We are mirrors that may reflect the Light, if we choose to.
The love for others is what this Light demands of me and you.
The act of compassion, forgiveness, and service; it’s all about connection.
How much love we put into what we do is what determines our reflection.
How much flavor we give to life depends on how much we give and care.
Or we may remain opaque and dull, and indulge in our own affairs.
But the Light is always there, waiting for us to meet many needs.
By clothing the naked, feeding the hungry, helping the “least of these.”
We could fight for justice, equality, and friendships.
We may create peace and maintain relationships.
But we must remain meek, so that our image can be clear.
Embracing suffering, but living in joy, avoiding all fear.
We must clean ourselves by being poor, like gold purified by fire.
We are mirrors that reflect the Light, if we so desire.
