For Your Consideration: Thoughts on Light

Found this "out there" today. It fits for me ... so I offer it for your consideration:

The Creator said, "let there be Light." That one sentence explains the power of creation. But it also explains our essence. God said let there be Light; but we, because we have to earn what we have, then said, "let there be darkness too," so that we can choose, so that we can become the creator of our own lives, the conductor of our own symphonies.

And when faced with Light or darkness, we all too often choose our anger, our fears, our failings.

Way back then, we said we need the darkness so we can achieve something. Somehow we've forgotten that the reason for being in the darkness is to choose Light.

If you don't go back to the source, that Light, you remain in the very darkness you chose to bear in this lifetime. Nothing is ever going to fill that darkness, nothing except for Light.

So this week's assignment is twofold: First, realize we asked for this darkness, the specific darkness we wrestle with. Remember it. When it seems to be engulfing us, know that even the darkness is part of the plan. Then, choose the Light. It's so simple. Many of you are probably thinking right now, it's too simple. But remember, the first part is to recognize that whatever darkness I'm steeped in right now, I chose it.

And if we can see the choice, perhaps even take responsibility for that choice, we can choose again. And this time, we must choose Light.
