Sometimes we have such dark nights where the clouds shroud the moon’s guiding light.
We have only enough light to see where our one step lands.
We might call out to the sky to give us light, and yet we have a while to walk still, not knowing when the dawn will come.
Sometimes this feels to be the most unending time, the most barren and seemingly unkind.
Yet we realise with the dawn, as it will always arise,
that we needed that darkness to grow our strength inside.
To grow our love inside.
To grow our care for our self and our step.
We realise that without the darkness we would have missed the glow worms, the owl’s call and the magic of the night.
We can see with the blessing of hindsight that every moment of life has been designed to bring out our brightest light from inside.
We can say thank you and I am grateful, that even though I cannot see, I can trust that what I am receiving is the best thing for my soul making right now.
