Sometimes the pain isn’t enough. Sometimes you have to open yourself to a greater darkness. The darkness of truth.

Sometimes we need to ask ourselves a question in that darkness. When something doesn’t go away and keeps coming back…repeating itself over and over…we need to gently ask ourself:

“What do I need to know?”

Open our heart to the answer. Be with it for a while. And then let it go its own way.

Another day will dawn. Light will make everything new.
