Sacred Life Easter Sunday - One Single Impression

Black Elk teaches us
'everything tries to be round'
... thus does 'power' work

I wrote of this idea first on Day 5 of My Sacred Life - Embracing a Larger Vision last October when I began this 'blogging' journey ... just 22 weeks ago ... 7 years into my 'retirement' from teaching. I quote Black Elk again here as I did then ... to remind myself (and others).

"The power of the world always works in circles, and everything tries to be round. The sky is round, and I have heard that the earth is like a ball, and so are all the stars. The wind, in it's greatest power, whirls: birds make their nests in circles, for theirs is the same religion as ours. The sun and moon, both round, came forth and go down again in a circle. Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing, and always come back again to where they were. The life of a person is a circle from childhood to childhood, and so it is in everything where power moves." Black Elk

On this Easter Sunday
as we remember that Christ died for our sins
and rose again ... may we also humbly consider
this affirmation is true for each of us:

"I am the light of God shining in the world."

Are we letting our light shine brightly?
I certainly hope so!
Blessed Be

I hope you'll check out both my entries in the Make a Wish Meme and consider participating yourself when time permits.
I've left a tantalizing incentive ;--)

It is way past Easter but I thought I would comment any way. I loved this quote, Life is a circle, it always speaks to me of eternity, no beginning and without end, our hope, our faith, our lives. Thanks for sharing this!

Greatfullivin – I’m glad you did comment, in fact … I enjoyed being reminded of this post as I cleared out my email box today ;--)
