The traveler driving down a lonely country road at night,
is encouraged by the distant twinkling lights of her destination.
But it’s the headlights of her car that keep her from driving off the road.
In life we are drawn toward the bright light of desire and dreams.
But only the light we carry with us-
will keep our wheels on the road
and our footsteps on the path.
We have to keep that light burning.
This is a re-post from last year but I needed to remind myself of this today.
