Dark always becomes light

Now, in the northern hemisphere, every day is getting a little lighter each day and, in the southern hemisphere, the opposite is happening, each day is getting a little darker.

It then swaps.

So? you might say.

It is the Yin and Yang of everything in the universe, in nature, in life…it has to have an opposite.

Light does not exist without dark, tall without short, big without small, love without fear and so on.

So no matter what is happening in life, there will always be change, it always passes, and everything is temporary. The only thing that is eternal is this present moment, now.

If we welcome the ‘bad’ we can then enjoy the ‘good’. If we fear the ‘bad’ we strangely do not enjoy the ‘good’ as we live in constant fear.

If we welcome all, we accept all and we live in peace.

Patience allows growth

No matter how awake we think we are, how enlightened, how conscious…we all are human, we all get controlled by our mind, our ego, we become the reaction, we become the emotion.

It’s OK, it’s a lifetime of conditioning that we are trying to unravel.

However, when it impacts on others and we are aware of it, then a sorry, a hug and an explanation of our behaviour always helps.

Enlightenment and spiritualism are not about being superior, that is yet another ego and story, it is about being aware and taking things lightly, accepting what is and that includes accepting ourselves and what we are and that we will behave in ways that contradict that.

When we give that space and allow it to be, it resolves itself and goes away. When we resist anything, it only expands and deepens…it won’t go away all the time we resist.

Patience allows growth.
