Living Like A Standing Light
Living Everyday As A Standing Light
Whether you are new to the Light Style concept or a faithful follower of Standing Light, you may wonder from time to time what it means to be a Standing Light every day. It isn’t always about happiness and simplicity, or yoga and meditating. It’s about so much more yet one simple idea. You are the light if you choose to believe it.
"The world isn't split into good and evil. We've all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on." - Sirius Black, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Sometimes it’s about just being aware of the good and bad feelings around you and making the choice to simply keep going. Or about finding the good in the situation that you find yourself in and helping others find the light in their own lives. By accepting what we have been given we can move forward with all that we do. We can choose to see the dark and negative in our days, allowing those thoughts to cloud our judgment or we can accept that bad things happen and choose to stay in the light. We are only human, so dwelling on the negative may be tempting on some days! Connecting to our higher consciousness keeps us in the light and looking forward to what comes next.
Love is a powerful emotion. It has many levels and different forms. Love is patient, kind, thoughtful, supportive, challenging, magical, and more. Love is not always roses and candlelit dinners; it is also looking past the outward appearance. Love is understanding that we are all different. Love is honoring the spirit in all of us without holding it back. Love is finding the good and the light that shines from it and sharing it by how we act, what we say, and what we do.
By showing gratitude for everything that we have, we can feel more content and more aware of the beauty around us. This doesn’t mean listing out everything we value at the end of the day, though for some that may help, it means appreciating, instead of only desiring more. We have so many gifts to offer that they may get lost in the shuffle of life, taking a moment to remind ourselves how wonderful those gifts are brings us in tune to the light within ourselves and can also help us shine that light into the lives of those around us.
Standing Light was built with light, love, and a conscious understanding of our universal connection to all that is around us. You don’t have to go to extremes every day you just have to realize you ARE a Standing Light and live each day with that intention.
With Light filled regards,
