Let the light shines..

Look at this picture of a lighthouse, leading the way of the boats in the open sea. Look how good it stands in the darkness with its light shining bright. The lighthouse is tall so everyone can see it from the distance and the way it shines, it feels like giving the surrounding environment a light for a brighter day. This can also happens in our life. We can also stand tall and shine our light and be someone else's brighter light. I am sure that it will always feel good when we're able to brighten up someone's day that's darker than our day. Always keep in mind that positive mood and attitudes can make our heart shine and for sure people will see us glowing because of our inner light=)
"At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us."-- Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965) German theologian, musician, philosopher, and physician

Some days the road is lit and the way is easy, other days the path is dark and the going rough. Fear no darkness, be the lighthouse. The storm will come and there’ll be no shelter, stand tall and let your light shine.
Be the lighthouse.It is said that which doesn’t destroy you can only make you stronger, free your mind and choose to be the lighthouse. One thought can change the entire universe. Peace or war? Love or hate? Who’s right and who’s wrong? Who owns this or that bit of dirt? Be the lighthouse and everything will sort itself out just fine. Many will become lost, be the lighthouse and help them find their way.Wherever you’re going, you’re getting there. Your path is already before your feet, be the lighthouse, carry the water and bring your light to the places where there are none.Tune in to your inner vibration and become millions of voices that carry out across all time and space, be that beacon of hope for those who have none.
Be the lighthouse and help them find their way home, be the light to guide their way on. They’re out there, right now, looking for you. As it gets darker, shine brighter, be the lighthouse, become the eternal light… Be the lighthouse.

"...Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." --Marianne Williamson

I am the lighthouse!!! Actually I really think that's very true, that if our fire goes out, it can easily be sparked by another, as long as we're willing to take that spark right? Some people just love to be in misery and they douse out everyone's light around them...I'm talking in analogies again!

That's a really good analogy Rain. Why be in a misery if you can stand out and be a lighthouse, not just for your own good but to shine the light to others as well..
