The traveler driving down a lonely country road at night, is encouraged by the distant twinkling lights of her destination.
But it’s the headlights of her car that keep her from driving off the road.
In life we are drawn toward the bright light of desire and distant dreams.
But only the light we carry with us, will keep our wheels on the road and our footsteps on the path.
We have to keep that light burning.
This is a re-post from a few years ago but sometimes I need to remind myself about trusting my own light.
