In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, a beautiful understanding was presented to me.
I was reading a comment by Barbara on Amy’s lovely Blog. Amy had posted her most recent amazing pictures of autumn colors and how they contrasted so beautifully with such a grey, wet day. And though it was a difficult journey to get these images on such a day…to Amy it was worth every step. Then Barbara came along and mention those contrasts as well. Even I and Dan mentioned those contrasts.
But Barbara’s words in her comment knocked me clean over for they were the words I had been trying to find in my journey…
“We thank you graciously Amy for your persistence, whether we’re right or wrong in receiving, it’s really about the presence we receive no matter what! And this time it was because of the darkness you captured the true depth of beauty which is always all around us! Thank goodness for contrast 🕺💃🎶🙏🌈❤️ much love to you x”…
I was totally gobsmacked. Here was two ladies already there…but I wasn’t listening…but now I did, perfectly, timed as only Spirit can 😀
Those many contrasts in life are indeed our guide to finding so much of that truth within us. That love that can only be seen by contrasting it with all those hard parts of our journey. Each and every moment is a contrast of what went before, even of those hopes and dreams of the future. This very beautiful world is showing us such a profound understanding as it slowly goes through night and day, winters to summers…and such emotional contrasts so that we will appreciate what we eventually find in that love through it all. We are those beautiful autumn leaves…contrasting…regardless of it all.
I thank you both for sharing life as you both individually know it, and the understanding in just following your own heart. I hear you and thank you for sharing this wonderful, profound blessing ❤️🙏🏽
