All That Is, Is Light

Standard

“All that is, is light.” – Erigena

“In a very real sense, we’re all made of sunlight.” – Thom Hartman

“Light gives of itself freely, filling all available space. It does not seek anything in return; it asks not whether you are friend or foe. It gives of itself and is not thereby diminished.” — Michael Strassfeld

“When you possess light within, you see it externally.” — Anaïs Nin

“Ever since we crawled out of that primordial slime, that’s been our unifying cry, ‘More light.’ Sunlight. Torchlight. Candlelight. Neon, incandescent lights that banish the darkness from our caves to illuminate our roads, the insides of our refrigerators. Big floods for the night games at Soldier’s Field. Little tiny flashlights for those books we read under the covers when we’re supposed to be asleep. Light is more than watts and footcandles. Light is metaphor. Light is knowledge, light is life, light is light.” — Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider

“Death is not extinguishing the light; it is putting out the lamp because dawn has come.” — Rabindranath Tagore

“There is a muscular energy in sunlight corresponding to the spiritual energy of wind.” –Annie Dillard

“If you are in a spaceship that is traveling at the speed of light, and you turn on the headlights, does anything happen?” — Steven Wright

“Truly, it is in darkness that one finds the light, so when we are in sorrow, then this light is nearest of all to us.” — Meister Eckhart

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our Light, not our Darkness, that most frightens us.” — Marianne Williamson

“God’s first creature, which was light.” — Francis Bacon

“The original religion of the Blackfeet was the worship of light personified.” — James Willard Schultz

Coming soon in a new edition from Vanilla Heart Publishing, “The Sun Singer,” a celebration of light.
