I am the light of the world.
Wow! Hard to believe. It reminds me of the old spiritual, This little light of mine.
It is stated in step twelve in Alcoholics Anonymous that having had a spiritual awakening, we are to carry this message of salvation to people suffering and to continue our spiritual practice of being light to the world in all our affairs continually.
The third principle of Unitarian Universalism asks us to affirm and promote the acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth of people in our congregations and throughout the world.
The light that we manifest is not ours alone. This proclamation is not an ego thing, it is just the opposite, a statement that we are part of something bigger, a Transcendent source, which flows through us if we allow it to heal ourselves and everybody and everything we come into contact. The choice is ours. First, we must become aware of it within ourselves. When we do we experience great joy and celebration.
