In all the sadness

Updated on May 16, 2011

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’!

      Rossimobis, thank you! I agree completely...I also learned that light is NOT a train coming at us from the opposite direction, which is a good thing!

      "And then, we realize, all of a sudden, that in the very core of that tornado is utter calm and stillness".

      I believe in the above statement and always tell folks that there is a light at the end of every tunnel.

      You are right - there is a calm place in each of us if we can only reach out to it. Put the world and its problems aside and look inside ourselves; it is there and can be a wonderful place of relief and strength if we can but find it.

      I introduced my friend to your hub last night within a few hours while she thought things out she has found her calm center. Thank you for writing this wonderful hub.

      Wheel, you are so wise! She won't be able to have it "work" until she finds it for herself...keep in mind that "what you resist, persists" so all that fighting she is doing, will actually allow it to continue in a negative way...remind her that God can't put the gift in her hand until she unclenching her fists from fighting against what "is"...on the other side of the fight, there is peace. It may not be the picture she sees in her head about how she wants her life to turn out, but it is a path that contains peace, just going in a different direction from what she thought it would...it will all be okay and will work out just fine, trust me, tell her to just keep believing and to accept whatever is placed in front of her. New paths and new journeys are not all so bad...they bring great gifts! Thanks so much for reading and commenting, I really appreciate your thoughts! Blessings to you and your friend! You can send this hub to her, if you wish! ;)

      I have a friend right now who is in the swirling mess, she could sure use this hub. I feel like I am in the calm center trying to pull her in but so far its not working well. I Know it won't work until she finds her own calm center. She feels she is going to lose all that is near and dear to her and is fighting hard not to let that happen. Once she finds her center she will realize not all is lost no matter what happens.

      Great hub and timeless

      heart, Thank you! I know Joyce Meyers. I have turned my mess into a message, that is why I write on hubpages. As I mentioned to SilentReed, I am writing this piece because someone I love very much is going through some major issues. Thanks for reading my work, I appreciate your comments!

      I just heard a message from Joyce Meyers, saying...turn your mess, into your message! Turn your pain into gain:) There sure is some refining that happens to us, when we have been through the heartaches of life. Great writing:)

      SilentReed, that is very true...I am writing it because of some things that are happening to some people I love very much. It is way easier to deal with things if we can accept the growing part of it! Thanks for reading and commenting, I really appreciate it...:)

      Lessons in life sometimes cause us grief and sadness yet it is in these moments that we can find wisdom to help us grow and become a better person....if we accept it.
