“We are all born with a divine fire in us. Our efforts should be to give wings to this fire and fill the world with the glow of its goodness. ” … Abdul Kalam
Ah-h-h-h yes … the fire. I recognize The-Fire-of-Life. Been there … done that … came out the other side of Life’s campfire looking like a roasty, toasty marshmallow! Most amazing of all … (to me anyway) … is that it seems that I have absorbed a part of aforementioned fire … and it’s not going away! Perhaps this newly acquired blaze is the reason for Sunshine Sue’s fancy, new sunglasses.
In retrospect I think that Abdul Kalam is correct and that there was always a spark of Life’s “Divine fire” inside of me … and that maybe … as with any simmering nugget … it simply needed a little encouragement and a few extra puffs of “Life-breath” to really spark it up. It would seem that I am a brand new campfire … carrying Life’s warmth and encouragement … and my own sunny and bright nature wherever I go. I flow and Life glows. How great is that!??!
I am on a new road these days. Unlike my previous road which required a fair bit of maintenance to keep traffic moving … travelling on this one is a pleasure. When I wonder where I am supposed to go next Life thoughtfully provides kind strangers and synchronistically placed directional signs for my enlightenment. I never stay lost or confused for long on this road … between Life’s spotlight (can’t miss potholes with that shining on them!) … and my own inner fire I’m feeling … not only toasty warm … but also very motivated to keep moving. I’m not sure if my little corner of the “Divine Fire” will “fill the world with the glow of its goodness” … but what I am sure of is that the fire’s constant presence has Perky Polly breaking out enough hot dogs, marshmallows and cold drinks for a huge crowd … and if she is getting ready for a party … then so am I. Bring on the glow girls … it’s time to share some joy.
