The Shadow and the Light


You look around and everywhere you look there is a darkness like a Shadow…you move to the right…Shadow…you move forward swiftly to try to get past it…more Shadow.  You look behind you…Shadow.  No matter what you do or where you go in this life the Shadow is always with you.

You spend so much time in your life looking for a better way…to get away from this Shadow but even when we begin to think we lost it or begin to believe it is gone you realize it is still with you and it really never left.

Many of us spend our entire life trying to get away from this Shadow and then at the end of our life…in our final days…we begin to see…a Light.  We have seen light in the past but this is different…this Light has a comforting sensation…as this Light brightens you begin to notice the silhouette of a person standing next to you…the longer you look the more you begin to realize that the Shadow that has been with you for your entire life is being cast by this figure right by your side.  You also now realize that this Shadow is not to be feared or ignored it is being provided to guide and support you on your journey.

Embrace the Shadow in your life that is being provided to protect you while you live in this world…because that Shadow is your guide to see everlasting Light.
