When you possess light within you, you see it externally – Anais Yin


Light from the sun is one of nature’s BIG miracles. It provides the warmth that plants and animals need to survive, the illumination necessary for vision to work, and serves as the engine of photosynthesis which is fundamental to regulating our atmospheric composition of CO2 and oxygen among other things. Yet we continually take it for granted. After all, “the sun will come out tomorrow…”. Occasionally we find ourselves reminded if it’s significance, such as when we are standing exposed on a high mountain pass beneath dark rain clouds in the midst of a relentless bone chilling wind, with an aching back, groveling stomach, and blistered feet. In an instant the sun breaks through and the moment we see it we realize that we are smiling.


If light is in your heart, you will find your way home – Rumi
