What is this Light I see?

What is this light I see? It is warm, gentle and yet powerfully alive. At times I am engulfed in it and at other times; it’s a gentle flame settled in my heart. I’ve felt it shining in the morning, through the fluttering curtains on the window. I’ve seen it in the twinkling eyes of the child laughing blissfully in his mother’s lap and in the sunlight playing hide and seek through the forest trees. More often than not I’ve felt it keeping a beat with the rhythm of my heart beating. And in this light, it is as if my very skin is glowing faintly. What is this light?

Even when I am not smiling sometimes the light within is playing a smile on my lips. It’s everywhere around me and at the same time it is a distant memory radiating through the wreckage of my thoughts. In the sunlight gleaming through the rain filled clouds; it has caught my attention; driven this need in me to go deeper; the longing to know a long lost friend.

I’ve wandered and looked for it everywhere. Unknowingly I’ve travelled to far off places on this earth trying to catch a glimpse of this light. The mighty mountains; the untouched clear blue river waters flowing; the natives living in remote parts of the world, all of this unveiling that light for me. When I actually manage to see it, it bathes the whole world in this soft light, revealing the true hues of colour of the trees, the sky, the people enacting their roles in this drama of life. Just a gentle touch, spreading pure beauty and bliss everywhere and then it comes back home, pulsating ever so gently within me.  

“In your Light, I learn how to Love. In your Beauty, how to make Poems. You Dance inside my chest where no-one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this Art.”

    Very gently but accurately expressed. We all experience but choose to overlook these feelings in our chaotic busy lives. I think we must make a little effort to rejoice the wonderful surroundings.

    Yes, I completely agree. All what is needed. …..A little different perspectives. …..A little different outlook.
