This time of year, I contemplate the darkness—not only of the winter world, but of the darkness that too easily ensnares our souls.
Loneliness, hopelessness, anger, envy, hate—these emotions are all part of the human condition, yet they don’t have to rule our existence. That’s why I propose, as the new year begins, that we focus on the light that shines in each of our lives.
The light may be small. It may be in danger of going out. But, I truly believe with a little attention, any light can become brighter. Perhaps you have a very bright light. Why not use it to kindle the soul of someone who may have lost their flame?
Each of us has a spark within us. Each of us can add brightness to the world.
May this be the year, where we focus on the light instead of the darkness. May this be the year, where we discover the sparkle of Magic that’s hidden within all of our souls.
