Many focus their energy trying to help others
Leaving themselves drained, unhappy and frustrated
They do not realize that you can not give by throwing
By forcing your beliefs on others you fall off your path and push others away from you
Just focus your energy on becoming the best version of yourself
Those who are lost in the darkness will see your light shining
It’s up to them if they want to walk along the side of you or to stay on their path
Through the darkness, we shall rise
Rise like the sun
Bringing light into the darkness
For we are all holy men & women
Lost in the sea of fear
We have forgotten our true nature
Of compassion & love
We are disoriented by distraction
Haunted by our past
Paralyzed by the path unknown ahead of us
We cling to material wealth & status
Fearful to take risks for the true life we desire
So how do we begin this journey?
The answer lies within you
The darkness surrounds me.
Fear consuming every thought.
Anger pulsating through every cell.
Hatred burning into my soul.
Greed filling up my mind.
Do I resist the darkness?
Do I suppress these dark emotions?
I will accept the darkness.
I will honor the greed, anger, hatred, and fear inside me as part of who I am.
But I vow to shine light into the darkness of my soul.
The light of love.
The light of kindness.
The light of compassion.
The light of forgiveness.
I will show the darkness another way.
On a dark & stormy night, a lost ship sees a lighthouse in the distance.
The sailors can barely see the light at first, for the light is blinded by dark clouds surrounding the ship. They slowly begin their journey to shore.
The lighthouse does not judge the sailors lost at sea.
The lighthouse does not force the lost ship to shore.
The lighthouse just keeps shedding its light in order for others to see out of the darkness.
Do not bend to strong winds.
Do not worry about powerful waves.
Do not sink into the ocean of darkness.
Focus your energy on making your light stronger and clearer.
The stronger the light, the better those lost will be able to see the shore.
Be confident. Be patient.
Allow them to make the long and challenging voyage to shore.
Become the lighthouse.
Become the light for others to see out of the darkness.
But first, you must acknowledge the lighthouse within your heart.
The light within your true nature.
