When we think about moonlight we think about the soft light that filters down and illuminates the darkest night with a silvery glow. When the moon is at its fullest the moonlight can turn the night into a seemingly softly lit, beautiful day. Oh, how beautiful the light of the moon.

As beautiful as that is, the truth is that the moon really doesn’t have any light of its own. The moon moves in the sky like a quiet sentinel and it is only when the light of the sun strikes it just right that we have what we call moonlight. It is the powerful sun that creates light energy with its boiling gases. It is the sun that warms the planet and grows the earth.

There is a power in the universe that is greater than all the suns in all the galaxies and it is constantly sending forth its light. There are places and people that are blocked from that light for a myriad of reasons. Our role is not to separately try to generate that light but to reflect what is already there.

In other words, you and I are meant to be moonlight. We are meant to softly light the darkness. Some of us spend our lives looking for a purpose, something to generate. Our purpose is and has always been to reflect the light.

We reflect the light by being like the light. When we love, when we are kind, when we are uplifting, when we are happy, when we are grateful we reflect the light. When we are full, fully conscious, we reflect the light most strongly.

Yes, my dear, you are like the beautiful moonlight only stronger. Shine on.
