A Poem: Finding the Light Within

July 4, 2012 0 Comments

It’s been a long time (maybe 10 years) since I wrote a poem.  This one just came to me as I was driving my boys to the playground on Saturday.  I had to pull over to write it down.  I finally have an internet connection at home (we lost our cable due to the bad storms here on Friday) so I can share it with you all.  It’s short and simple, but meaningful to me on this transformational journey.  I hope it blesses you too!

Finding the Light Within (by Kandace Jones)

Final layer shed, I am free!

To love all unconditionally and be fully me,

Individual expression of the Divine,

Come to find out it was there all the time,

Hidden by all I thought I should be,

Little did I know my natural self was the key,

To unlock the door to the Kingdom of Heaven inside,

Now, you, me, God, there’s nothing that can divide,

We are ALL one – connected through Spirit to our Universal Source,

If we all knew this we could be such a powerful force,

Magnifying the good of God in all Its fullness and beauty,

I know in time everyone be clear that this is our only duty,

Until then, I will continue to be the light,

Carrying the torch for our master teachers who consistently shone bright.

Keep shining!

About the Author:

I used to live life shackled by fear, doubt, and worry. I put on a happy face while navigating my day-to-day duties, but I was emotionally drained, stressed, and unhappy. When I hit rock bottom, and was diagnosed with depression and anxiety, I was determined to live life differently. I knew there had to be another way. Out of that determination, and guidance from Spirit, the "Living in the Light" blog was born. It documents my spiritual journey out of the darkness and into the Light. After nine months of publicly sharing my journey, and consciously releasing my attachment to the ego, I experienced a powerful spiritual awakening. I went from living in fear, doubt, worry, and stress to complete inner peace. My greatest passion has become assisting others on their own journey to inner peace. My spiritual memoir, From Stress to Peace: An Intimate Journal on the Journey from Living in Darkness to Living in the Light, is available now on Amazon and Click the tabs at the top of the page to learn more about the From Stress to Peace 21-Day Challenge, Living in the Light Retreats, 1:1 sessions, and the Living in the Light Community - all of which are designed to support your journey to inner peace. I appreciate you taking the time to visit the blog and look forward to supporting you in any way I can!
