Heavy Light Quotes

The month continues! I have been reveling in my alone times with God, as well as times of community. Most recently, I’ve been experiencing some crazy stuff that makes me just super duper excited and full of joy. (Please remember that I did warn you about how amazing it can be to give some attention and intention to your spiritual life!) (Also, ugh, it’s midnight and I’m exhausted and I can’t come up with more interesting words than “super duper excited.” Forgive me, blogosphere!) contemplating the concept of each of us having a light inside of us. Let’s leave it at that for now. 🙂

In contemplating and studying, I’ve read so many beautiful words about light. Some of them have resonated deeply with me and I thought I would share them with you.

People are like stained-glass windows.  They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.

~Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you.

~Maori Proverb

Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.

~Anthony J. D’Angelo

His high endeavors are an inward light

That makes the path before him always bright.

~William Wordsworth

Into my heart’s night

Along a narrow way
 I groped; and lo! the light,

An infinite land of day.

~Rumi

When my heart is heavy, the sun helps make it light.

~Terri Guillemets

He that has light within his own clear breast

May sit i’ the centre, and enjoy bright day:

But he that hides a dark soul and foul thoughts

Benighted walks under the mid-day sun;

Himself his own dungeon.

~John Milton

The true yogi is one who is like a lion with himself, always striving to eradicate that which shadows his inner light, and like a lamb with others, always striving to see their inner light, no matter how dense may be the clouds that hide it. He is the king of the jungle of his world. He hides from no one and seeks escape from nothing. (88)”

~ Prem Prakash
