How to Be a Light in a Too Often Dim World

Be a Light unto this world, a source of wisdom and inspiration. Use your presence, your gifts, your beauty, and your work to bring joy to those around you and to prove that good people do exist.

You Can Be a Light in a Too Often Dim World

You can offer hope to the hopeless and love to the unloved;

Peace to those who are tormented and love to those who feel all alone.

And you can be a source of inspiration for those who believe that good people no longer exist.

15 Ways to Be a Light in a Too Often Dim World

1. Live gladly

Seek to live each day in joy, peace, love, and harmony.

Do all things from a place of honest love. And let your presence be a gift to the whole world.

2. Be a gift unto others

Shine your Light on everyone you come in contact with. And let your love transform the world.

3. Help those who are in need of help

Offer people your love, time, guidance, help, and support.

Be there for those who feel lost, lonely, abandoned, and unworthy of love and affection. Help them realize that they are not alone.

4. Be a voice for those who have none

Be brave enough to address the things that trouble so many souls. Be the voice of those who have lost the courage to speak up. And seek to bring hope to their tormented hearts.

5. Do no harm

No matter how many horrible things others might say or do, and no matter how hard they might try to provoke you to go down at their level and swim in the same sea of darkness that they are swimming, please don’t!

“Give evil nothing to oppose and it will disappear by itself.” ~ Lao Tzu.

Rise above the darkness and choose to dwell in the Light.

6. Speak no evil

All minds are joined, and all souls are connected. What we say about a person, even if we say it in secret, it will be felt and known by the Truth of who they are, and by the Truth of who we all are. 

Speak no evil.

Do no harm.

Talk only about that which is loving, good, and kind. And if you can’t do that, sit in silence.

7. Judge no one

Since you cannot truly understand why certain things are the way they are and why some people behave in ways that are dark and painful, it is wise to refrain from negative comments, judgments, and harsh criticism and focus on the good things you would want to see happen.

8. Give focus only to that which is life-giving

There are no idle thoughts. With every thought we think and every word we speak, we give life to that which we focus on. And if we give focus to that which is dark and painful, we will create more pain and darkness.

Change your thoughts.

No matter how terrifying, cruel, and painful the reality of your senses might appear to you, and no matter how hard it might be to believe that something better could exist, do your best to take your focus away from that which troubles you and onto that which is life-giving and joyful. Follow the advice of the wise Neville Goddard and,

“Disregard appearances, conditions, in fact, all evidence of your senses that deny the fulfillment of your desire. Rest in the assumption that you are already what you want to be, for in that determined assumption you and your Infinite Being are merged in creative unity, and with your Infinite Being all things are possible.” ~ Neville Goddard

9. Pray with all your heart

Spend at least 5 minutes each day in communion with your own Soul and Inner Divinity.

Ask to be guided on the right path for you. 

Ask for wisdom to do all things from a place of Truth and Love.

Pray for wisdom, courage, clarity, and compassion.

Pray for humility, truth, and honest love.

Pray for your peace and the peace of all mankind.

Pray for your own healing, and the healing of the world. 

Pray with all your heart to know your Self, to love your Self, and to honor your Self.

Pray for all those things that can bring you peace, love, joy, and happiness. And believe that it is already done.

“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” ~ Mark 11:24

10. Honor your temple

Your body is the temple in which your Soul resides. Honor your temple and your temple will honor you.

“Our body is like armor, our souls like the warrior. Take care of both, and you will be ready for what comes.” – St. Amma Sycletice

11. Nurture your Soul

Your Soul is the essence of your Being and the Truth of who you are – it is the bridge between you and the Source of all Life – between you and all human beings.

When you nurture your Soul, you nurture your whole life. And when you nurture your life, you nurture the whole world. So make sure you,

“Nourish the soul, otherwis you will breed dragons and devils in your heart.” ~ Carl G. Jung

12. Find your Sacred Center

There is a place in your heart that is pure and free from anything that is dark and painful – free from hatred, free from fear, anguish, loneliness, and free from any feelings of unworthiness.

Seek to find that Sacred Place.

Ask for help in finding your way back into your Sacred Heart. And pray for wisdom, courage, and confidence to live all life from that pure and sacred place.

“When you know how much God is in love with you then you can only live your life radiating that love.” ~ St. Mother Teresa

13. Laugh a lot

Laugher is a cure for all that is dark and fearful. When you laugh, you turn your back to a world of pain and step into a world of beauty, joy, and happiness.

Laugh as much as you possibly can and as often as you possibly can.

Let your laughter awaken the hearts of all those men and women who have lost their way and who have forgotten the sweet taste of joy, of hope, and of love.

14. Dance through life

To dance is to celebrate the gift of life and the beauty of who we all are.  To dance is to come back to life.

“Dance, when you’re broken open. Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you’re perfectly free.” ~ Rumi

15. Do all things in the name of Love

Whatever you say and do, do it all in the name of Love.

Do it all for the good of your own Heart and Soul. 

Do it all for the benefit of all mankind.

Do it all for the Love of Love.
