Let Your Light Shine


Jesus said, "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven." Matthew 5:16

Jesus did not say "not to shine your light until humans can see." Humans in darkness are ALL blind, it is only when you cast your individual light that all humans will eventually "see" and "hear" the genius of [the Divine] that is using you to give a unique gift to all humanity.

What is your part to play?

You're part is to not give up before your time.

One of your great purposes in this life is to keep on creating and keep on
doing the great works of [the Divine] no matter what appearances tell you

When I came upon these words today, I felt compelled to share them ... along with some of the personal reflections they generated.

Some of you may know that I was given a challenge in December to create an online class revolving around creativity and creative expression. The title I came up with was Journey to the Center of Your heART. The basic premise was to facilitate … aid … guide … and support people in exploring their creativity.  And the way I see Creativity it's that it equals Spirituality which equals Divinity which equals Light.
While there were a few people who expressed interest on Facebook, no one called in at the appointed time but one longtime friend … and that was only because I asked him, so that I wouldn’t sit there totally alone.

This experience happened only yesterday and to me seemed like a perfect example of what the quote was expressing.

The class was a means by which I thought I could “Shine My Light.” I’m disappointed that no one signed up or showed up even for FREE, but my “Part is to not give up before [my] time.”

My job is to “... keep on creating and keep on doing the great works of [the Divine] no matter what appearances tell you.”

So, here I sit … still yearning to “Shine My Light” but not certain if the class idea is the way to go … and I just need to put it out again … or if I need to “Shine” in a different way?

Thanks for the read ... Any ideas?
