Through Minds’ Eyes This Week – The Light in the Darkness

This season is the season of bringing new light into the world. This is the time of year that the sun is set the lowest in the sky and it is something that is representative of death and coldness. In ancient cultures, the worship of the sun would increase in the hopes that the sun would rise once again. The coldest time of the year tended to be the shortest days and it is also the time where the most frequent occurrence of sun festivals and the birth dates of sun gods would be. To the ancient people, this is a light in the darkness to them. It continues to this day with the festivals of Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Christmas. These holidays also celebrate the light, whether it is literal or allegorical.

There is a lot of darkness in this world and people are starting to understand that. We need to see the light in the world and we need to be able to come to that light. The Christs always said that they were the way, the truth, and the life. They always talked about themselves being the light of the world. It is not by the Christs themselves, but it is by what they represented, which is the way that they taught. They talked about themselves being the example of this light.

In this day and age, we need to focus on the way and not the people. In this new axial age, the focus is being brought away from the people that brought about these changes and it is being brought to the changes themselves. This starts with a change in the individual. The focus in this new age is on the individual since much of that is being lost in the global age of interconnectedness. In this age of infinite numbers of connections, we need to be able to come together as small communities and as individuals. That is why community is important. No matter who we are and no matter what community we feel like we belong to, we are a part of a universal family of humanity. That is the light of the world that we all need to discover.
