“Create what sets your heart on fire, and it will illuminate the path ahead.” ~Unknown
Light is what allows us to understand the world we live in. The detection of light is a powerful tool for probing the universe. It is through the study of light that we can understand the composition stars light years away or the living cells in us. It is no accident that humans can see and feel light. Our language reflects our fascination with light. Isn’t it said in scripture somewhere that after groping in the dark, we see the light and understanding dawns?
To me, the light is a living thing. It embraces us on the outside with visible light and warmth. On the inside light gives us knowledge. God is the source of all light. He placed the sun and stars in the universe. He gave man the knowledge to create light. He gave humans fire and later taught us how to harness electricity. I know scientists can explain to me that light is a form of radiation. Yeah, yeah, I know….and God made the radiation. We can trace all light to Him. So keep your scientific explanations to yourself please. I want to believe in magic for a minute longer.
Divine light, divine radiance or divine refulgence, is an aspect of the divine presence, specifically the ability of God, angels, or human beings to express themselves through spiritual means, rather than through physical capacities.
When humans use light to create what is most important to them, to their souls’ amazing things happen. We get Da Vinci’s inventions, Michael Angelo’s art, and Eisenstein’s math. Our world changes when one person embraces the light in their life and uses it for making magic happen. It matters not what form the magic takes. When humans use that spark of light to create what they are passionate about, what burns in their soul, that is the ultimate unique creation of good.
I challenge you to create what sets your heart on fire. Create your light. Let it guide your life. Make a difference in this world of shadows.
