Feeling Lost or Alone?

I'm finding pleasure this week going through closets, drawers, filing cabinets, and so on—making physical and energetic space. As strange as it may sound, making space has always been deeply satisfying when I'm in the right mood.

While going through my office folders, I found a beautiful quote by Kent Nerburn from Make Me an Instrument of Your Peace.  I thought I'd share it with you this month:

We are not saints; we are not heroes. Our lives are lived in the quiet corners of the ordinary. We build tiny hearth fires, sometimes barely strong enough to give off warmth. But to the person lost in the darkness, our tiny flame may be the road to safety, the path to salvation.

It is not given to us to know who is lost in the darkness that surrounds us or even if our light is seen. We can only know that against even the smallest of lights, darkness cannot stand. A sailor lost at sea can be guided home by a single candle. A person lost in a wood can be led to safety by a flickering flame. It is not an issue of quality or intensity or purity. It is simply an issue of the presence of light.

Whether you are the light or in need of illumination, may you experience the comfort of knowing you are never alone.

Take Action Challenge

Let your attitude and your actions be the presence of light for someone in need this week.
