    Light

    We all need Light in our lives. Light’s many dimensions
    Illuminate our environment as well as our soul.
    We require Light to observe, discover, analyze, and elucidate
    As well as Light to feel, comprehend,
    Reason out, accept, or refuse.
    We need the Light of Reason and the Light of Love
    To fill our hearts and minds.
    We need the Divine Light of understanding and compassion;
    The Light of gratitude for all the blessings we’ve received.
    Without light we can be so helpless!
    We necessitate the Light of vision, to find our way,
    To tread carefully, avoiding danger while
    Looking where we step, and we are guided by
    Moonlight to attenuate the darkness of the night.
    We require the Light of perseverance to interpret the mystery
    Of the Universe: geographical, astrological, and historical.
    We necessitate the Light of wisdom, to learn from the lessons
    Of the past, to rediscover the future, to assess right and wrong,
    To be able to make decisions. To benefit
    From this vital inner Light, we must never abandon the
    Pursuit of knowledge! And last but not least, the Light
    Of Freedom, representing Human dignity, is as essential
    As life itself! Always Light within and Light without!
