I read a wonderful blog with a very interesting point of view. It was beautifully written. The main topic was about light…it was based on the Martin Luther King quote:
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
As I read this blog and the comments that followed, the prevailing theme was interesting. It seemed that the majority of the people believed that light and love came from somewhere else. It was something you had to let in. Something you had to get.
I have a very different point of view…
(That’s not totally unusual. I find I often have a different point of view than most.)
I perceive that each of us IS light and love. It’s our innate nature. It’s who we are at our core. Only, for whatever reason, we hide that.
We hide it from our famiy.
We hide it from friends.
From co-worker or business associates.
We hide it from ourselves!
We are very cute….and not so much bright, sometimes.
Why on Earth we choose that is beyond me. And we do. We hide our light and love.
And then we’re even cuter!
Because we act as if it’s something we have to get from somewhere else. *rotfl*
It’s us. We hide it…so well that we don’t even know it’s there. And then we pretend like we have to get it elsewhere.
Stop denying who you are. Stop hiding your light and love from everyone, including you. Stop pretending like you’re going to find it somewhere else.
It’s been right here all along. Right where you left it. Just waiting for you to remember it was there. It’s like it’s saying (in the cutest little kid voice ever), “Hello. Can you hear me? I’m right here. Here I am. Remember? You put me right here.” It’s waving it’s little arm going, “Pick me. Pick me.”
And still we search.
We are so cute!
What else is possible?!
