“I survived because the fire within me burned brighter than the fire around me.” ~Joshua Graham
When our lives go up in flames, the best way to make it through the fire is to have a brighter fire that burns within us—a reason for living, a purpose for our lives, a passion that drives us. This might be our love for our family or friends or beloved animal companions. It might be work (paid or unpaid) that expresses our passion or gives us our purpose. It might be our relationship with the Divine that sustains us as we serve the world around us. Whatever it is, finding and tending that fire within helps us withstand the fires that may sweep through our outer world.
What is your inner fire?
