The death like grip clenches down on our wrist with a relentless steeliness. There rages a battle of darkness versus light, grief versus joy, death versus life. A version of ourselves pulls one way while another version pulls in the opposite direction. We are torn drifting between right and wrong. .
There is constantly a battle raging within us. A battle between known and the unknown, the past and the future, growth and stagnation, hope and despair. Whatever the battle we are fighting, there are always parts of us that pull in different directions. We are pulled either towards the light, the good and the joyful or towards the dark, the evil and the despair. We may not even realize one direction is darker than the other, but if we only open our eyes we will begin to see the corruption we face.
What are you struggling with? Where are you being divided? A house divided cannot stand the same goes for a person. If we are divided we will be easily swayed and manipulated. In our division there is a darker more evil side, its corrupting touch spreads the dark into our lighter side. We must pull free from its grasp and move towards the light. Find the courage and strength in your heart to pull from the dark grasp, the light calls to you.
What fight are you fighting?
One of the battles I often fight internally is the fight between past and present. I find myself getting lost in what has been and used to be. I lose my presence with the world I’m currently living in and fall into memories. I recently traveled to Oklahoma where I lived for 14 years and was immersed in the past, a changed past. Things had become different and the people weren’t the same. I discovered that things don’t happen the same way, things change and if we get stuck in the past the world will leave us behind. We must tear ourselves from who we used to be, we are not the past. We are our bright future. Look upon who we used to be with tenderness, but we are not them. We are a new being. Beautifully and wonderfully made.
