The world can oftentimes seem dark, lit only by flashes of hatred and harm. Ego, jealousy, greed, fear – many things can smother the light and bound the heart tight. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed at such times and take comfort under a blanket of secrets and lies, hiding away from truth and kindness and love.
But we need not live that way.
Each and every one of us has the power to live honestly; to share, to love and shed light into the darkest corners.
Today is a good day to be reminded of this, as horror fills our news feeds and hatred spills out in to our streets and in to our neighbours’ streets, just as it did yesterday and will do tomorrow. It is always a good time, it is always the right time, to go shed some light.
