“This little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine.” – Harry Dixon Loes
At a difficult time of life, in a desperate dream, Carl Jung struggled against a horrendous freezing wind that tore at his greatcoat. This wind demolished everything in its path. It was menacing, paralyzing, inescapable.
Then he looked down into his own hand and saw a flame.
He knew this tiny flame was the one vital thing.
If everything else perished, he would still keep his own flame, his own soul, burning.
It was manageable, to keep this flame alive in his palm.
Each of us carries our own flame. Our unique light.
For ourselves and for the world.
This is what we can offer.
Our spirit of love.
The world swarms with sad news, mad news, bad news.
We have charge of the flame in our own hand, in our own inner life.
Reach for light and love, and keep that flame burning.
We must care for our soul.
We can do this.
Practice inner peace.
Bask in serenity.
Love what you love.
Love whom you love.
Love yourself better than ever.
How to lighten up?
How to feed your soul?
How to keep your flame alive?

How to Lighten Up Now with Your Powerful Heart Energy
I compiled a treasure trove of guided meditations, breathwork, and self energy healing, published as Calm Comfort Meditations (Jan. 2021).
Perhaps you downloaded it (free at that time, and the e-book is still only 1.99, paperback 6.99).
Imagine my surprise last week, when this book was chosen by the Independent Book Publishing Professionals Group as one of the Best Indie Books of 2022.
Calm Comfort Meditations is a Finalist of the Mind-Body-Spirit category in the 2022 Next Generation Indie Book Awards, the world’s largest book awards program for independent publishers and self-published authors.
I would love to relaunch this book and get it into the world, where it can do more good.
But I have some hurdles to leap. One of them is that (until this week) the book had no reviews, and it needs tons of ratings just to gain visibility.
If you happen to have any version of this book, I would be SO grateful if you would rate it here with a few stars.
(If you’d like to drop in a “review” sentence, that would be lovely, also. But no worries either way. I feel awkward asking for favors, and I never ask for donations.)
In a couple of weeks we will relaunch this award-winning book, making the e-book free for a few days.
But Much More Importantly,
keep the flame of love and joy burning –
in the palm of your hand,
in your heart,
in your soul.
