Joining the Light often leads us through the darkness first.

Life is often fraught with setbacks and the last thing most of us want to hear or think about when we are dealing with profound feelings of sadness is that deep learning can be found in this place. And how can you explain to someone who is grieving the loss of their loved one, or who has lost everything they own that in the midst of our pain of our overwhelming loss, to look for anything resembling a bright side to our suffering. Still, somewhere in our hearts we know that we will eventually emerge from the depths into the light of greater awareness. Remembering this truth, no matter how hard this seems, can help.

The other thing we often would rather not hear when we are dealing with intense sadness is that the only way out of it is through it. Dealing with our sadness takes the courage to believe that we can come through it to a brighter place.

Sadness and compassion are great teachers and through the Chaos and grieving processes of experience it often offers us the gift that at first we cannot see for the many tears we shed.

Many are shedding tears in the wake of Hurricane Sandy… this storm like many other violent storm that has raged across our planet through out time taking lives and homes leaves one asking the questions of why, as many awake to the Might of Mother Nature.

My heart goes out to all who are suffering and grieving after this huge storm and who are now trying to piece their lives back together.

Sadness is something we all go through, and each of us learn through our own individual experiences of sadness, which carry their own unique lessons, the implications of what we learn are universal.

Compassion for others who are suffering is one of those lessons and its only by going through our own pain we can understand and allow for someone else’s.

We gain much wisdom from going through the process of feeling loss, heartbreak and deep wounds.. each experience gives us access to the heart of humanity.. In the great symphony of life, we all have important parts to play. Now more than ever we need to use that instrument, our hearts, to build harmony within our world. 

Anything we do begrudgingly limits the flow of our energy and closes us off from the good that is available to us in every situation. But by giving the best in us to make the world around us better, we open ourselves to receive the best from the universe in return.

Our Earth Mother is showing us we need to pool that Compassion,helping us to open up our hearts to each other as we build those bridges of separateness to understand we are all one, and now is the time for humanity to pull together as One.   We are being shown we need to care and open our hearts in helping one another….We need to join together in  Light and Love ..

Joining The Light

The shafts of Light filter through my mind

Helping me see, illuminating the clouds of dark I find.

They shimmer and dance before my eyes

Cutting out the echoes of Human Cries

They shed their beam of truth

Lighting up the corridors of Time

As a knowing surrounds me, for I travel along its Ray

Listening and absorbing in all it has to say

It heals with its warmth,

As its colours reflect the prisms of thought.

Rainbows of light surround me, illuminating where shadows are naught

I ride upon it thread, as it takes me out from my shackled shell

Floating now in a sea of pure love

Forever here I wish to dwell

No Body,

No Time,

Just endless Peace,

What sweet release

I Dedicate my poem to all those affected and  who have lost loved ones in  Hurricane Sandy ..

    I know people who have homes in southern NJ. They have no idea what condition their homes are in, or even whether they’re still standing. The lack on ability to communicate is the most frustrating part of this situation.

      I can only imagine their frustration Ronnie, We have become so accustomed to our communication devices and Electricity, Those whom I connect with in the World of Spirit have been saying to me for some years now that we should not under estimate the power of Nature and we have for so now been oblivious to her might until she hits home hard.. I feel mankind will have to get used to many more huge storms upon this scale as our Planet goes through the changes needed to get us all back in Balance with what is the most important aspects of our experience here…Love and Oneness…

    A beautiful poem and post you share, your courage and embracing of the darkness and the gifts of light it brings are inspiration to many and brings a great smile to my soul. Thank you Sue for truly being you and sharing the loving energy that comes from within. You are a light for many on the path to unconditional love and the light of our Creator and the love of creation.

      Bless you for saying so my friend, But I am only one among many who see Change and understand that it is at times the rough road we travel in order to see the light. Without our own experiences of trauma and understanding loss and pain, we cannot begin to feel the compassion others go through.. Each of us have been in a dark place at one time or another, and without the darkness when would we know it was ‘light’? we need both in order to experience each of them.. One cannot exist without the other… Such is the Nature of the Universe.. we have to have opposites for we live in duality, experiencing both Negative and Positive.. Both Energy, Its a matter of which energy we wish to gravitate towards… for Like attracts like.. In order to experience Love, we also have to understand its opposite… The time is upon us when we are now being made more aware that we are so much more than our human form. And such tests such as these will teach us so much more about our resolve and strengths .. Blessings to you ~Sue

    Very nice post, Sue.
    A quote that keeps cropping up for me at the moment came to mind as I read your post, one of Winston Churchill’s: If you’re going through Hell, keep going.
    We can be resourceful and strong when we need to be, which is comforting to know especially as we head through the darkness.

