The bright side is the inner side, the mind side of life, and is claimed through common sense, optimism, and expectancy.
On the bright side lies that which is good and true, happy and generous, radiant, warm, and beneficial. It is the region of the soul where good things are always entering from the Spirit side to bless us all.
What's unique about the Bright Side is that Bernard Dozier has a gift for putting words around perceptions, experiences, and memories that we've all had, but which we don't acknowledge, analyze, or admit appear in the words of Bernard's Bright Side commentary.
Someone has said, "The Bright Side is a different cup of water." It raises many issues--some that are touchy--concerning religion, consciousness, and spirituality, treating them with as much Truth as can be packed into a few short paragraphs.
The Bright Side brushes past negativity, but doesn't indulge in goody-goody positivity. Bernard Dozier's perspective of religion and institutional Christianity can be a delightfully contrarian one, and may seem, to literalists and materialists, to veer off from orthodoxy and logic, but it always comes full circle to the bright side--the spiritual reality side--where an ongoing Creation is firmly in the Christ control of a Creator who loves everyone with the same universal love.
