And Yet the Spark Remains
"...[B]e not afraid." --Luke 1:30, Mace New Testament
As someone who is "spiritual, but not religious," I don't usually quote the Bible, but this is what the guides want me to tell you today: Be. Not. Afraid.
There seems to be so much fear in our world today, but is it really more than we have lived with every day of our lives? Illness, disease and death have always been a part of our world. Death is all around us, especially at this time of the year. The trees have shed their leaves and only the evergreens remain alive to decorate our world. The many colors of life - red, yellow, pink, purple! - have been replaced by only a few: blue, green, white, gray. That sameness can feel like death, like the flatness that sometimes accompanies grief. And yet we know that underneath it all, the colors of life still exist. They wait for the day when yellow fills the sky and shines down on all below, lightening and brightening our world once again.
Some of us may feel flat and dull this time of year. Dead, without energy or inspiration. And yet, those same colors, that same brightness, lives on inside of us. When you feel down, low energy, like life is not worth living, pause for a moment and turn your attention inside. Take a deep breath. Look for the spark of life that lives inside of you. The spark of light that causes life, that brightens and inspires. It is always there. You need only look.I leave you today with this quote from "A Course in Miracles:"
The power of one mind can shine into another, because all the lamps of God were lit by the same spark. It is everywhere and it is eternal. In many only the spark remains, for the Great Rays are obscured. Yet God has kept the spark alive so that the Rays can never be completely forgotten. If you but see the little spark you will learn of the greater light, for the rays are there unseen. Perceiving the spark will heal, but knowing the light will create. Yet in the returning the little light must be acknowledged first, for the separation was a descent from magnitude to littleness. But the spark is still as pure as the Great Light, because it is the remaining call of creation. Put all your faith in it, and God Himself will answer you. (T-10.IV.7&8)
If you are not feeling the spark today, put all your faith in it anyway. Know that it is there, inside of yourself, inside of others. Trust that it is there and soon it will reveal itself.
Sending love and light to you today and always.
