This festival of Lights, God blessed us with the gifts of Spiritual Fire Light; and a Glistening Reflective Flowing Water…these Spiritual Elements are both of One Light...In fact they are one light…One Power! This Powerful Light Illumines dark places; it cleanses, purifies, and clears. It also Kindles Hope and Fosters a sense of Possibilities. This Light however also demands total truth, utter honesty, renewed perspective, and absolute authenticity. It has been said… and it is so, that Truth is a double edged sword. Don’t ask for Truth unless you are sure, ready, and prepared to handle it… and have it handle you! Don’t think for a moment that Knowing, understanding, and living in Truth and in Spirit won’t change you and your life. Truth demands change…it demands sacrifice, and submission. This obedience to Spirit…this Submission, brings both peace and freedom in the end! However, it also brings a process of upheaval and testing in its wake; A time of purification and re-ordering!
It was said once in a movie I watched as a child, that “It has to hurt, if it’s to heal”; I find this more than a little sad sometimes, but it can also bring Joy as well; a type of rebirth that makes the world new again. The sadness, is a prelude to happiness if one so chooses to let it be…a precursor if you will… of bringing us to that place of relevance, beauty, and sacredness. This is the place of being Real…Real with ourselves and with each other…and getting ourselves Right with Spirit and with Life! So I just want to take this opportunity to publicly say….
