The Meaning of It All

from the June 2007 Star Beacon

Be the Light

by Ann Ulrich Miller

          Four months ago, we moved to this remote woods in southeastern Ohio, where it is peaceful and green. The deciduous woods surrounding us has a healing energy, both with its abundance of oxygen and its colors and sounds — particularly its bird life. The creek that runs along our road plays music of its own and contributes to the peaceful atmosphere.
          Coming here was good for a number of reasons, but leaving the mountains and our home in the West was a sacrifice. Let’s face it. The energy of the mountains does not compare to the lowlands of the East, at least in my opinion. I really have appreciated the beauty of this area, and the friendliness of the local people. River people are outgoing, generous and friendly.
          On the other hand, I’ve found it necessary to keep my vibration high. Like-minded people — as in “lightworkers” and “new agers” — are scarce here. I miss the socialization and sharing of metaphysical ideas. It is difficult to get excited about such mundane things as shopping, drinking beer, watching television, and discussing sports and the latest TV star scandal. I can carry on a casual conversation easily enough, but don’t talk to me about TV shows, or ask me to go to the mall for no reason.
I’d rather stay home and listen to the birds than make idle gossip with somebody who has nothing good to say about the next person. I don’t get worked up about the latest fashions or how much money so-and-so makes. Concentrating on Nature around me has helped maintain that steady vibration I feel I must have in order to ward off the doldrums of social isolation.
          Sometimes I’m starving for intellectual discussion, for talk about our ascension, our spirit guides, how we are healing ourselves, helping others and spreading awareness for a better world in which everyone is one. I often am flabbergasted that some people aren’t the remotest bit interested in such things. What could be more important than our spirituality?
I suppose some people are just not yet awake. Some prefer to remain asleep. Perhaps one day the egg shell will begin to crack, as was so wisely stated by one of my favorite lightworker friends. In the meantime, I can simply turn on My Light and help guide the way for them.
          And as long as I can BE the Light, I feel vibrant and glowing, no matter what is happening around me. My husband is seriously ill and had to be hospitalized recently. The only way I keep from falling apart is by keeping my vibration high. I AM the Light. Remembering that in everything there is a purpose, a deeper meaning, has been what uplifts me. Every day I face uncertainty about my future — well, doesn’t everyone? — but by staying in the present moment, knowing I am a lightworker and that my Light is projecting outward, gives me purpose and value, even if I’m not interacting with a lot of people as before.
          The world is in a terrible crisis politically, economically and environmentally. This in itself is reason for major depression in a lot of people, who feel hopeless to do anything about it.
          Well, there is one thing we can do — Be the Light. Shine our Light, maintain that high vibration wherever we go, and it will make a difference.
