Remembering the light when the dark comes along

  • Posted on October 11, 2011 at 5:43 pm

Sitting outside watching the clouds pass by the full moon I had a realisation about the experiences of life.

In our life we have the opportunity to experience both the light and the dark, for without the contrasting element one cannot experience the depth of their magnificence.

I was sitting looking at the moon and many clouds were passing by.  Most were thin or wispy and a good amount of the light from the moon was still shining through.  The light would wax and wane as clouds of differing density passed by, and each moment was a new experience as the clouds made evolving patterns across the face of the moon.

Then suddenly along came a space, a void, a sacred opportunity for the moon to shine it fullness of light directly to me, unencumbered.  I was touched to have the privilege to see the full beauty of the moon for those fleeting moments.  And then the moment was gone.

Obscured by a very dark cloud, completely blocking the light, for a moment I was worried that the moon was gone.  But in my heart I still remembered the light, the incandescence that the moon reflects and knew that this was simply my viewing perspective, in this moment.  I also knew that although I may not see the moon constantly shining towards me, I can hold its presence in my heart because of the depth of the connection I received during those intense fleeting moments where I saw its full brilliance.  And eventually those dark clouds will move on and I will once again be bathed in the light.

I see this as a metaphor for the experience I have just completed at Warrior Camp.  The staff and participants of T. Harv Eker’s Enlightened Warrior Training Camp created such a safe and empowering space for people to grow that I felt very comfortable in opening my heart, sharing my love and connecting deeply with those who journeyed through the week with me.

There was a moment of sadness when it came time to say goodbye, but I know that I carry the love of all these people in my heart, with me at all times, wherever I go.

It is fascinating to me just how deeply one can connect with others in such a short space of time.  I see it as being all about willingness, and the more willing one is to move past the fear, the quicker one builds compassion, trust and love for oneself and those around you.  It is never about the amount of time that is spent with a person that determines the level of connection, but rather your willingness to expose your heart and allow it to be touched by others.

A deep connection can occur in a fleeting moment, in connecting eye to eye, in sharing words from a song, in holding hands and receiving a heart-felt hug.

So I am feeling incredibly grateful to have experienced the depth of my power, and have embedded such sweet, sweet love within the core of my heart.
