Seeing Through the Foggy Unknown
Updated: Oct 18
The sun is always shining even when dark clouds get in the way. The day of my podcast with Rick Bernstein, was truly a dark and gloomy day with cold drizzle falling in South Dakota. Even a thick fog covered the area, yet despite this gloomy appearance, we had a significant conversation, with shining moments in every topic. This is a perfect analogy in life when dark clouds of seeming obstacles and distraction fill your mind. We always have access to a higher force greater than ourselves. It is that invisible intangible force we can draw on at any moment, if we only dive into ourselves on a deeper octave, and accept the mystery of the unknown, and perhaps a new perspective, a ray of light. The internal eyes need only to adjust… like an owl in flight at night.
I first realized this phenomenon twenty years ago, when I was sitting in an airplane enroute to Santa Barbara, CA, from dark and gloomy Chicago in the depth of winter. Shortly after takeoff, the airplane suddenly burst through the dark clouds, and Shazam!, there it was, a clear blue sky and a golden sun that filled my senses with delight. We are connected to this Light in the same way! The Light is always within us, despite any obstacles that arise. Sometimes we need a gentle reminder…"The darkest hour is just before the dawn.”
In Italian, the literal translation of “to give birth”— “Dare alla Luce”— is: “to give to the light”. An exquisite phrase to describe the beauty and wonder of childbirth. The unborn baby is in the dark tunnel of the womb, and then, when born, comes out of the dark and into the light!
