Shine with own light?

During decades I sought the source of light within me.

Eventually I understood that I am no Sun but a Moon with no own light, able to only sometimes reflect the Sun's.

When in the northern hemisphere we celebrate the rebirth of the light, in my parts the Christian Christmas, it is good to remind myself of this insight.

Lest I fall back into believing that the light I might reflect is mine.

May you celebrate today the return of the light, yours and/or that of those around you.
