Being Light

Uphold the Light that your inner light
may illumine fear-filled hearts…
Light comes with each new dawn.
yield to the Light within;
become a chalice of light
for the world!
Nan Merrill

 

A “holon” is something that is simultaneously a whole by itself and yet a part of larger whole.
A drop of water in the air, or a steam or the ocean, is a holon.
We are all holons

 

How is one to live a moral and compassionate existence when one finds darkness not only in one’s culture but within oneself?
There are simply no answers to some of the great pressing questions.
You continue to live them out, making your life a worthy expression of leaning into the light.

~Barry Lopez, Arctic Dreams

 

We are a storied species, humans.
From the rich aural tradition prior to written language,
to pictographs on rock walls, to literature ancient and modern,
stories have given us meaning and purpose.
Joelle Chase
