The Light Inside

The Light Inside

By Jeffrey Besecker
What lights us all up? Our authentic story. The conversations. The truths. The untruths. What makes us who we are at our core?

Since the dawn of time, the same stories have been playing out in our lives. They are the ties that bind us all. They connect us and we all can relate to them. Grow from them. What are the stories that bring us together?

At some point in each of our lives, we all experience something - some pivotal moment, where all of our yeses have become a no, and we struggle to push through. To find meaning. The Light Inside. Each of us has a story — the tale of our struggles.

Be a More Powerful Voice for Action and Change- June 4th Special Episode
I come to you today with a heavy heart- The events of the past week have been a painful reminder. The time for a real and lasting change is at hand. We have to have to conversations that are all to discomfiting- Both internally and externally. Its time for life as we know it. The status Quo, to change. Systematic Racism must be dismantled. We can’t just be hollow cogs in a system of systematic racism and oppression. Life is about deeper connection. Deeper meaning for all. It's about equal human interaction and exchange. And Most importantly- forming a deeper understand. It's about finding balance and creating harmony as the human community. Its time we realistically acknowledge the very real and potentially life threatening struggle faced daily by People of Color. It's time we have the difficult and uncomfortable conversations about racism and white privilege. Its beyond time that we truly address exactly what that struggle is. How do we each perceive it? How do we each act in regards to it? How can we build more empathy towards the struggle of People of Color? Then share a greater understanding a responsibility to dismantle it. We are taking a moment to pause. In acknowledgement and respect- of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Sean Reed, Tony McDade and the many other People of Color who have lost their lives. Who have struggled against the hands and feet of systematic racism and oppression-Simply because of the color of their skin. We are taking some time to reflect, listen, then act- as we all should, about what truly matters in this life. We can not be silent, nor will I remain silent or inactive. Black Lives Matter. For now. We are taking time to listen. To be open, and engaging in a way that advocates for real, meaningful and lasting change. To be become a greater ally for People of Color. Marginalized Individuals must carry the weight of their identity, shaped through oppression-every single day, for better or for worse. As allies, we must come to understand that this is a weight that we, too-must be willing to carry and never put down. I personally realize-  there is much to learn and unlearn as a result. I realize that it will be work and that mistakes may be made along the way towards creating a better future. Because an ally might have more privilege-and recognizes said privilege, they are powerful voices alongside  the voices of the oppressed.I come to you today, To be a More Powerful Voice for Action and Change. “If we want our children to grow up in a nation that lives up to its highest ideals, we can and must do better.” Please visit the links in our show notes and stay tuned at thelightinside.us/make-change to discover more ways you can help create change for the future.

Today, we looked at how As Individuals, We grow by giving and nurturing others The more we give, the more we get. When we help others, we create the good that comes back to us.  And, By acting selflessly and building the dreams of others, we plant the dream seeds that create our own growth and success.  Adversity gives us the challenges to experience the infinite ability to change and arrive at our best self.  By simply saying “we can” becomes the very momentum necessary to reach our potential and obtain our highest aspirations.  Motion Creates Emotion. In order to achieve success, you have to get up to do something.  Our goals establish our mindset to do, and be our best self.    Some of our greatest transformations in life happen not in the planning, but as a result of the unexpected- The certain need For Change.  Even in The Light of darkness, there exists a path forward if we strike when the iron is hot. When the chance for change presents itself. As we remove the  fear and push the envelop, we become the change that helps others be better. Exercise The Power of choice- Am I going to get knocked down or am I going to rise above? What we do today, becomes all of our tomorrow’s. In the words of Zig Zigler— "You've got to be and do, before you can have." Surrender. Then Rise Above.

You've Got One Big Life
Do you ever feel like things just aren't quite moving in life? You have a vision. The Focus is dialed in. You've planned and set goals. You wake up and go, but... So often we are just tumbling forward in life. Pushing through like a freight train. Intention is necessary. Momentum is good. Inertia is the force of nature that moves things forward. Action creates. But what about the wait? The stopping off point between now and then. There are lessons in the silence - The space between.  Many times, If we are not open and attuned to the voice in that space, we miss half the ride. What feels like a season of inaction can often be a season of our greatest potential. A time to reflect. A pause, to gather and focus within. It is often during these crucial times we experience quantum leaps of forward growth. When we embrace the stillness, we become ready to leap forward into new adventures. Life is a constant unfolding - learn to appreciate that sacred space.  Everything we go through helps us grow. Our lives are like book chapters and every day is a story waiting to be told. Pay attention to the lesson; then listen for the voice inside asking you- "What comes next?"
