All the wisdom traditions and religions of the world speak of enlightenment, of coming out of the darkness and into the light. When we live in the light of hope, all things are possible. How do you get there? Through meditation, prayer, time spent alone and still. Why is living in hope a worthy goal? Without hope, the wounded inner child never risks vulnerability in order to be healed. When we are healed, we then become beacons of hope, shining where hope is needed.
