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
