Moving to the other side.
There are two sides to our lives; there is the ‘darker side’ and the ‘beautiful side’.
Some spend too much time on the darker side, rarely experiencing the beautiful side of life, outside a few instants.
This can depend on many factors: your upbringing, view of the world or circumstances.
Remaining on the darker side’ can simply be a habit; you stay because that is all you know.
What is the ‘darker side’?
It is the place that is always cloudy and chilly.
Worries and concerns are consuming.
Regrets are never forgiven or forgotten.
Thoughts judge and shame persevere.
Competition and comparison drive you.
Sadness comes and stays.
Anger and resentment fuels you.
The darker side convinces you that success and happiness can only be found on that side, the lighter and more beautiful side is a only an illusion.
Hard work without time for play, long hours, and being constantly busy sits comfortably on that side.
Toxic people will convert you to the darker side, with their negativity your energy will be drained so you cannot move to the beautiful side even if you wanted to.
If you decide that you want to move to the ‘beautiful side’, the ‘darker side’ will tug at your guilt strings, it fights to keep you as you are.
Once you move over to the ‘beautiful side’ or the other side, life becomes lighter and warmer; there is hope without persistent unease.
Love flourishes, colours are vibrant, thoughts quiet down, everyone is equal, and you get sad but move on.
Anger comes and goes swiftly, resentment only lasts for seconds.
Work can be hard, but you love what you do, being too busy does not exist. Play is as important as work.
People love and support you, whether or not they disapprove. They hold you up and love you, and you do the same in return.
No, this is not fantasyland; it is just the other side of the ‘darker side’.
If the ‘darker side’ exists, then why is it difficult to conceive that the ‘beautiful side’ exists?
It is because many of us are stuck on the ‘darker side’ and see no way of moving over.
Moving over to the other side can be tough, and requires presence, patience and perseverance: The 3 P’s.
Once you get to the other side, you will never want to leave the ‘beautiful side’, time on the ‘darker side’ lessens and you are free and happy.
