Darkness Into Light
Posted 21 January 2012 - 06:14 AM
Many years ago, during a very dark time - after my sister's betrayal and after my friend was tortured and slain, I hit my lowest point... the only time I contemplated ending my life - I was 17 at the time.... I ran away, and tumbled onto a train track... I could hear the train in the distance and was waiting for the inevitable...this is a path I have and will never walk down again.
Then a voice clear as day said to me "Go home"
To this day, I do not know where this voice came from or why it even cared about me... but, I did, I went home - got home bleeding and bruised, a broken person in the physical, mental and spiritual sense.
Then something started to change - I became stronger each day, even when the darkness returned, I got stronger.
I did not just survive, I started to live.
It is amazing how strong we can be, often when we have no other choice (my favourite saying)

I'm not sure how to answer your question, it is quite complicated. I think whether or not you can rise above tragedy and still find grace in this life depends on the type of person you are, and the choices you make.
However, sometimes we are helped by the divine, and I believe this is what you have experienced. Once you have felt that touch of light in your soul, it changes you for the better. All one can do afterward is help spread that light to others who need it.
I am glad to know you heard that voice, and listened to it.

I have never really seen myself as courageous, but rather as a person who is following this path due to not having any other choice = I have faced the alternative and never will go there again.
