“Learn to walk in the darkness of life, so you can be the light.” -Yogi Bhajan
This quote was shared at the end of last week, after 15+ hours of meditation, and it all clicked. Staring into the infinite eyes of my meditation buddy, who sat across from me like a mirror, my mind and heart opened.
What I know is, this world needs light.
We need to break down the walls we walk around with. I needed to remember we are here to have this experience together. And that it is way more fun to live that way.
We are here for each other. To look in each other’s eyes. To celebrate each others victories, and with that, create a more victorious planet. To dance with each other. Share with each other. Listen to each other. All in an effort to lift each other up.
We are here to serve, and realize we are all the same. Realize we are one.
So, how do I continue to learn to walk in the darkness of life?
You go within. You open your eyes to the shadows, and rather than hiding there, you have the courage to open up, to share. You sweep out the cobwebs, you release release release, and you begin to let your light shine out. Come back to cultivating the strength of your spirit. So that when you are in the middle of chaos, and as the world continues to speed up, you are a steady guiding light. We help others to feel they are not lost, and we will not feel lost yourself. We look into their eyes, take their hand, and start to build a world where there is no hiding, and we are seen as one.
To learn to walk in the darkness, and be the light, is to contain my clarity within, so that I can see out, even when there is no light. Especially when their is no light.
Yoga has shown me that my/our life potential is uncapped. It’s allowed my intuition to guide me, so that I can see the magic in the humans all around me—not their darkness, but their light. And see that they are the same as me. See that we are one.
I am she, as you are she, as you are me, and we are all together.
You know who said it first? The Beatles. They always knew what was up. ☺️
