Great Light, we give thanks this morning for the sunlight and the wind in the trees. We give thanks for the small ways you remind us of your presence– a glimpse of beauty along the highway, the right song in the air at the right time, or the kind words of a stranger when we need them most. You are in all things, and in you all things can be made Good. We each carry your Light with us; give us the courage to share it with those who need it.
It is a dangerous world we walk in, full of darkness and trials, but we must remember we walk with the Light, and in the Light all things are possible. We must take courage in the presence of the Light, and trust our understanding. The Soul knows what is right, and in the presence of the Light, the Soul goes quiet, and knows what it is made of. In the Light, we can be brave in our peace, bold in our peacemaking, and beautiful, whatever we are.
Do not be ashamed of what you are, for you are as the Light has made you. No matter where you are from, what you have suffered, or what you have done, if you reach for the Light, the Light reaches for you. You are enough, and you have things to contribute to this world that only you can provide. You are needed, though you may not know why, and the world under your feet wants you, the story of which we are all part needs you. If you find yourself in doubt of that, reach out. Help the old lady cross the street, feed the hungry dog, or just water the plant by your door— you’ll see how needed you are. The world always needs Goodness; choose to serve Good, and you make yourself indispensable to the world, no matter how small your contribution may seem.
Amen and Namaste.
