Truth in Enlightenment

I saw a quote yesterday.

"The Brighter the Light, the Darker the Shadow."

The quote hit home. 

With Enlightenment comes with the reality that you will have tough times as well. It doesn't matter how pure, how much meditation and prayer.  You WILL hit your lows.

For me, I can get nasty with others, family, friends, and that truly contradicts the entire, "Kimmy Sharing Light" focus.

If I manage not to take out my darkness on others at that time, for sure I will beat myself up in some way.

It was ironic yesterday, that I saw this quote during on of my darkest moments. I had family over, so I decided to just tackle the moment and cry. After a few hours I made a decision that my life was not worth living. Again with the dark shadow taking over. I was angry at myself, I was angry at others, and to pull myself out of it I chose music that fit the mood.

Disturbed
Shinedown
Iron Madien
The Who
Metallica

I chose some angry music to pacify the darkness. 

I know people are of the opinion that you have to stay positive, and always happy, and pure. That doesn't work for me. I have to acknowledge my emotions that I am feeling at the time, if I would like it to pass.

Kimmy Sharing Light is a reflection and combination of who I aspire to be. With Awareness of one's self, you have to be aware you WILL also have dark days.  Find what helps you through rather than push it down.

I am in a better place today, awake, and have a calmness about me.  I am not sure what today will bring. However, I know it will be truth. 

Sharing light with Kimmy. Striving to create a path between the present course of events and a new course; leading to new outcomes.

  1. Hi Kimmy, I am so feeling the same way lately with everything that is going on with me, it is so hard to hold onto that light, so days I just want to go check myself in for two weeks and escape the struggles I am facing everyday now, but music does help me too. I find myself changing issues on my blogs too, you can't help but go with the flo, it's just life and you continue to inspire me even in the darkest of moments because I know I am not alone. Hang in there we all have those days and being in touch with our real feelings makes us only stronger for the next round.
    Much Love and Light to you Kim,
    Forever your friend
    Janet :)

  2. Thank you for being real, and validating that it is ok to have these things called feelings. And thank you for your honesty about your own lows. You allow other enlightened people to be so honest too.

    First, thanks for checking out my blog. Second, LOVING yours. Especially that I have a rainbow cursor when I'm on your page.

    I am very much the same in choosing music to match my mood. I think if you push down those feelings to get to happy, you'll never really make it. You have to climb the mountain because burying it is impossible.

    I'll continue to check out your blog. Great stuff!

  7. One has to learn to live with one's feelings the way one lives with the weather. They're a reality, so one might as well accept and handle them as you do.
