Weep You Must, It Purifies.

Updated on October 20, 2017

As Darkness Fell

There was this blind lady who played the piano. It was her love for music that gave her the fortitude and dedication to learn playing. She can't read the notes of course, but her gift for listening was superb. She could not see but her hearing is amplified more than the usual ordinary person with sight. Whatever she lack, her ears adapted 10-fold. She played in harmony with the notes as she stroke the keys.

One night, a family friend visited and was so inspired by this blind lady, that he offered to play a piece for her. As darkness fell, the lone candle that lighted the place gone out. There was total darkness in the blind lady's home, yet music played continually.

Who can say that even in our darkest moments, we see a streak of light? Yes we get depressed and the "let-down" feeling of hopelessness engulfs us. To experience "aloness" and "misery" are overwhelming, yet, there will always be something or someone to spur inspiration in us.

Days We Ate Darkness

Our deepest sorrow and anguish will purify our empty souls after all the weeping. We all experience our "dark nights" and in my personal experience of my painful past, there was always a subconscious thought deep down that whispers, "all will be well." So I cried on, allowing my heart to find that inner child in me.. until in weariness I sob myself to sleep.

Many times I ponder, how can our deepest sorrow purify?

It cleanses. It unburdens.

I believe in new mornings. In sunrises and afresh tomorrows. As always, renewal takes place. There is one quote I hold close, "For us to see a rainbow, one must endure some rain." Endurance is key. It is the staying power of one's stamina, without giving way to unpleasant or difficult situations.

"All their days they eat in darkness, with great frustration, affliction and anger."_Ecclesiastes 5:17.

Moonlight Sonata

The visitor who was inspired by the blind lady in my story was no other than, Ludwig van Bethooven.

German composer Ludwig van Beethoven is considered one of the most important figures in the history of music. He continued to compose even while losing his hearing and created some of his greatest works after becoming totally deaf.

As darkness fell, Beethoven was so stirred by the atmosphere in the room with only the beam of a full-moon-lit streak, he was able to compose his acclaimed "Moonlight Sonata."

Ludwig van Beethoven

"Put a song in my heart, a song of gratitude and love."
"Put a song in my heart, a song of gratitude and love."
