Finding our center, our core, our essence, our source of inner light that which is visible through our eyes, isn’t always an easy task. It often requires a great deal of determined reflection and rumination on that which is and that which is not.

Life often, as we all know and experience, is much less than fair. We’ve all expressed that very thought at some point in our lives, I’m certain. Our guarantees are limited, to only the moment we are now in and our expectations are often greater than we can possibly achieve. Or are they …

Yet with that knowledge we continue on, hoping, dreaming and wishing for the things we do not have or we in fact need, to become better people. The crux, are we capable, are we able, are we so built as to be able to be that “one” we all seek to be? The answer lies within our center, our core, our essence and our inner light.

I firmly believe G-d is inside us all, yes, every one of us. I know we’ve been gifted free will, to set our own path. How we handle those two rather lofty philosophical constructs is up to each one of us, to a great degree and to those around us to a lesser degree.

Our moral compass guides or it should. Sometimes temptation leads us astray. How far depends upon our inner strength and our innate values. Because, eventually we will need to return to our center, our core, our essence, our inner light. Without them we would cease to exist as sentient beings and fail, miserably. History has taught us that fact well.

We, as people of conscience, cannot allow ourselves to fail … and each hard thump comes with only two options. The first succumb and the second to overcome. Again, all about who we are and what is in our center, our core, our essence and makes up our inner light.

Will we inspire another today? Will we be a source of hope? Perhaps, yes and perhaps no, not today, but with resolve in our own hearts and minds we may tomorrow or the next day after. It is who we are, seekers. Our life journey is one of evolution. We must in order to thrive, and if we thrive we can flourish, and if we flourish we will be that better person, with a beautiful center, a beautiful core, a beautiful essence and a beautiful and strong inner light.

The more difficult things are the more important this all becomes. We are more than just ourselves and indeed part of the collective spirit that brings warm to this world. Please let’s never forget and let’s all strive to be the best we can be, always … <3
