Have I mentioned before that Dom's bathroom in the hospital is cleaned by a robot? It is plopped in the bathroom, the door is closed and it emits UV light like a strobe and zaps away the germs.
staff named it Xhaiden 1, which means: cleansing beam of light. I find
it adorable that a squat little robot is zapping the germs away with a
cleansing beam of light.
I also find it symbolic. What else can I do but
ponder the cleansing beam of light in my own life, as daily my own
spirituality comes into sharper focus, and daily I must allow things to
fall away that do not serve. Though really, nothing is here to serve me,
rather I am here to serve. More importantly, daily, I ask for the good
to come, and the nasties to go away. I envision very uncomfortable
microscopic invader creatures being pushed out both by the chemo and by the
cleansing beam of light. I envision the light; it is stronger than any
rebellious cells. It is clearing out that which aims to destroy, and making all things new and whole.
I am grateful for this tangible reminder rolling throughout the halls, and visiting us.
