Being Seen

Updated: Oct 8



On the Fourth of July, I sat on the tarmac of the military base with a thousand other people waiting for the fireworks to start. When I am in a huge crowd like this, I often feel insignificant (and not in a bad or uncomfortable way), and I wonder if there is any meaning to my short life or life in general.


Those were my thoughts as I made my way to the front stage to check out the band. After a few songs, I turned and started walking back towards my husband, hoping to find him in the crowd.


Then, for just a few moments, the mass of people parted like the Red Sea, and the narrow road ahead of me cleared out for as far as I could see. I noticed the setting sun at the end of the road, as the band played Coldplay’s song,Yellow.


When I heard the song's encouragement to look at the stars and to see how they shine for me and everything I do, I started smiling. I felt like a joyful child. Right then, this insight came through:

You are seen and loved.

You are seeing and loving.

You are Sight and you are Love.


And what is true for me, is true for all of us.
