The Brightest Stars

 

“It is often in the darkest skies that we see the brightest stars.” – Richard Evans

Contrast. This is what this world is based upon. Good and evil, dark and light, suffering and happiness. It’s the only way to find a balance, the only way to equally experience everything.

I often tell myself, in times of struggle, that they are necessary. That those times are lessons. That, without them, I wouldn’t be able to evolve as a human being.

Evolution is not easy. It’s not even supposed to be. Evolution means fighting against overwhelming odds, so if it is for us to do more and be more, we must be prepared to fight the worst life has to throw at us.

Ironic, isn’t it?

At least that’s how I see it. Without pain and anger and suffering, we wouldn’t have compassion and love and patience.

Life is a balancing act.

  1. I love that quote :) And it is a valuable perspective. If we hide from the bad things too much, the bright things also pale. It doesn’t mean we should wallow in our problems, but it rather means we are best off when we try to be clear.

  2. I wrote a while ago something , If I may, only a fragment that would surely resonate with your soul.
    “I saw all of this before getting here, I saw the dimension I saw all the darkness , I dived and wandered and tried to harness the power in being immortal, yet helpless and lawless,I told to my self and to others , there I must go, I know all there is yet without being all , without breathing through nostrils , This “I am” is but nothing it does not exist, I must go and must cease my research in exchange for this chance to just miss and release in creation this myst created out of refusing to kiss, fearing to seize , hesitating to feast and makeup this list of things to achieve”

  3. Life is a balancing act. Hmm. Balancing on that thin line of contrast between compassion and hate or whatever. I think it’s possible to walk the line straight, see things as brighter each day (sunshine permitting), and try not to see those colder, lonlier nights as anything other than nights of solitude. Lol idk just pondering. :)
