Brighter than the Sun

Source

Honor yourself

And your body

In your weakest times

Go deep within

You will find strength there

Know that you are not alone

Beauty lies from within

Strength that you never knew you had

And in sweet silence

There will creep up a light

Quietly at first

And ever so gently

It will grow to be

So intense

Brighter than the sun

It will shine through you

With penetrating heat

It will heal your limbs

And you will see who you

Truly are

Freedom lies ahead of you

One that you have never seen

To not see it

Would be a

Spiritual sin.

Okay, so I didn't wait until I came back from my travels to check-out your work.

I saw the title of this poem and since I love the Sun so much, I though: "What's brighter than the sun?"

You're right though, the Light within is brighter. It is a Spiritual Light. It is a beautiful Light, in my opinion and one can call on It at any time.

Awesome poem! May Wakan Tanka guide your path. Cheers!

...well I really love the title - and I too thought what can live up to that title - the hype and the promise? - well, the words lived up to that title - your poetic choice of words and how you weaved them into this celebration of life and living and knowing oneself - I must celebrate with you on this one and post its beauty to my Facebook page with a direct link back here - and yes another hubbravo from the epi-man!!

Started reading your composition, remember a famous quote "You cannot believe in honor until you have achieved it. Better keep yourself clean and bright: you are the window through which you must see the world" by Sir Walter Besant.

I like this hub because it is perfect with a nice photo, great writings and an awesome video. thanks, bookmarking it for further reference. Voted^^

Cutter I am very spiritual that's true. I do meditation and yoga. Yes I am familiar with the chakras and kundalini. I was trying to capture a spiritual enlightening and yes kundalini and the chakras aligning could be that. The light inside could be interpreted as the kundalini life force. Thank you for your great understanding and comments!
