The ultimate guide to finding light in darkness: Life’s deepest lessons unlocked 


Life is an unpredictable journey, a journey filled with ups and downs. A journey which can bring joy and a journey which may bring sorrow. Along this thrilling roller coaster we often are plunged into the unknowns of darkness, we seemed to overwhelmed by it’s challenges and obstacles. Yet, while tackling these challenges most beings experience a shocking transformation. Finding light in darkness; it’s not only about being positive when bad time knock your door, it’s also about growing wiser when bad times knock your door. 


Embracing darkness, not deceiving it, is the most important aspect. Denial only shall prolong the suffering and the bad times. One shall simply accept his or her current state and try working on it with a positive attitude. This raw honesty is the foundation for healing the wounds caused by bad times, which life has fostered. 


Isolation is the breeding ground for despair. Reaching out to friends and family can be the best way for healing. Sharing your burden also can free you from the load. Vulnerability is strength,surrendering yourself as a devotee to god can help as a genuine beacon of light. Chapter 18 of the holy Bhagavad Gita says,” Always think of Me, be devoted to Me, worship Me, and offer obeisance to Me” 


Mindfulness. Practicing mindfulness is the art of being present. The flickers of darkness which affect your mindset need to be blinded and you need to start noticing the small things in life which are filled with happiness. Start finding a positive reason for a cause to occur in life. Do you think that dark times are teaching your resilience and patience? Well,yes but they’re also preparing you for the battle ground of life. Nurturing your spirit and your soul is crucial. Don’t only focus on the battles but also focus on the activities which you love to participate in,religious activities,painting,dancing,reading,etc. 


Your company can also affect your life drastically. During bad and good times you need to make sure that your friend group or perhaps the people you hang out with are positive and uplift your spirit. Going for quality over quantity might hurt at first, but trust me, it is best option for the long run. In the words of Michelle Obama,” We should always have three friends in our lives-one who walks ahead who we look up to and follow; one who walks beside us, who is with us every step of our journey; and then, one who we reach back for and bring along after we've cleared the way.” 


Furthermore, one should ALWAYS cling onto hope. The four letter words may seem fragile but it’s the strongest thing in the world. Having it, can make you believe that you can get yourself out of the most terrible times. 


In conclusion, I don’t there is a better way to conclude without using the quote from the Bhagavad Gita, ”To show them special mercy, I, dwelling in their hearts, destroy with the shining lamp of knowledge the darkness born of ignorance.”