      You are right Tom, yes, we are more resourceful than we give ourselves credit for. We have become so reliant upon external aids throughout our progression through the age of technology both in communication devices and electrical equipment, and have forgotten how to rely upon ourselves and our instincts. So we can I think feel as if we are going through hell when such disasters occur… But I know that its only by being tested to the limits that we are also shown just how courageous we are and our strengths of pulling together as one will once again come to the fore. For along the way of living in this modern age where our neighbours have become strangers.. Such disasters such as this always pulls people together, closer, and they then come together stonger as a community helping and caring for each other… Something I fear that has been lost along the way as we got so caught up with our lives and living to gather together ‘Things’… Things which now for many have been swept away… Which again is another Lesson as we are taught to let go within our material world we have put so much emphasis on .. As we see the real value and that is Life itself!…

      Hi Christine, yes we are all connected more than we understand, And for those who can do nothing but send their thoughts and prayers then we need to send out love and compassion to uplift and strengthen whole communities into becoming One with one another.. The way forward is in love, not fear and greed.. Once we can all understand that message we help the whole world become balanced as we learn to live from our hearts again.. Thank you for adding your thoughts xxx

      Hi Art, that makes two then Art for I always love your own enlightening posts my friend, Yes as I have stated in previous answers to comments upon this page, we have come along way in the last 50 years if you think in terms of technology and communication throughout the world.. And yet along the way we have built up so many more barriers of distrust and ownership as greed has overtaken the hearts of many.. In the ‘I Haves’ over the ‘Have nots’ in this world. Profits come before people in many work places around the globe, Compassion and unity is needed now to bring hearts together again.. We may have progressed in some ways, but our spiritual progression still has some way to go.. unfortunately it is at times by only experiencing such chaos as this that we find our hearts once again in one another as we join together in helping each other…
      many thanks Art xx

    As always DW, great post and your poem was well done! It is always so much easier to realize you must go through the pain and look for the good when you aren’t in the middle of the tragedy…I wish it were more accessible during the crisis though. We get washed away by the grief and good sense seems to leave us temporarily. Hopefully we will learn soon. I mentioned in my post yesterday that the people I see being interviewed on TV in New Jersey who seem to be holding up well are the ones that have been able to release their loss and see great hope for tomorrow. This is such a testament to what we are all trying to grasp and learn about not holding on and going with the flow. I know they are all hurting deeply and all we can do is send prayers and love and envision them receiving the message to release and let God…Thanks DW. Happy weekending! VK

      Yes a agree VK, letting go and learning to start anew is something we are all trying to achieve all be it spiritually.. But when you see those who have grasped the lesson and through their own hurting understand that tomorrow will be a better day and one which will be filled with hope is a truly remarkable testament to going with the flow of consciousness, considering what they have endured.. My thoughts especially go to those who have lost family and loved ones, But My thoughts as I know you send out your own, go along way in helping the healing process as our energy helps lift those caught in the depressive wave of loss and despair.. I will be around later for a catch up my friend.. Wishing you a peaceful weekend also DW xx

    An excellent poem, Sue – and your dedication : I didn’t know people had lost loved ones. I hope the number isn’t high. It’s frightening when nature has a rage.

    I did know the subway is under water & I just can’t help thinking of the mayhem, trying to get to work. Thank God for all I have.

    I’d hate to lose all my photos & videos of Daniel in his early life, my diaries….. imagine dropping all that & starting anew? That would be like having a whole different life, to me – like a memory being wiped (physically).

      For many that is what it has been like, they lost everything even loved ones, and that I think is part of the process as we learn to LET GO of our Material ‘stuff’.. Letting Go of the wounds and hurts is much harder, but its all part of growing and moving forward at this moment within the energies of the world.. Yes I think its near on 90 souls lost in USA and around the same number in the Caribbean also where the storm hit, but news coverage of their plight hasnt been so publicised as NY and NJ The Election in the USA is now taking off again..

        burns brightly the fires of today’s passion for all to see

      Thank you Cha… I wrote this poem a while back after a meditation in which I felt I was being swept up into another dimension, It made me think of what it would be like when we pass into that other realm of existence, and I am told from those who have passed over its a beautiful experience. So I envisaged the light as rainbow prisms as they surrounded me in my meditation and the words of the poem are the result.. They came just as effortlessly too, as most of my inspired poems do.. I know if I labour over a poem, Its ME that is trying to form the words, and not those who wish to imprint their words via my mind.. So I am always grateful when my poems receive such a wow factor, because I know they touched who they were meant to touch.. 🙂 And Im eternally grateful to pass on their messages from Spirit side.. 🙂 Hugs and have a brilliant week Cha..

      Loosing loved ones and family in any disaster is the worst possible Loss .. Possessions can be replaced, People cant… Learning to let go of the material things is hard, but its a lesson that teaches us many things… We come with nothing and we leave with nothing and spend a whole lot of time worrying about keeping what we have after working so hard to attain it….When really what we should all be working hard upon is the memories we make, the love that we give and the gifts we have been Given that often we take so for granted.. Such as the our health, our family and just being able to see, feel, and be happy..For when one of those are taken.. No amount of money we have saved or possessions we have gathered will replace them..
