Sitting in the dark
Silence is like sitting in the dark. After some time, the shadows and silhouettes become defined.
It is not the shadows that would have solidified. It is our eyes and perceptive ability that would have adjusted and sharpened.
I have watched my camera lens try to pick and clearly define my objects of interest to me. On auto zoom it will zoom in and out until it picks and defines with a crystal clearness the optimal image.
At times all we need to do to see the issues and matters ailing us is to sit the darkness out and let our perceptions deliver the true image to us.
We should not fear sitting in the dark, the dark does not define us.
The dark defies us , dares us to panic, make rushed decisions and up and run. Then the darkness would have won.
Sit out the darkness, get clear images, do not make decisions on hazy images. It will dawn to your eyes soon and you will be able to pick your way out of the maze without headbutting walls and tripping in the labyrinth.
