Daily Inspiration ~ April 20th

there is a quiet light

~

“There is a quiet light that shines in every heart.

It draws no attention to itself, though it is always secretly there.

It is what illuminates our minds to see beauty, our desire

to seek possibility, and our hearts to love life.

Without this subtle quickening our days would be empty and wearisome,

and no horizon would ever awaken our longing.

Our passion for life is quietly sustained from somewhere in us

that is welded to the energy and excitement of life.

This shy inner light is what enables us to recognize and receive our very presence here as blessing.

We enter the world as strangers who all at once

become heirs to a harvest of memory, spirit, and dream that has

long preceded us and will now enfold, nourish, and sustain us.

The gift of the world is our first blessing.”

~ John O’Donohue ~
