"Life is a hard battle anyway. If we laugh and sing a little as we fight the good fight of freedom, it makes it all go easier. I will not allow my life's light to be determined by the darkness around me." - Sojourner Truth
Sojourner Truth was a woman of great courage. She, of course, was focused on the rights of African Americans in the years after slavery ended. She was particularly committed to black women’s rights. But she calls us to humanity—to laugh and sing in our fight for freedom. Today it may be freedom from addiction, hatred, or poverty. Tomorrow it may be something else; but, our humanity prevails in the fight. Our humanity, the Light in Truth and Beauty, is a gift from the Divine. No matter our battle, or dark our day, we receive our Light to battle our darkness. Light is the pathway to Peace. Love is the Light. And we are grateful. Namaste
Gentle Thoughts: What is the nature of your darkness today? And where is your Light?
