Luminous (radiant) Lumen (light)!

* Debra Basham writes about Luminosity: 


                              No Matter how long the room has been dark
                                     an hour or a million years,

The moment the lamp of awareness is lit the entire room becomes luminous.

                                        You are that luminosity.

                                        You are that clear light.

                                                                          Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche 

Time passes, and we view each new moment through the moments we have already lived.  Painful moments, joyful, busy moments, leisure moments.  As a passenger on a train ride, we are watching the landscape out the window.  We see the fields and the towns.  We hear the call of the owl and watch the autumn leaves fall.  Through it all, we are more than what we see or say or feel or know.

Today the sun was shining, then it wasn't

Today it was snowing and blowing, and the roads were coated with ice.

Then they weren't.

Tonight the moon was big and bright, and now it isn't.

While everything outer waxes and wanes, you are that unchanging luminosity.

You are that clear light.

Tonight I am thankful.

Tomorrow I will recall today....

"....I am blessed to have each of you in my life.  We are all truly unique in our way of being, and from that place of uniqueness, when we come together with love and joy, the magic happens.  You all continue to amaze me with your gifts, the subtle nuances of your individual perspectives of the world and how you express that vision, and your willingness to share with one another who it is you truly are.  Thank You!"

*** If I were a wise one
                      I would do my part

 What can I give you?  Give my heart....
