Nothing is Darker than Midnight and it Lasts One Minute

There are times when we are absolutely down. We are anxious, desperate, distraught, dejected, grieved, overwhelmed, and so on. In sum, we are a mess. Our energy is so low we can hardly function. In fact, we can't function at all. The worst thing is that the lower our energies are, the higher our despair soar. It is a vicious cycle.

However, we need to understand that, nothing is darker than midnight and it lasts only one minute. This means that, of course, whatever desperate situation we find ourselves in, we should know that: this too, shall pass.

I remember a story that I read many years ago and it goes like this.

This man arrived at the airport under torrential rain. The plane left and the storm continued. He didn't think they would make it. But the airplane took flight and soon they were above the clouds and lo and behold, a beautiful full moon was shining perfectly on a dark sky. He arrived at his destination under heavy rain again. He met a friend at the arrival and they decided to share a cab to the city.

While they were talking, the man told his friend about this beautiful moon shining up above that storm. The cab driver heard the story and started looking up to the sky, every time they hit a red light. The rain was still falling heavily. When the other passenger left the cab, the driver asked the man if the moon was truly shining so beautifully up above. The man said "Yes, can you imagine it?" The driver then kept looking up and muttering to himself "Who would believe it?"

As the cab driver stopped at the man's house, the driver turned to the man and effusively thanked him saying: "You have just changed my life!"

Now, what made the driver say that is for us to decide. The moral of the story is that every time you find your life in a stormy and dark condition, remember that up above the clouds, there is a full moon (or perhaps a bright sun) shining over you. The clouds are just the appearance of the situation.

Affirm to yourself that "Nothing is darker than midnight and it lasts only one minute." You will soon realize that the minute will pass sooner than you think. Just focus on the true essence of things. That will be enough to get you going until the Truth manifests for you.
