22-345 Illuminate

Today’s Mandala

“As the sun illuminates
the moon and the stars,
let us illuminate one another.”

— ProjectHappiness.org

“Just as one candle
lights another
and can light
thousands of other candles,
so one heart illuminates
another heart
and can illuminate
thousands of other hearts.”

— Leo Tolstoy

“You are the instrument
of your own illumination.”

— Vivian Gornick

Today’s MotD encourages us to illuminate the world with our Inner Light. Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary defines illuminate as: “to supply or brighten with light, to make luminous or shining, to enlighten spiritually or intellectually, to make clear, to bring to the fore.” Our challenge becomes recognizing our Inner Light and knowing what lights us up, what brings us joy. Whatever that is, illuminate others with that Light, thus inspiring others to shine their Inner Light. That’s a lot of Light!

For those of us needing some guidance on how to do that, Kate Holcombe of YogaJournal.com offers a short heart-based meditation in her article: How to Spark your Inner Light + Share it with Others. And life coach Jennifer M. Blaire shares her Inner Light guidance from her blog post: “Let Your Inner Light Shine

“You have an inner light within you that is craving to be shared by those around you, by the world at large – but mostly by you. When you share your unique light, bit by bit, you light up the lives of those around you. And, one by one, you inspire them to light up too. It’s a chain reaction. And before long, the whole world lights up. Your light is contagious.”
