Remembered Radiance

 

“To continue one’s journey in the darkness with one’s footsteps guided by the illumination of Remembered Radiance is to know courage of a peculiar kind – the courage to demand that light continue to be light in the surrounding darkness.” – Howard Thurman

 

According to wikipedia:  

Howard Thurman (1899 – April 10, 1981) was an influential American author, philosopher, educator , theologian and civil rights leader. He was Dean of Theology and the chapels at Howard University and Boston University for more than two decades, wrote 20 books, and in 1944 helped found the first racially integrated, multicultural church in the United States.

When you face a time of darkness, whether it is that which comes as a result of developing and growing a revised version of yourself, or if it shows up in the midst of major life challenges, recall a moment, even if ever so slight of a sense of illumination. Carry that with you as if it were a blazing torch, into the shadow and know that it will indefinately light your way.
