Plants and Humans Need Light. Just Different Forms.
In so many ways, people are like plants. We have found ourselves in a beautiful garden, surrounded by all kinds of other lifeforms. We are fixed firmly to the earth, our roots stretching and expanding to grab hold of all the good dirt we can find. And like all vegetation, what we need most in order to survive is light.
But though sunlight is very beneficial for the body, the kind of light we truly need is the light of truth, and it isn’t as easy to obtain as raising our heads to the sun every morning. With our complex reality comes a complex world with endless choices, and finding the light our spirits crave isn’t always as simple as selecting A or B.”
“But though sunlight is very beneficial for the body, the kind of light we truly need is the light of truth.”
When you set the goal to strive for more light and truth in your life, the choices you make will naturally fall in line.
The key to unlocking this potential for increased light rests on only one person’s shoulders, however – yours. Maya Angelou once said, “Nothing can dim the light that shines from within, but you are the only one who can invite that light to live within you”.
