There is light at the end of a tunnel, but you must go through the situation with complete faith knowing that, respite awaits ahead. The tunnel represents our life’s journey filled with darkness and lot of difficulties. During this moment, it is the human instinct to look for a way out of the situation.
Yes, the darkness might be so terrifying simply because you are stuck and you are unable to navigate your way ahead. This signifies the inner struggles when in moments of despair. However, these thoughts are inaccurate because they can pull you into this darkened state.
During this situation, you need to allow circumstances to be as they are. According to the lyrics of the song Let it Be, “When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me, speaking words of wisdom, let it be. And when the night is cloudy, there is still a light that shines on me, shine on until tomorrow, let it be.” The light that shines is the contrast of light and dark, merged in the sea of duality.
When you are stuck in the darkness, you have two choices. It is either you draw your attention to the fear or direct your focus towards the light. When you do this, you renew your faith and trust that relief will soon follow.
Also, during uncertain times, we must take each day as it comes. You have to gain wisdom in your darkest hour, knowing your eternal soul cannot be obscured. Therefore, you need to focus on the smallest progress instead of looking to a tomorrow which may not arrive as you hope for.
Nothing is certain during this moment. Instead of struggling, the smallest act forward is to renew your faith that, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Carl Jung said, “as far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.”
So, the darkness invites you to practice self-compassion and nurture equanimity within yourself. To find light at the end of the tunnel, you must advance through the darkness knowing your change lies around the corner. Also, you need to embrace such moment as a door way to inner transformation.
There is light at the end of a tunnel!
