Sinking into Light

"I've got a sinking feeling..."
she said,
as if it were a bad thing,
and yet, I realized,
that indicated that she understood
she'd let somebody down,
that she could have done better.
What if we took that sinking feeling
and just dropped right into it;
took all those times we let our brothers and sisters down
-- all those times we let YOU down --
and allowed ourselves to feel that sinking, and to see
that it doesn't lead to Smaller Self and darkness
but rather into Larger Self, and Light;
a light that does indeed sink in,
and in so doing helps us to become
enlightened beings.

Ah, Light --
our longing for You
grows deeper every day.
