There is an exquisite light within each of us. Reconnect within. Turn up the light and shine bright. Makin everything right. All you gotta do is keep it tight.
AWAKEN: SHINING BRIGHT IN EVERY LIGHT. IT'S DARK SOME DAYS BUT STAY THE WAY. IT'S OUR DAY. IT'S, TODAYYYYYYY.
The inner work that clears the way for love to flow from you to all you meet is the way you forgive yourself and those you have unfinished business. We reconnect to our inner light, more deeply, as we forgive, ourselves for what we did not know, others what we could not act on, and that forgiveness ends the dreams, illusions (love less thinking) of any conflict that blocks our loving.
Our eternal light burns brightly within. As we remove all blocks that we have placed in front of our heart. As we remove the anchors to the past, we free up the present. Our forgiveness heals the past. forgiving but not forgetting the past frees us. In this way, all conflict must be resolved. It cannot be evaded, set aside, denied, disguised, seen somewhere else, called by another name, or hidden by deceit of any kind, if it would be escaped. It must be seen exactly as it is, where it is thought to be, in the reality which has been given it, and with the purpose that the mind accorded it. For only then are its defenses lifted, and the truth can shine upon it as it disappears. Invite forgiveness into your heart and all your light to shine.
Open your heart fully. Let the essence of your self radiate today and blossom with every word you speak. Let the shimmering ripple of nature expand through your being. Let the light glow filling your heart with full flowing presence. Let that beautiful expression of love reflect on the wind. Expanding outward amplifying and attune with all the sounds of the world.

"Around me the trees stir in their leaves
And call out, "Stay awhile."
The light flows from their branches.
And they call again, "It's simple," they say,
"and you too have come
into the world to do this, to go easy, to be filled with light, and to shine.

From Youtube: Mary Oliver was one of our greatest and most beloved poets. She is often quoted by people across ages and backgrounds — and it’s fitting, since she described poetry as a sacred community ritual. “When you write a poem, you write it for anybody and everybody,” she said. Mary died on January 17, 2019, at the age of 83. She was a prolific and decorated poet whose honors included the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. In this 2015 conversation — one of the rare interviews she granted during her lifetime — she discussed the wisdom of the world, the salvation of poetry, and the life behind her writing. (Original Air Date: February 5, 2015)
About the Guest: Mary Oliver published over 25 books of poetry and prose, including “Dream Work,” “A Thousand Mornings,” and “A Poetry Handbook.” She won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1984 for her book “American Primitive.” Her final work, “Devotions,” is a curated collection of poetry from her more than 50-year career.
