Today, I felt moved to write about "light". I have always found light to be the most hopeful of concepts.
A flashlight helps you find your way in darkness. People navigate by the light of stars. Stars themselves are just reflections of light. People sing about "sunshine" and about the warmth of light. Wisdom can "shed light on a situation."
Light is powerful.
I see light as reflecting love. I see light as the essence of what is right in the world.
When I sometimes feel myself feeling discouraged about the world, and terrorism, and all that is wrong in the world, I remember something that a wise woman once said to me:
'"Just think, darkness can never swallow up light. In a dark room, the light will always shine."
And so, to me, light must always win.
What a hopeful thought!
