Day 23; the light comes in holding space for differences.
Their respective lights doing what they were created to do: The night holds rich darkness and rest and quiet. And, the day takes the hustle and noise and heat away with it.
Both are able to hold space together in this moment. The delicate beginning of the moon and the blazing sun – their lights are not comparable, they are not competitive. They are both necessary and good.
“Rivers do not drink their own water; trees do not eat their own fruit; the sun does not shine on itself and flowers do not spread their fragrance for themselves. Living for others is a rule of nature. We are all born to help each other. No matter how difficult it is… Life is good when you are happy; but much better when others are happy because of you.”Pope Francis
At the start of this Thanksgiving week and the end of my search for how the light gets in; I’m grateful for this lesson written in the heavens.
