We never really understand the saying “the dark before the storm” unless we allow ourself to bear witness to experiencing what that really means.
I think the best answer I can give up to this point is that for everything good and true, the opposite exists as an illusion (for truth cannot be in flux and is at the center of all things good, whole, and complete.).
This is not so much a choice but more so a reminder that somewhere/somehow there has been some dreamt detour from what is good and true and, boy/girl, some growth is about to happen!
But for that growth to happen, there MUST be a stimulus that initiates the dive into discovering truth for oneSelf rather than it being doctrinated by another’s interpretation of it .
Very often, or I should say most likely, this knocks on our life’s door as some type of strife or intense obstacle.
When this so called opposite is dreamt up and therefore “experienced”, there is a sleepwalk away from truth and this temporary season is the series of learning lessons that bring us to that inevitable waking moment.
This can be a long painful journey and it takes a lot of work, patience, self nuturing, self guidance, and intuition.
But without fail these growing pains strengthen our inner constitution and complete our connection to who we are and where we come from.
Yes it hurts.
It hurts so bad that it’s good.
The more difficult the journey, the stronger we become.
So when that dark hour sneaks in, it is worthy to greet it with gentle gratitude as it is holding our hand and walking us straight to our own awakening.
There is no escape and fear is fruitless.
But our glorious metamorphosis is inevitable as long as we are willing to believe that the truth will indeed set us free.
