Led by Professor Alastair.
Good morning, and blessings this day in the Light. We give thanks today for the love in our lives, the life in our lungs, the ways in which the Light provides for us. We are each travellers in this world, each with our maps, paths, and provisions. We must do the best we can with what we have, and follow our heart’s lodestar when the world is dark.
It is difficult to find stability and quietness. All around us, the world roars in its tempestuous chaos. Song is lost in the grind of war, kind words dissolve into frustration and anger, and the generous hand clenches into a fist. This is the toll of Darkness, this harshening and closing of the world. It takes far more courage to remain open and soft in the face of such a cacophony.
But it is love we must trust, and love we must walk in. Love is what will gentle the wilds, and calm hatred’s crimson tides. Love is what makes us able to forgive one another for the darkness in ourselves, and what inspires us to extend our hands to others. Let us love fearlessly, and boldly. Let us place the flower of kindness on the teeth of rage, and look into the eyes of others so that we might find better reflections of ourselves. Let us sow love wherever we walk, at every opportunity, so that the world might blossom on our wake.
Amen and namaste.
