One day the sun and a cave struck up a conversation. The sun had trouble understanding what ‘dark’ meant and the cave did not quite get the hang of ‘light and clear’ so they decided to change places.
The cave went up to the sun and said, “Ah, I see, this is beyond wonderful. Now come down and see where I have been living.” The sun went down to the cave and said, “Gee, I do not see any difference.” The cave was totally surprised by what the sun had to say because in reality when the sun went down to the cave, it took its light along with it and even the darkest corners were illuminated with its radiating light. That’s why the sun could not see any difference whatsoever.
There is a profound quote from an old book that said, “The enlightened ones can never be sent to hell or pushed into darkness. They carry their heaven or abundant light on their shoulders all the time.” If we are full of darkness within, full of negativity, fear and doubt, you become a cave unknowingly. It’s a hell within and no matter how much you accumulate knowledge, you still remain hollow.
If you are illuminated like the sun, then the darkness of the cave would not matter to you at all. You could be in the worse of circumstances but you’ll still be able to find a blessing somewhere. You will always be positive in life and you will always be carrying your heaven with you.
BE YOUR OWN SUNSHINE. BE LOVING AND KIND TO EACH AND EVERYONE YOU MEET ON YOUR JOURNEY IN THIS BEAUTIFUL LIFE.…………………….
