Reflection for the Week - March 26

Let there be light. Graphic portrayals of light are overwhelming. The inability to take in all of what is there enables us to remember that we’re finite. This truth shines into our very existence; yet fading memory continues to entice us to reach for autonomy.

Paying attention to our limitedness, rather, should be understood to somehow give us our deep significance. In contrast to the darkness of solely self-reliance and self-determination – the aim to be capital “I”, so propagated in Western culture, we need to recognize, perhaps again and again, that it is the Infinite One who tells the story of light and darkness.
