The source of light is fire. The Sun, a campfire, even the light of a light bulb is some form of controlled combustion. Fire within us gives our body warmth, as well as experienced through passion, excitement, and love.
The flame of compassion and awareness is also within us. It is this that lights the world through each of us living inner light. Yet, as this Nicolas Roerich painting shows, we must have firm footing in our slanted, easily tipped existence in order to bring forward the light. With stability from within, we can offer the light of compassion and awareness as the Light of World, born from the heart of each person. The season of Light has many tales to tell. This is one of them.
