What Is Your Color?

The unfolding of your words gives light;
it gives understanding to the simple. (Psalm 119:130)

The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly.. (Proverbs 20:27)


Who is putting the lens of color in front of your eyes?

What is distorting the light into your eyes, causing you not to see your true kind?

Blaming on the world? Blaming on the main stream? Never evaluating yourself?

Why do some people not judge themselves by skin color but stand firm to be who they are?

Don’t you want that pure heart with undistorted integrity?

I know I want that new heart because I don’t want to live under other’s speculation or with my own lens of color.

Is it possible to live that kind of life? Is there any place in the world without the truth being twisted?

The light is refracted into our eyes and enters our brains.

Even you can block the light from going to people’s eyes, but you cannot control their minds.

So why are you bothered by the words or views projected from their eyesight?

What they see about you is the image from their heads, which is not the true you.

It is foolish to be scared to frozen by their imagination like a shadow without body.

If you don’t want to live your life like a fool, then don’t look at the assumption cast from people’s eyes.

Instead, lift up your head and look to the direction of the true Light!

When you focus on the source of Light, you will see you are shinning by reflecting that Light.
