The Light is everywhere all the time…
There was a time when I thought like a young girl in a Grimm fairytale, awaiting my prince who would love me unconditionally to the neglect of his own self and safety. I soon woke up from this fantasy and realized that women, much less pretty than what I thought myself to be could be much more appealing than me to my love interest; simply because he already had me.
I realized that competition between females is not something that we do on our own, it is created from testosteronic greed and rabid, unenlightened appetites.
As dim as the situation seems, but as a result of it, I wrote my first song, Free because that is what I needed to be. Something catapulted me into finding the gear to record the song, getting the music, learning everything I could about production and marketing of my little song. As a result of the deep and intense darkness, the light that was in me, which would have never shone with me happy as a lark under the protection of a loving prince, gleamed through from the shadows of blackness…..but it had been in me all the time. It was driven out of me by the darkness.
Next came the book Broken Heart, which started as a journal for my own sanity and then I clearly realized that his spirituality was defunct and void (at least for me) so I began a search for my own, which led to The Mystic……and here we are 🙂
No. Darkness is not the absence of light. It IS unseen potential; a catalyst for greatness and glory; and evidence of light not yet revealed.
