“We the people of this Society, think of the light being daytime and the dark being the nighttime”.
To truly know what I mean by the dark, you need not look any further than the nightly news, We see daily all the ugliness going on throughout the World, groups like ISIS, all terrorism whether over seas or here domestically, all the tragedies happening to us from the weather patterns and big storms, then there are others throughout Mankind simply killing others just because they didn’t like the way they looked? This is just tiny compared to all the other darkness, that is going on around us everyday.
Darkness is a lot more than the sun going down for the night sky, to see the stars in the sky at night are beautiful, but “when you see stars from the darkness, this is not the darkness anybody wants to see”. When you look through the history of Mankind, we all have been through many of dark times, ” true there is light at the end of the tunnel”, but to see that light through the darkness, we need to stay strong to ourselves, not only believe in ourselves, but truly believe in the Lord God and Jesus, so they can be our guiding light through the darkness and really see that light at the end of the tunnel.
When we turn on the daily news and see all the darkness around us, or even within our communities, this is enough for us to stay within ourselves, not reach out to those in need, put forth a piece of us that doesn’t really show who we really are, just to try to protect ourselves from this darkness. We then move forward while we numb ourselves from everything around us, but as the darkness around us turns into light and happier times and because we numbed ourselves from everything, we then don’t change cause now this darkest of times has brought us a new comfort level, when we get into a comfort zone, it is very difficult to change and get out of one zone and into another.
True change will always make us happier and more peaceful, as we walk our paths along our journey of life. We neglect any kind of change, simply cause we fear the unknown, just like we fear the terrorists cause we don’t know who or where they are around us, or if they will try something the next time I fly? True change goes deep within who really are, it is getting in touch with our true feelings and emotions, showing more empathy and compassion of ourselves, towards all those around us, true change is getting in touch with ourselves and knowing what makes us tick, when something happens to us we know is wrong, we then look at the long term decision of it before we actually act upon it, as we see in the nightly news, nobody thinks of their actions and how they will affect them down the road, instead they take action, then after the fact get into a reactive mode, which only multiplies the problem, instead of being proactive, think through the action before you take the action, so not only make our own lives better, but make better of those around you.
Even through the darkest of times, when you truly believe in yourself as well as God and Jesus, you will always see the light at the end of the tunnel, true we may have to sacrifice something we love, so we can truly change from what we were, to who we really are, we will have to change from being reactive to proactive on our journey of life, yes this change can be tough at times, it may try to make us doubt ourselves? But as we stay true to who we are, be more proactive with strong communications of everything around us, totally believe in God and Jesus, no matter what that may cross our paths, we will always see the light in the darkest of times. Throughout Mankind there is nobody that traveled their journey without seeing this darkness, you just have to stay true to yourself, believe in God and Jesus, so not only we throughout Society, but we ourselves can walk our paths along our journey of life peacefully and become better and stronger no matter what may come across our paths.
” True change makes us better at everything we do, without it we fall short of truly being true to ourselves”
” Even through the darkness the light can shine bright, belief in yourself along with God and Jesus, will never let the light become extinguished”
