Since our whole planet revolves around the sun and we are completely dependent on its light, the idea of utilizing solar power just makes sense to me. But we have access to an even greater source of power that that resides in the world inside of– which is the light of our souls.
When I went to visit my mother recently, the community she lives in had a sign that said “ Our staff is SOULar powered” and I’ve been thinking about what that means. When we allow the light of our souls to radiate (and use that energy to power our lives) we naturally emanate kindness and compassion and want to be a source of love and healing in the world.
One of the best examples of someone who is SOULar powered is my mother’s nurse Jen. She is always gentle, kind and soothing, and I’m in awe of her tireless patience, dedication and willingness to help and problem solve. Jen is definitely powered by the incredible light and beauty of her soul and my Mother and I are so grateful to have her in our lives.
One of the things I learned from my mother is the importance of celebrating the birthdays of people we love. Your birthday isn’t about your age, its about your presence in the world - and it is the day your soul took its first breath and began offering its light and wisdom to the world. That is definitely a SOULar power worth celebrating!
Today is Jen’s birthday, so my Mother and I are celebrating her presence in the world and in our lives. We are so grateful for the love and light she radiates from deep within her soul and Jen inspires me to be SOULar powered too! So Happy Birthday Jen – we love and celebrate you.- may all your wishes come true!
I’ve always loved the word Delight! To me it means “of the light” and with all the darkness and fear in the world today, I wanted to create a place where we can gather together, restore our connection to the light and help one another to Delight The World with love, kindness, gentleness, beauty, compassion and grace. —Amy Rose, LCSW
