There is no darkness, only light; we each have our own light source within. Change your vision to unblock that light. In a darkened space, positive thoughts renew the spirit, and bring forth a new outlook. I associate this with the way things look when one enters a darkened theater. For a moment the dark is all that can be seen, but once the eyes adjust to that environment; maneuvering becomes easier.
Sometimes we purposely close out the light. We find it is easier to remain in our downhearted or darkened state of mind. But if we think about it, many of us know that grief, roadblocks, or misfortune sometimes illuminate a path we never thought we’d travel. That light, though blinding for a moment, often guides us to an inner strength that had not been revealed before. That has been my personal experience.
Even if the path is obscure, keep moving forward. Adjust your vision as you go and keep your thoughts positive–you’re headed toward greater.
I marvel at how much light can be obtained from a bleak situation. For me, allowing my thoughts to carry me away from a downhearted state of mind triggers that light. At that moment, the choice is mine–with a renewed vision, I move forward.
Choose to see the light; it will guide you.
