Night Light- June 7th
The mind is its own place, and in itself- Can make a heaven of hell, an hell of heaven.
- John Milton
If we listen to the news, we can hear stories of natural disasters, starvation and deprivation, torture and bloodshed. Yet we may sit in our homes and moan, "Life isnt fair to me. Nothing ever works out the way I want it to."
If we could lose our self-centeredness and look outside of our little world, we would realize our hell is of its own creation. When we see what we dont have and what we can't change, we are building the foundations of a hell memorial. We are striving to preserve the have-nots and the are-nots as a fitting tribute to all we cannot be.
We can stop eulogizing such negativity. Sure, there are many bad things in this world and a lot of bad people. Sure, there are many things we cannot do and possibly never will be able to do. But we can tear down the tribute to hell and erect instead a tribute to heaven- to all of the things we have and can do, to all the things we can change.
I can build tributes to my life, not memorials. The Serenity Prayer can help me see the blessings, not bitterness, tonight.
I'm gonna marry the night,
I wont give up on this life...
I am a warrior queen.
Live passionately tonight...
