MONTHLY MESSAGE

THE LIGHT AT THE HEART OF EVERYTHING

NOVEMBER-DECEMBER 2004  

In this world every experience contains the seed of its opposite. Out of light, darkness comes, as when day turns into night. From the dark, light arises. At this time of year, as we move towards the dark, the longest night, the winter solstice, remember that light and dark exist in constant relationship to each other. Remember that from what we can call the great dark, the void, the source, arises the light of Awareness that shines forth everywhere and at all times. It can be obscured, even buried, but it cannot be extinguished. It is the light at the heart of everything. 

As you feel the dark coming, or perhaps you may sometimes be weighted down by world events, circumstances in your life, sorrow in your heart, look around. Imagine that in every person, in every thing, in every experience, there is a seed of light shining forth, waiting only for the proper conditions, the appropriate nourishment, to grow brighter, stronger, and bigger. Feel that light within yourself. Know that at all times you are sustained and nourished by the light at the heart of everything. You cannot lose it or be separated from it.  It guides and protects you and is a source of comfort. It shines forth at the most unlikely moments, just when you need it the most.   

Om mani padme hum. This mantra is the song of the light at the heart of everything. 

May all beings be happy, peaceful, and free of suffering.
