Ecstatic Friday, 4 December 2015

Happy Ecstatic Friday. Sunday marks the first night of Hanukkah, the festival of lights. Given the darkness of the news cycle and the ever present hate, fear and belligerence surrounding us, we all need to be reminded that there is Light inside of us and Light surrounding us. As Meister Eckhart said, "Truly, it is in the darkness that one finds the light, so when we are in sorrow, then this light is nearest." So, when current events shake my faith in the Divineness of this world, I plan to sing Fannie Lou Hamer's favorite song, "This Little Light of Mine" until my heart remembers that my Light is more powerful than all the darkness out there. Join me and then we'll be twice as bright. Namaste.
