your life helps others. This is by design. If you knew, you’d become self-conscious and you might try harder to be a ‘good person’. Don’t worry about being good or spiritual or any of that. Today, shine the light that is inside you and notice how your every need is taken care of. And say thank you.”
Be the love that you are. Give that love away freely. Allow the love (that is also you) to return to you from others. Notice the good. Share the good. Tell the good stories of hope and miracles and second (third, forth, tenth) chances. Be the light of the world.
“Ring the bells that still can ring. Forget your perfect offering. There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.” Leonard Cohen
