Choosing Light

Dark the soul and black the heart
Of those who would ill will impart
Light the soul and bright the day
Of those who keep ill will at bay

Janice T Keller-Kimball 2011
========================
This poem popped into my head as I walked along the path that runs behind my house to the mountains beyond.  Always try to remember that revenge, and ill will are not the path which lead to happiness and enlightenment.  It is easy to forget sometimes, to get caught up in the pain and hurt others may visit upon us, then more than ever it is important to rise above these thoughts.  To act in light and love, and keep our feet firmly upon our path though the temptation of the moment calls to us, beckoning seductively at our moments of weakness.  It is essential to willfully redirect our thinking then and stay to the path which ensures our spiritual growth.   We are all of us human, but it is our choices in the dark times which define us as human beings.
