Happy New Year, 2014!
May this be a year to be grateful for the blessings that already light up your life.
The Christmas tree is wilting, branches closer to the floor every day. But I still light the lights every evening, hoping it will last another day. This is my favorite part of the winter days – to have the Christmas tree, lights sparkling – light up my life!
Our communities need us to BE LIGHT! Make that your resolution for the New Year. Every day, go and BE LIGHT! Shine the light of your presence, your true presence, into your community.
The mind mirror illumines all ingenuously.
Its penetrating, limitless rays reach
everywhere in the universe.
Without exception everything is reflected
in this mirror
The whole universe is a gem of light
beyond the terms of in and out. – Buddhist text
