The Light of Dawn

light of dawn

Have you seen the sunrise in all of its glory?

It begins with a muted hue of light

Bursting into a tapestry of red, purple, pink, orange.

Spreading across the horizon.

A precursor to the expansion of light

Eradicating the last vestiges of darkness.

So too, with you,

 And your awakening to who you really are.

Dear One, how often have you seen the dawn and reveled in its beauty, in the hope that comes with the light? The darkness fades as the fire in the sky emerges slowly and then dramatically fills your field of vision with color and beauty.

When you see this every day, consider the similarities to your own personal awakening, as your internal flame bursts forth to fill you with hope. In the same way, your light fills your immediate surroundings and beyond, reaching further than you realize. Your personal light diminishes the shadows of fear as it rises further, joining others and their personal flames of spirit and love and hope.

You are the solution. You are the source of love. You are the impetus for change. You have the power to create a world of love with a brilliant light that emanates from within to all who cross your path. You bathe in the light of others who wish to share their hope and love with you. The brilliant dawn you see every day is a reflection of you and how far-reaching your offerings of love can be.

You, Dear One, have that fire within and it is yearning to emerge from behind the clouds of insecurity and fear. It is there now, seeking a way to reach others. It may be liberated with a conscious decision on your part to share your love, your vulnerabilities, your connection with others. Or, it may seep out through the wounds you nurse, those cracks in your external veneer that show others that you, too, have suffered and survived.

You are not alone in your suffering, just as you are not alone in your strength. Do not focus on the suffering, but on the emergence of strength that is a result of that suffering. For every trial you have encountered on this personal journey of yours has empowered you more. You have not failed. You have survived, you have thrived, and you have the experience to help others.

Your own life experiences offer you a reason for compassion for others. Rather than judging others, consider how they are just like you; learning, growing, seeking love and connection. For you all have come from the same Source. You all have memories of that intimate connection with All. And you all seek a way to find that connection once again in this world of illusions.

Allow that internal flame to emerge as a beacon to others, as a source of love and compassion towards others who are just like you. Compassion is what connects each and every one of you. For it cannot exist in the same breath with judgment. It cannot exist in the same breath with fear. It can only exist in conjunction with love.

When you doubt yourself, look towards the dawn and remind yourself that it reflects back to you that which is your true nature. That which is the true nature of all of creation, of all those with whom you interact every day.

Move your focus from that mind of yours which sees fault and flaws and fears. Move your focus instead to your heart, that part of you which knows only love and compassion. See the flame within and accept that you are at the dawn of your own awakening. The time is now, Dear One. You are ready. You need not question whether you have prepared enough. For the world needs you now to allow your internal light to ignite others to action and awakening.

Reflect upon this as you begin your day, as you see the majesty of the Mother as she stretches outward from the horizon time and time again. She moves across your globe encouraging all to awaken with her. Her light never ceases, just as your light continues to shine, though often hidden by doubt.

Emerge in all of your glory, Dear One.

Trust that you can make a difference

With every breath that you take.

Share your light with others

And see how they awaken as the connection grows.

Be at peace, Dear One.

For you are the embodiment of love and strength and compassion.

You are an extension of our love.

Dear One with All of Thee.
