Living in the Light

Some people come into this world, and make all the difference...

Some people come into your life, and leave it forever changed...

Some people come into your life - and as a dear friend and songwriter once sang - leave footprints in your heart and your soul...

Some people come into your life - and despite immense tragedy and suffering - manage to truly live in the light...

Some people come into your life, simply to point the way...

Some people come into your life and make their mark - in very quiet and unassuming ways...

The gifted poet, Mary Oliver asked in her poem about summer:

"Tell me, what is it that you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?"

I still ask myself that question, while some never get the chance to do so...

Why do we come into this world?

"We come into this exquisite world
to experience ever more deeply
our divine courage, freedom and light."
~ Hafiz

Some people come into the world to shine light - and when they leave this world - go back into that Light...

Yesterday, on the Summer Solstice, on a day of beginnings and endings, one such soul left this world. But I believe she was greeted with great joy on the Other Side of the Veil...

Christine Weeks, beloved student, friend, and soul - rest now, in the arms of angels - and bask in God's Light and Love! Do not forget us, for I know that I will never forget you!
