#49 LIGHT DRAINS AND WHAT IT REALLY MEANS TO "BE THE LIGHT"
Mar 20, 2018
The Journal Deck
What does it mean to "be the light?" We whip that phrase around so much these days that I feel like Yogi Bhajan's words "travel light, live light, spread light, be the light" has perhaps gotten lost in its meaning.
I'm not saying that I know exactly what he meant, but if I had to guess, he means something similar to what Rebecca Campbell pointed to in her book, "Light Is the New Black," which stopped me in my tracks. You cannot be someone else's light. You can only be your own and inspire others to find theirs. Being the Light, isn't giving up your Light.
Have you ever met someone who seemed like they were turned on to something that you weren't? That's their Light, and you have your own too. It's your soul purpose to be that Light.
So I ask you, are you being the Light or an outlet? And if you're being an outlet and getting drained, what do you do about it? And why do you need to be the Light more than ever?
