In a strange way the darkness can be a gift. It is a window into suffering that is needed in order to truly empathize with others who suffer. Experiencing the dark actually turned a light on in my heart. It awakened me. It heightened my awareness and helped me see things I might not have otherwise seen. It made me want to shine a light for someone else. When we see the light and then turn a light on for someone else, it isn’t long before the darkness disappears.
