With our recommended solitude, many folks are lighting candles and even decorating with their Christmas lights to brighten their day. Candles and lights allow us to access the light and cheer. The miracle is that the darkness and fear of the virus allow us to create a shift in perception to light and love by bringing in candles and life. The breakdown becomes the break through. If we align thought with our potentiality of power, we can co-create a new reality with God.
That is it! I must recreate the reality of my past! I want so much to blame myself for my decades of pain and suffering – like I have my entire life. To punish myself through my addictions and negative self-talk and criticism. But the fall-apart is allowing me now to get out of my rut. To go into the light. To create the light!
This does not diminish my human experiences of heart break and pain. They were real, but the regret is over. I light a candle into my darkness! I create a new reality. Joy is not the opposite of sadness. The fall apart is the doorway. I embrace all of me, including my 14 heart breaks, into the journey of my soul! The light and evergreen remind me that the darkness is only a temporary season. The way out is through. Each step was me walking on my journey. My past is part of my journey! Every single step and heart break! Every ounce of pain and sadness. Reverend Michael said, “The deepest dark is the place where grace is reborn. Our perfection is not condition-based.” The choices that I made in my past that led to darkness and pain are not deserving of punishment! Just as my life achievements are not deserving of light and joy! God intended for good through me. Through my darkness. Let it be revealed!
Nobody promised life would be easy. Grab a cup of coffee, and we'll share the trials, tribulations and triumphs. Life's a little easier when you realize that others have gone before you.
