THE LIVING SPIRIT
This month's theme is "The Living Spirit." As we wrap up the year-long theme of "Creating a World that Works for All," some may wonder where we are on that journey. After the election (as I'm writing this) many are feeling like there's a setback in this idea.
But if we focus on the Living Spirit and recognize It is our Source, then we recognize where we are as just part of the continual unfolding of this vision. This month, in which the light seems to be going away, there are so many festivals celebrating the light. Each is a reminder of both the returning of the light and of the light within us. Paul, in his letter to the Ephesians, reminds that we "walk by faith and not by sight." Sight sees the gathering darkness; faith sees the ever-present light.
You and I are the light of the world. It wasn't just Jesus or Buddha, or the sacred candle in the temple of Jerusalem or even the sun itself. As all spiritual teachers have reminded us, WE are the Light and that Light lives always within us. We may cover it over, or let it grow dim from old patterns and conditions, but it is always there, awaiting our remembrance and recognition. As with the tradition of gift giving during this season, the Light within always gives of Itself. It is infinite and inexhaustible. When we give, let us give from the Light within, not just externally, even though some of the giving may be external.
As we prepare to step into the new year of 2017, let us take the light of this vision - A World that Works for All - forward with us. Let this vision be a guiding light for us. Let us not walk in the darkness, but in the light of Truth. Our fears fall away when we recognize that we walk with a Power and Presence greater than the world, when we let go of belief in outer circumstances as having power over us, and step into and from our real Power.
Have a beautiful, powerful, Light-filled holiday season. Take time to celebrate and take time to go within and refresh and renew as the Earth is doing all around us.
Much Love and Light,
Rev. David RobinsonBack to Top
