[Sunday Soul Food] The Lamp of Life

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Feeling dim in a world of darkness?

Just for today… let these words from Amy Lowell soothe your soul and uplift your Spirit. It is my intention that, through these words,  you see yourself as the magnificent being that you are.

Always we are following a light,
Always the light recedes; with groping hands
We stretch toward this glory, while the lands
We journey through are hidden from our sight
Dim and mysterious, folded deep in night,
We care not, all our utmost need demands
Is but the light, the light! So still it stands
Surely our own if we exert our might.

Fool! Never can’st thou grasp this fleeting gleam,
Its glowing flame would die if it were caught,
Its value is that it doth always seem
But just a little farther on. Distraught,
But lighted ever onward, we are brought
Upon our way unknowing, in a dream.
