If light is in your heart, you will find your way home.
I love this quote by Rumi. Does everyone have a light in their heart? I think it is there only if we choose to have it. How else can we explain evil? Where does the light come from? I’m not a theologian, so I don’t know if it is within you when you are born, or if you have to allow the light to live in you. Maybe it’s both. But I do know, that when we have light in our hearts, we can become so energized for the positive, that it changes us. The things we do and say will all be affected by the light. Light can either reduce the darkness, or even eliminate the negative completely. It is up to us.
I think what Rumi is saying here, is that the light helps us to find our way home. The light will guide our lives, to where we should be. It will help in our thinking and actions. First and foremost the heart is aware of love when there is light, and that we should love our neighbors as ourselves. The light also guides us to a strong sense of peace. Where could there be a better place to live, than to live in a home (or place) of peace? Our hearts are where we live. Our hearts are where we belong.
Blessings to everyone and peace!
