Living In The Light

Sometimes we walk in light. It shines through us. All we touch is warmed and brightened. Sometimes, we are the sun.

Sometimes we walk with the light. Truth speaks to us, and we speak with truth. And sometimes, we are the truth that slowly creeps in and brightens the world.

Sometimes we walk into the light, and we are frightened by what we see. We turn and walk away. Sometimes, we can stand right there in the daylight and all is muffled and cloudy. Sometimes, we are the clouds that need to settle. Sometimes, all we need is time to see the light.

Sometimes we are blinded by the light. Sometimes, the answers are so obvious. We are as overwhelmed as if we were feeling our way through the night. Everything is clear except our insight. Sometimes, we are the stars that light the way for others even when we can’t find our own way.

Sometimes, we need to delve into the dark of our souls to find ourselves. While it is in groping through the darkness that we shed light on ourselves, it is ultimately in the light that we find truth and our way in the world. Sometimes, we are the lonely moon that pierces through the dark of soul to find our way home.

  1. I love the last line, “Sometimes we are the lonely moon that pierces through the dark of soul to find our way home.”

    Reminds me of my journey from dark to light. Beautiful pictures! Love this series.

    Happy New Year!

  3. OMG Suzi…this post was freaking faaaaaaabulous!

    And so perfect for New Years day!

    Many years ago I read a book called ‘Living in the Light’ and it shared much of the same things that you shared here. It was truly an eye-opener for me.

    LOVE these photos! Especially the fourth one down – gorgeous!

    “Sometimes, we need to delve into the dark of our souls to find ourselves. While it is in groping through the darkness that we shed light on ourselves…”

    As St. John of the Cross also shared…

    “The Dark Night of the Soul” – it is through walking through darkness, we find the light.

    Thank you for sharing this reminder, dear lady!

    Happy New Year to you and your family!

    Cheers!

  4. What a beautiful reminder to live in light. to remember it’s there always, even when we can’t immediately see it. Photos and words, awesome! And I remember that book as well.

  5. Very beautiful and inspirational … thank you.
    “…it is ultimately in the light that we find truth and our way in the world” … I could not agree more. When I find myself in a dark place, the only way out is to find the light.

  6. Beautiful photos! My favorite is the first. Such magnificent beauty, the light so brilliantly shining on the pathway. Your caption for it is beautiful, too. Thank you for sharing these beautiful photos and your thoughts with each one. Blessings to you…

  7. Not only do you have beautiful photos here (especially the 2nd one), but your post is heartfelt and thoughtful. Made me smile and think.

  8. Such great insight. I believe this is one of your best reflections yet. I’ve been mulling around a post about light for the past few weeks, but it hasn’t really materialized yet. This may be the inspiration I need to finish it!
