Light the Candle

We are not here to curse the darkness, but to light the candle that can guide us thru that darkness to a safe and sane future. John F. Kennedy

A Sacred Gift

“You are on a soulful path that asks you to step into the greatest version of yourself. It is a sacred gift to shine your brightest light, not just in your moments of glory, but each day.”  —  Debbie Ford

Shine!

 

Let There be Light

We live in a time of great darkness.  We may feel driven to fight against the darkness.   If this is your path I would like to give a word of caution that is can be difficult to fight without becoming what we are fighting.

This is the time I believe we are being called to remember.  To remember who we are and where we came from.  To remember our light and our spiritual power.

We are light and what this world so desperately needs right now is for all of us to shine.  We change the world by the way that we live.  We don’t have to try to judge, teach or change anyone.  When others see the light shining through us they will come to us.  They will see that we are different and will want to know more.

The month of December is a difficult time for many people.  The time when we speak of peace on earth goodwill to all can  also be a time of anger, feeling that we are the only ones with the truth, greed, materialism and other displays of human frailty.  This is the time to stay true to your calling and not get caught up in petty squabbles over celebrations, what is being celebrated or appropriate holiday greetings.

This is the time we must focus on the light that we are and walk in it.  So this holiday season go out there and SHINE!

What does shining your light look like in your life?  Please take time to ponder this question.  Think about it, journal, create art, answer the question in the comments below, whatever you feel led to do.

Light Precedes Every Transition

A Life Well LIved: Doing or Being?

Copyright 2016 by R.A. Robbins

The Espirational theme for this month is A LIfe Well Lived.  Please join me this month as we explore what it means to live well.

When many people think of a life well lived they think of a destination, where they will have acquired possessions, fame, accomplishments, power and money.  I like to think of it more in terms of the journey and how we travel through this life.

What is most important to you, what you do or who you are?  We live in a world where we are all about doing, accomplishing and acquiring.  Life becomes so much about jobs, money, degrees, awards and possessions that we can forget who we are.  When we forget who we are it is easy to get lost.

This world needs you.  Your job needs you.  Your family needs you.  You were created in all your unique splendor for a purpose only you can fulfill.

When we focus on being the expression of the Divine that we are the doing will fall into place.  As we walk in light, love, peace and joy we will discover what is ours to do in this world.  We will begin to live a life of service to others.

Next time you find yourself overwhelmed by a frenzy of doing ask yourself these three things:

  1.  Is this necessary?
  2.  Does this serve my higher good and that of the world?
  3.  Is this mine to do?

A life well lived isn’t about achieving or earning.  A life well lived is being who you are and then doing what is yours to do to serve others.

We live in perilous times.  We all need to show up.  Not to run around doing a bunch of senseless things till we are exhausted.  We all need to show up as the light that we are, and radiate that light of God out into the world.

Allow the Light to Shine Out

 “Everybody has a part of her body that she doesn’t like, but I’ve stopped complaining about mine because I don’t want to critique nature’s handiwork … My job is simply to allow the light to shine out of the masterpiece.” — Alfre Woodard, Actress,  65.

There’s a Light
