“People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.” ~ Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
It’s easy to be happy and bright when all things are going well and there are no stresses. But when the inevitable clouds of life roll over in various challenges of life, we find that our happiness was based on external factors.
The irony is that we can attend to the challenges of life from a broader more objective perspective when we know that our feeling of self-worth and competence comes from within.How do we nurture this inner light? By knowing that it is there and then by fanning its flame until we glow from the inside out. This is the light of love. Love from creation itself placed in our heart to be nurtured with self-love. Then we carry our own sunny self around and can attend to even sadness with a grace that is not easily ruffled and that brings light to others in times of their own darkness. Want to light up your own life? Flip the heart light switch on!
