The Lamp Inside


Many years ago, in the midst of huge life changes that I thought I would not survive, I was inspired by Scripture to write this poem.  I found it today…not by mistake.  The Universe/Source/God/Spirit does not make mistakes.  Synchronicity has been very present lately. May it help you find your own light.  You are the light of the world.  And, together we guide one another.   In our weakest moments we find hope and grace holding us up. In the moments of precious joy we find the light of the world reflecting through the eyes of the Divine.  Let’s hang on to that!



The Lamp Inside

We flicker on and off
from inside out
as the very core
and complete essence
of guidance and spirit.

We wait for others

to find the switch

expecting them to

see our truth

and place our worth

like a price tag on an item.
Light attracts all light

like a magnet

waiting to cling onto another.

It is the rhythm of each being

as the soul searches for answers

into the unknown.


Whenever we let go

of all fallacies,



and control…

heaviness disappears

and we are left
with the vastness of love.
We become full.
We encase compassion.

We embody grace.
We embrace unconditional love.
We are what lives without ego

as we surrender to ourselves

the light that leads us through life

as Divinity.

(Inspired by Luke 11:33-36)

“No one lights a lamp, then hides it in a drawer.  It’s put on a lamp stand so those entering the room have light to see where they’re going.  Your eye is a lamp, lighting up your whole body.  If you live wide-eyed in wonder and belief, your body fills up with light….Keep your eyes open, your lamp burning, so you don’t get musty and murky.  Keep your life as well lighted as your best-lighted room.” – Luke 11:33-36
