carry

In the last two weeks I have experienced tremendous proof of the light we each carry. Whether you consider it happenstance, fate or serendipity I have gotten to meet mere strangers at a soulful level. I’ve received their emails, read their stories, felt their greatest desires through simple words. They’ve trusted me with their vulnerability and I’ve never been so humbled and honored. I’ve watched their faces light up with hope when I tell them about carrying their prayers to Bali. I’ve simply shared an idea yet their hearts feel me asking more deeply to believe and it is literally, instantaneous magic. They just know….

I want to share something I wrote some time ago on my original blog begun 3.5 years ago. God am I blessed to see how life has unfolded in “divine timing” to give birth to this journey, to take these people with me.

“I have a light it’s also yours
I carry it to long off shores
I beckon you to hurry home
To find you safe and not alone
I have a light I know you see
I feel it when you look at me
It burns inside and seldom dims
You’ll find me glowing from within

I have a light it’s also yours
No counting faults or setting scores
I offer it without a thought
It warms me calmly when I’m fraught
I carry it through every day
I use it as I find my way
She sees it too and so does he
They need a light as do we

I have a light it’s also yours
I use it when I find closed doors
I offer it with open heart
If you’re here or far apart
I have a light inside of me
I let you in and hope you see
I share it though it wavers some
It won’t go out until I’m done

I have a light it’s also yours
I took mine from those before
They whisper not to be afraid
To give my light to brighten shade
To use it where it may be dark
It’s there it may ignite a spark

I practice it and focus in
To light each day as it begins
You smile and I know for sure
I have light it’s also yours”

This experience sits so perfectly in my soul. It is what I am meant to do…and so fitting of my favorite quote:

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
-e.e. cummings
