The Light of Awareness
Each artist is a facet
of God's unfolding infinite vision,
refracting the light of awareness
in his or her own particular way.
- Alex Grey
Each of us has a unique take
on what it means to be
alive and living on this earth.
Each and every one of us
refracts the light of awareness
in our own particular way,
a unique expression shaped
by culture, intelligence, curiosity,
our degree of comfort in our skin,
how we relate to the world creatively.
We contribute by the words we add
to the human discourse;
the images we capture or create and share
with others to inspire, challenge, educate;
the tracks of kindness we leave as we negotiate
our path through life.
We refract the light of awareness
by cultivating and demonstrating compassion,
by growing in wisdom,
by learning to continue questioning
even when we think we know the answers.
We add our light to the world
by seeing miracles all around us
and letting possibility shine through,
a torch held aloft for those still
wandering in the wilderness of despair.
There are only two ways to live your life.
One is as if nothing is a miracle.
The other is as though everything is a miracle.
- Albert Einstein
