I am reminded again and again of something on my daily walk through life. The darkness and disconnect is all a symptom of my action. On days that I feel lonely and apart from the world its usually not because I am not surrounded by people.
It is like I am in a dark room holding a lamp in one hand and the plug in the other hand. The room is pitch black but I remember where the outlet is. I know it is on the wall near where I am standing.
I also know that apart from one another the plug and the outlet have no significance and that they will not come together on their own.
So, my only job when trying to get back to the light is to connect the source of light with the outlet. I must be willing to take action and plugin.
It is like this with life. I can sit in the dark recesses of my mind feeling sad thinking that there is no light and beginning to believe that there never was light.
Or, I can take the simple action of searching for the source of power and plugging into it.
It is my choice whether or not I take the action, but it is also a choice to not believe the darkness is the only thing that exists.
I have to remember where I am standing and the light that is inside of me, in this case the lamp that I hold, and move towards the source of power.
I simply mean that when we are stuck in a dark place remember the light that you hold, then move your butt and plug it into the source of power. Connecting to other people and a higher power is it.
When you are disconnected remember that the light socket will not accidentally find the plug. Get up and go find it. Get plugged in and live in the beauty of the light.
