“The light at the end of the tunnel is not an illusion. The tunnel is.” Unknown
Many of us live our lives as though we are in a tunnel. We’re slogging through – whatever the ‘tunnel’ is for us – to get to the other side – to the light – to be happy.
What we don’t realize is that We are the Light. Our happiness isn’t dependent upon getting to the other side! Our happiness is dependent upon our decision to be happy – no matter what tunnel we’re in – no matter what adversity we’re facing.
Everyone has ‘tunnels’ to go through; Divorce, Unemployment, Death, Parenting Challenges, Financial issues, Health problems, etc.
We think we need to go through these alone – we don’t want to burden others with our problems and we convince ourselves that we’d be better off dealing with things on our own. We don’t want to pull anyone into our ‘dark caves’.
There will always be tunnels to go through. There will be times of darkness and feelings like we’re living upon tectonic plates. The key to living a balanced life is recognizing that all we have to do to balance the darkness …. is to shine our own Light. And many times we’ll find that once we look around we see we’re not alone. There are many others on the same path.
Because life isn’t a destination – it isn’t the ‘Light at the end of the Tunnel’. It’s a journey and what makes it worthwhile is enjoying the ride with others. So don’t wait until you get to the ‘light’ to live that balanced life.
At any time – at Every Time – you can call the Light to you:
T= Troops – surrounding yourself with support
Shine the way for yourself, for those around you, and dissolve the ‘Illusion’.
