This year I will be blogging about Beacons of Light, people who are inspiring.
A Beacons of light in my life has been Mother Theresa, she was born in Albania. Her mother’s words to help the poor stuck with her and hence she became Mother Theresa. A mother to all, she not only helped the poor but her humility was an inspiration to all. The feeling of love eminated from her and apparently when she walked into a room she had a peaceful presence.
There was an ocasion when she was at a radio station in the US to give an interview about the opening of one of her centres. The presenter asked how could he help her in promoting her work and raise funds. She said she wasn’t there to promote her work, but she was there to just to talk about the centre. In the end, she saw that the presenter just wanted to do something to help. She asked him to go out the next morning and find someone who was homeless and tell them that they are not alone. You see, she saw that in poor countries there was poverty of food and shelter but in the western world, people were starved of Love. At the end of the day, that’s all we all want.
Martin Luther King, Jr was another Beacon of Light, his transformative work to help African Americans to become free with his famous words ‘I have a Dream’. With those words he inspired African Americans to their version of freedom.
Nelson Mandela was another Beacon of Light. He started of as a terrorist but the years he spent in prison forced him into silence and he realised he had to end aparthied.
Hellen Keller lost both her sight and hearing at just 19 months old. She Became the Most Famous Disabled Person in the World. Although deaf and blind, Helen Keller graduated from college. She wrote about her life and became an activist for the disabled.
I listen to Jay Shetty, Tony Robbins, Wayne Dyer, Eckhart Tolle who are inspirational motivators who still inspire me and the world.
Having attended various retreats, courses and workshops around the world I certainly received a re-education. My teachers taught me new tools and I use them when I need to. It brought me to becoming a Wellness Ambassador. I am grateful and truly blessed.
It’s important to surround yourself with people that inspire you, that can bring you up and teach you how to pick yourself up when you feel down. If I wasn’t inspired, I don’t think I would like to inspire.
Thank you for tuning in. Don’t forget to post a comment if you enjoyed reading this and feel free to share this with one person who may benefit from it.
One thought on “Who is your Beacon of Light?”
Dear Lina, I loved this piece and all the Beacons of Life you have mentioned. It is true unless you meet people and teachers who inspire you and enlighten you can’t inspure others. I am finding this in my wellness journey. 🙏
