What does your heart hold on to? What keeps you going, encourages you to take the road less traveled? Where do you feel that feeling of expansion, yet centered at the same time?
Some call it home, or community, some say faith, most of us would say love.
The base is can be that, but how to enter that state of mind of peace, contentment, the belief that all is good? How to be there and eventually share it when the road ahead is a dead end, or what we held true- falters, how do we stay true to the beauty of ourselves in times of darkness?
Lately, some friends of mine have struggled with depression, despair and others grave illness. I have listened, and prayed with them. But it is their courage to continue to fight the feeling of hopelessness, their ability to speak such wisdom when nothing around them encourages it, to find peace and take hold without fail, that makes me ask the above and stand in awe of the message they share even we they are hurting.
It is as if they have been pushed off a cliff and yet they fly.
And so I ask how do some find wings and others do not?
I think it comes to the day to day choices, to see through the message of the current moment to focus of the truth of love. We are beautiful, deserving of happiness, and have the source of light within us.
What do you say/do when the darkness tries to sip in?
