Quite often when we are shrouded in the clouds of darkness we feel that there is no ray of hope/light. Much to the contrary, light is always surrounding even the darkness and is only finding one small opening to pierce through the dense darkness. There cannot be darkness without light and hence light is always around us. Our ray of hope could be a person, situation, higher power, nature, love or a simple word of encouragement we receive. The key here is having that ‘opening’ or creating one to receive and make space for the light to enter. This is a choice we ought to make as humans.
