EXCERPTS:

 

 

Light

 

We all need Light in our lives. Light’s many dimensions

Illuminate our environment as well as our soul.

We require Light to observe, discover, analyze, and elucidate,

As well as Light to feel, comprehend, reason out, accept or refuse.

We need the Light of Reason and the Light of Love

To fill our hearts and minds.

We need the Divine Light of understanding and compassion;

The Light of gratitude for all the blessings we’ve received.

Without light we can be so helpless!

We necessitate the Light of vision, to find our way,

To tread carefully, avoiding danger and looking where we step, and

Moonlight to attenuate the darkness of the night.

We require the Light of perseverance to interpret the mystery

Of the Universe: geographical, astrological, scientific, and historic.

We necessitate the Light of wisdom, to learn from the lessons

Of the past, to rediscover the future, to assess right and wrong,

To be able to make decisions. To benefit

From this vital inner Light, we must never abandon the

Pursuit of knowledge! And last but not least, the Light

Of Freedom, representing Human dignity, is as essential

As life itself! Always Light within and Light without!
