I have seen a man take an electric bulb, place his hands on opposites sides, breathe deeply, and light the bulb, just by himself. I’ve also seen people lift other people with their hands and move them from one place to another, regardless of their weight or size. Of course, these are just exercises demonstrating certain individuals’ mastery over their energy. But they actually signify something far greater—that we as human beings were given a tremendous ability to change even our physicality. We have within us the potential to heal and transform ourselves, as well as that which is around us.
Viktor Frankel, in his book Man’s Search for Meaning, said “Everything can be taken from a man except for one thing—the last of all human freedoms: The ability to choose one’s attitude in a given set of circumstances, the ability to choose one’s own way.”
Today, no matter what your circumstances, no matter how heavy they may seem to weigh upon you, choose to exercise your freedom; decide to be the Light in a room full of darkness.
