You can light up the dark
The first part of my life I have been facing a lot of pain and fears by going through all kinds of life experiences
Some may say this was karma or my own creation
To me it felt as my path of learning about our human experience of emotions, deep emotions
The personal experiences and the pains or fears that came along with it.
Seemed only a trigger to dive deep(er) into our human emotions.
Layers of pain, embedded in our memory cells
It took some practice to be able to stay grounded in the midst of all of this darkness
To hold these emotions with love instead of being consumed by them
Which of course happened in the beginning
Although there was always some sort of guidance and knowing I would be ok
Which to me has felt like a blessing
For I do not know if I would have been able to go that deep without
My journey has softened my heart, silenced my mind, strengthened my body and grew my compassion
It has made my wish to serve and spread the light stronger
For in the midst of the darkness I experienced how even a small spark of light
Can light up the darkness, our pain or grief.
