Wisdom from Faith Davis

Life is full of light and darkness – in every moment you have a choice as to which force you will add to.

When you walk into a dark room, you turn on a light so you can see. In the same way, you can turn on your inner light to reduce or eliminate the non-physical darkness around you.

When you need to drive somewhere at night, you turn your headlights on to light your way. Similarly, you can learn to let your inner guidance lead you.

Darkness exists in selfishness, rage and sadness. It exists in sickness, mean-heartedness and cold attitudes. It is the outcome that occurs when we aren’t nurturing our innate spirituality, when we are taking things for granted and when we are too busy chasing the “things” we want, all the while missing the important things and people we already have.

Now is when we should take the time to bring lightness inward so we can shine it outward. Until it is within us, we cannot make a real contribution to the world. It is by letting our light shine bright that we increase the brightness of the planet.

Darkness and light are opposite forces, so to reduce or eliminate the darkness in our lives, it becomes necessary to bring in more light….Continue reading at InspireMeToday.com.

don't want to eliminate the dark side. Yin and yang...the 2 parts need to interconnected to each other.

Remaining optimistic is sometimes difficult to do, however it is so important to harness inner peace and contentment which leads to happiness.

I suffer from depression and find myself in the dark far to often. I have learned to fight this with some of the silliest things, most laugh inducing things i could think up. I have a wild imagination. So when I find myself in a situation threatening to bring on anger which can bring on a rage and ultimately lead down the rabbit hole, I tend to find some way to make the situation funny. God help me I can make just about any thing out to be funny. Nothing is sacred. I also like to make other people happy and will stop a stranger and say hello and how are you and really mean it. If they look down I will really want them to smile. Because I know how that feels it will hurt me too if they are sad. So do go and light up the darkness and maybe infuse it with humour if you are not the spiritual type. It will still make a difference.

Happy thoughts make happy people, angry thoughts make angry people... choose the thoughts that make you happy, or feel better. Come out of the dark by choosing a better thought :) By staying in anger or rage we create more anger, let it go, not for anyone else. Let it go for YOU!

From a center of love all things are possible. We each have personal gifts, some of which may have been covered over the years, but this is a new year. May we all find our personal best.

Good advice. Trying to remember that this is all what we make of it is a tough assignment - but the world changes before your eyes if you can remember that.

Thank you for the post. Personally, when I get cut off on the road, what I do, is to try my best to remember that I do no know what kind of day or what kind of pressure that that driver is under.
