Wishing all of you a blessed Christmas and a wonderful New Year ahead. May we help to brighten the Light of love, justice and hope in the world and dispel the darkness of repression, injustice and despair.
Someone sent me these words from a group calling themselves ‘The Grandmothers’:
“Do not be afraid when those whom you revere die,” the Grandmothers say, “for love will fill the gap. When a five hundred watt bulb burns out, immediately one hundred fifty-watt bulbs or one thousand tiny five-watt bulbs flick on. These smaller bulbs may hardly be noticed at first, but a plethora of these smaller bulbs light up the darkness. And when they beam their lights together through the Net of Light, they really light up the darkness.
“There is no dearth of light/love on your beloved planet today and there never will be,” the Grandmothers promise. “When Great Ones pass on, their light is released to spread over the universe, to blaze and broadcast over a much wider area than was possible for them before. No longer confined to the limits of one small form, the light of these Great Ones now radiates farther and wider.
“As their light moves outward, it illumines the cosmos (including the earth). And at the moment this happens, your individual lights come together to dispel the darkness around you, to encourage and empower one another, and light the path for those who come after you. You are one of the lights we are talking about,” the Grandmothers say, “and many of you are glowing far brighter than you think. Some of you may measure today at ten watts, at twenty-five watts, or at a hundred watts or more. But whatever your potency at this moment,” they say, “you are burning clear and true and your power will increase over time.
“It is your job to shine your light,” they say. “This is also your delight. Shining is your nature,” the Grandmothers explain, “because shining is what a light does.”
