“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” 
~~Martin Luther King Jr.A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches~~

“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.” 
~~Plato~~

“There is a crack in everything.
That’s how the light gets in.” 
~~Leonard CohenSelected Poems, 1956-1968~~

“How far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a weary world.” 
~~William ShakespeareThe Merchant of Venice~~

In a futile attempt to erase our past, we deprive the community of our healing gift. If we conceal our wounds out of fear and shame, our inner darkness can neither be illuminated nor become a light for others.” 
~~Brennan ManningAbba’s Child: The Cry of the Heart for Intimate Belonging~~

“How far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a weary world.” 
~~William ShakespeareThe Merchant of Venice~~

Love and light go together …. in my mind. The light of love brings an awesome shinning world to us.

We ALL are ONE!!

You come to us
from another world

From beyond the stars
and void of space.
Transcendent, Pure,
Of unimaginable beauty,
Bringing with you
the essence of love

You transform all
who are touched by you.
Mundane concerns,
troubles, and sorrows
dissolve in your presence,
Bringing joy
to ruler and ruled
To peasant and king

You bewilder us
with your grace.
All evils
transform into
goodness.

You are the master alchemist.

You light the fire of love
in earth and sky
in heart and soul
of every being.

Through your love
existence and nonexistence merge.
All opposites unite.
All that is profane
becomes sacred again.
