To reach that goal? To finish that task? To finally be able to sit down and rest?
I thought you'd say that. We all seem to be waiting for the proverbial light....
Here's a pic I snapped as I drove through a beautiful tunnel last week. The underpass was dark and the way unsure. Curvy. A little dangerous. Lanes I'd never traveled. Darkness I'd never seen. It wasn't until I caught a glimpse of the bright light shining into the end of my spiraling path that a calmness and relief washed over me. Finally! I'm out of this uncertainty. There is hope. I see the light!
Last year I thought a lot about the concept of the Present. Living in the Present. Being in the Present. If I wait until I see the end before I can be "happy" then I've missed the whole point - learning to abide in peace during even the darkest of times really is the point of peace.
The path I'm currently on requires that I postpone my view, curtail my anticipation
and just drive.
even if there's darkness
even if there's danger
even if I'm afraid
I don't want to be somebody's light at the end of the tunnel.
I want to be the light in the tunnel.
