Elul Reflections - Day 10

There is a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in.  
               ~ Leonard Cohen

For the last four or so months, light has taken on new meaning; it has become a metaphor for how I maneuver through my life.

Light is a cocoon of warmth that has surrounded me with protection. With each breath, I breathe in light and I breathe out darkness. In essence, light cleanses my soul and comforts me when I need it.

While darkness or challenges are part of life, they aren't life. Next time you feel like you need a boost, breathe in the light and breathe out that which is challenging to you. It helps. My beloved friend, Reb Sarah Cohen, told me that 'when we close our eyes and let the light infuse every cell in our bodies, we are flled with our inner rainbows." I love this metaphor.

May light be a surround you as you journey through your days.
