reflect the light.

When we are born we are pure and uncut, just like a diamond. As life unfolds in its myriad of experiences, we can learn how to reflect the light in the world; each experience gives us a new cut, a new facet in our diamond. How brilliantly do diamonds sparkle whose facets are many, to whom life has given many cuts!

Diamonds are formed under intense pressure and heat. The same way oak trees grow stronger with contrary winds and lotuses appear from murky water. Strength and beauty can exist as a result of hardship. Remind yourself of this when you are under external pressure or when you feel the intense heat of emotion. Reminder yourself that you are working on unearthing and creating something profoundly beautiful like a diamond, strong like an oak tree and as sacred as a lotus flower.
