“The real us is pure love, pure light.” ~Don Miguel Ruiz 

Have you ever had one of those moments where you come to a sudden realization of something? You can almost look back and see it; a moment of awe that occurs, your entire being just lights up in understanding. In cartoons it would be the lightbulb that hovers above and literally lights up.

One of those occurred while reading the other day. Soaking up rays of love from the sun and reading, The Four Agreements. I had just started reading the intro and it was there, right in front of me. A reminder of how intertwined in the light we are.

This magical passage spoke to me:

“He looked at his hands, he felt his body, and he heard his own voice say, “I am made of light; I am made of stars…Everything is made of light,” he said, “and the space in-between isn’t empty.” 

In the beginning of this book, in that simple moment was such an important reminder of how connected we can truly be to the light.

His words remind us that we can come to this realization in an almost out of body experience. We can suddenly feel connected and in tune with our light, we just have to be open with that idea. Embracing the light in the world around us can teach us how to accept and embrace our inner light.

We are good and we are powerful but first we are light. We have within us this intensity to connect and be so much more than we often give ourselves credit for. We just need to perceive and manifest in this. When we understand the potential of how much power and light we have, we open ourselves up to receive it. We become the pure, light beings that we were meant to be.

With light filled regards,
