Across our continent there is devastation, washing ashore remnants of our homes and our lives. We are confronted with storms of both nature and man, whose mind and heart seeks to find peace among ruin and light among darkness. But we cannot change the winds nor the rain, we cannot change the tumultous rage that lays wreckage to our communities. We can, however, give our hearts to a new thought – a new idea.
This new idea begins with taking a closer look within ourselves. It beckons us to peer deep inside us to find something more. It speaks of love and heart – renewed within a higher concept of trust. Where once we begged for our hope to a new privilege – that of being ONE mankind, we now seem to squander that privilege in a game wrought with selfish agendas and less honorable outcomes.
But there is a new idea. And this new idea is one with Light. It can change our outcome from despairing mediocre existence to brightly extraordinary manifestation. It is held in the true, real power of Light. And it is ours – to give, to receive, to expand, and to share. We are beings of Light, all of us, and we are just beginning to see this reality. As beings of Light, we are capable of new purpose and brighter lives. We are embodied holy sages, wrapped in the light given us by He who is our Divine, and He wants for us to feel our light. He wills that we become the light-made-manifest that we inherently are. And we are.
In order for us to do this, we must turn… from our former way to a new way. And that is how we change. Truly change. We must be love. We must be truth, in a higher form. We must become Light, as seen in our once-known heavenly home. And we must act. There is no progress without first action. And there will be no peace without Light. In order to bring this Light forward, we must be all the brightest aspects of love we know how to be. Even if we only understand the most basic concept of kindness or decency, we must be that. Even if we only see the smallest, most tiny speck of heart within us, we must use that. Even if we merely believe that love is possible but have never experienced it ourselves, we must hold – tightly – to that idea and allow it to flourish within us as a beacon of Light. It will.
Our Light spans brightly across millennia of existence, even into realms we do not yet remember while in this mortal state. But we can shine, nonetheless, brightly. We can give our heart to those whose needs exceed our own. And we can see, even in the darkest corner of devastation, a glimmer of that Light. It dispels the dark, and it brings our heart into a new place of power. This place can be the start to a new world. It can shatter our former selfishness. It can make a magnitude of Love where once only hate existed. And it can lead us into a new Society where every man serves his brother, every woman sees beauty in her sister, and where every child knows they are loved and cherished. Where all the mistakes of the past are washed away like the remnants of our broken homes cleansed by yesterday’s storm.
In here, we will find the Light. In here, we will dwell.
