Lightly Child, Lightly

Strangely, all of life’s problems, dilemmas, and difficulties are now resolved not by negativity, attack, criticism, force, or logical resolution, but always by falling into a larger “brightness” — by falling into the good, the true, and the beautiful.

Richard Rohr, Adapted from Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life

    Such a stunning image! We all live under the same sun…/// the quote by R. Rohr so true, reminding me of this which I coincidentally I sent to a friend in an email on the 27th! It is all about choices…“The Sun will rise and set regardless. What we choose to do with the light while it’s here is up to us. Journey wisely.”
