In light of the recent events in Paris, Beirut and other parts of the world, people everywhere have been shaken to the very core of their existence. The tragic events which have taken many innocent lives have highlighted fear, confusion, insecurity, doubt for the future and judgment of people. There is anger at the violent acts against unsuspecting people. World leaders are in conversation on who is to blame and what retribution to dish out to the guilty offenders; there are agendas at play which have nothing to do with the truth of who we are.

The truth of who we are is love and light. You may wonder how we can focus on love and light when there is evidence of hate and darkness all around us. The hate and darkness are not who we are, they have never been who we are. Those people who live in darkness and hate have disconnected from their true essence. They do not see the powerful light within them. Since they have closed themselves off to the true essence of love within themselves, how are they also to express love to others? They are lost within the abyss of fear, insecurity, pain, harm and darkness.

There is only one way out of the darkness; through the light. It is through being aware of your magnificence and shining your light into the dark shadows of life. It is the only way to escape the darkness. It has never been more significant to stand up for everything that is pure, decent, loving and life giving than now. As Jesus said "Finally brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy think about such things". We need to focus on all that is decent and loving in our world.

We need to have faith in our humanity. There are many people who are using their gifts and talents to serve the world for good. In fact, that is why we are here. We are here to use our unique gifts to serve others and create a better world for all. As we help lift others up, we rise ourselves. This is the only way that we can grow and evolve consciousness. There are so many problems in the world, but these are only opportunities awaiting creative solutions. These creative solutions are awaiting to be born and brought to life by you.

The time is now to look inside of you and see what an amazing gift you are to the world. Your unique take on things is needed. You, taking a stand for a better world, are needed. Take a stand for what you believe, take a stand on the goodness that exists in the world. It is critical to use your voice to make a difference in the world. This is your world and it is your birth right to have a blessed life. Believe that you have the ability and strength to stand for what is beautiful in this world.

You have at your disposal all internal resources to rise up and shine your light on humanity. Showcase what is sacred about being a human being. Spread love and kindness to your fellow man. Open your heart to the magic of life. Offer support and hope to people that need it. Be the leader that you know you were born to be and show humanity there is another way. A way that is based on respect and reverence for each other that highlights decency, authenticity and generosity of spirit. Be the light in the darkness and have faith in your being, in your solidness and in your steadfast commitment to freedom, truth and love.
