In all the sadness
In all the sadness inside our hearts and all the sadness we feel - somewhere, deep inside, is a bright Light.
There is so much devastation in the hearts of those who are constantly beaten down. There is so much pain and unconsciously-chosen suffering that keeps us stuck in our misery.
There is so much confusion, misunderstanding, and anger towards circumstances – all swelling out of proportion, due to the fear we feel. Fear about unknown outcomes, fear about past events and their outcomes being perpetrated again and again in our current situation. In truth, the outcome can never be exactly the same because this is not exactly the same incident as the one in the past. These are not the exact people as the ones in the past.
Sadness is overwhelming sometimes, so much, that it seems as if nothing will ever improve. It seems like the cycle will continue and we will never rise above that feeling of being sucked into the middle of a swirling tornado. And then, we realize, all of a sudden, that in the very core of that tornado is utter calm and stillness.
This is a scientific discovery, it really is. In the middle of a tornado, it is totally still. Everything around the core is insane and going crazy, swirling about in sublime madness, but the core isn’t.
If only we could see our core, our spirit, our “being-ness”, our strength, in the middle of all the madness surrounding us, we would realize that we can rise above it. We would realize that we are stronger than any storm that comes our way. We would realize that somehow, in the perfectly chosen time, we will have a better life, a more peaceful existence, a most positive outcome. That truth of Who We Truly Are will never be denied. And so shall it be, if we so choose. It’s all up to us and what we decide about how our life’s journey shall go. Namaste’!
