#531 It takes darkness to be aware of the light


We all encounter darkness in our lives….it doesn’t matter when and how. It is probably an essential part of our existence because our “Journey”, if we have a journey, is all about moving through the Darkness into Light. So in that respect, I believe Darkness deserves to be written about and explored a little more. There are many textbook definitions about darkness like the most “googled” one is “Darkness, in contrast with brightness, is a relative absence of visible light”.  It is the appearance of black in a color space.”

Well no matter how we perceive darkness it, whether as an all-consuming force, a recurring heartache, a blanket of complete desolation or the mere absence of light…we know that Darkness exists and in a way it is only in Darkness that we can truly appreciate the Light…isn’t it???

 In this post, I use darkness as a metaphor, the darkness that dwells in all of us at some time……Darkness can be Anger, Insecurity, Jealousy, Resentment, Hatred, Self-Criticism, Self-Loathing, and most importantly Fear. To me Fear is the absolute darkness because it truly can paralyze us into believing things about ourselves that are so debilitating that it takes quite a while to get ourselves out of it. Now the reason I was so keen to write about Darkness is because I wanted to share what an important part of our journey it is because it is only when we are aware of the Darkness, can we move towards the Light.

I am sure that it is a known fact that the longer we have lived with any of the above mentioned emotions, the harder it is to get rid of it; however there is this one more critical aspect…..It takes a lot of love, guidance and gentleness to bring people out of their self-imposed judgements and opinions to help them see the light, to help them see how liberating it is to finally let go of the baggage that they have been carrying with them for so long. It indeed can be more exhausting and challenging than climbing the steepest mountain peaks. So if you talk to someone that is full of “Darkness”, try and help them see the light.
