As I walk these roads full of struggle and pain
I look to my left and I see a friend fighting for her life
And I look to my right and I see hungry children
And the fear rises like a fog that blankets a warm pond
And I know that now perhaps more than ever before
I have to keep my energy clean
I have to lean to the side where light enters and illuminates all that is good
And while I can be aware of the darkness
While I can empathize with the pain
I can not add to it
Light and dark…
I have more experience with the dark, but I much prefer the light. It is so easy to go back in the rabbit hole and be consumed with the pain before you even realize that you’ve fallen.
Awareness. The key is awareness. We are responsible for one thing and one thing only. It is not to sit in judgment of everything “out there,” but rather to sit in awareness of everything that is internal…everything central to our individual thoughts which make up our personalities; govern our actions; determine our reality.
These are trying times that will test a human’s resolve and in the end determine the direction of our lives by the collective energy we impart to our world.
