“We’re born with millions of little lights shining in the dark
And they show us the way
One lights up, every time you feel love in your heart
One dies when it moves away”
I love listening to music, even more so when the lyrics really resonate with me.
One of my favourite albums this year is Passenger’s Little Lights – (watch on Youtube)
The title track is beautiful. It refers to ‘little lights’ we are all born with in our hearts. When something negative happens to us or because of us one of the lights will extinguish but through love and living a good life we are always igniting more.
I love the image these lyrics instill. It’s true we are born with infinite love, our lights shine brightly with no judgements or expectations in place to diminish them. As we grow and develop a belief system we begin to lose our connection to our inner stillness and we may not shine as brightly as we once did.
As life progresses it’s inevitable we love, we laugh, we cry, we grieve, we feel hope and disappointment, but no matter what life throws at us we always get the chance to light a new light. Each moment is a new beginning, a chance to ensure we are never in darkness.
How brightly are you shining today?
