Darkness is what many of us are afraid of. We are used to live in an environment full of brightness. That is the Sun. Almost 12 hours of the day are bright. The other hours are known as darkness. Because we are afraid to live in dark we have invented artificial lighting’s to brighten our lives. Due to this we can go all 24 hours in brightness.
The only time when we are with darkness is when we are in sleep. We are not working then. It’s the rest time. So in other words we are sleeping in darkness. Somewhere inside us there is a fear while we sleep. The cause is once again the darkness. Irrelevant of any other things that trouble your life, darkness is what you are afraid of most.
What is the main source of light? Sun in our case. It is a star of course. (Well I am not teaching you Physics or part of Geography. I am not good at teaching someone.) In 12 hours of our life we see one star that lightens up the world. Actually we cannot look at that star with naked eye. It is too bright and our eyes cannot handle it.
Now when it is dark, There is no Sun. Go to your terrace or get out of the house and look up in the sky. What you see? Stars. Many of them. Zillions of them. What we miss is this. We like the light, the bright side which is when we are unable to see the one star above us and we don’t like darkness, which shows us many stars at once.
Our life is brightened up with moments of success, joy, happiness and it darkens up when we fail or when we are sad. But actually we are missing a lot of opportunities that we cannot see while there is light. We cannot see the stars we can reach to. The unnecessary fear of dark entities make us fallback. Instead of watching the stars in the darkness we close our eyes and wait till it’s bright. We don’t even bother to think of question like “What if we open our eyes in darkness?” We hibernate and when we are out of hibernation we found ourselves weaker than what we were.
Don’t fear of dark. Face it. The next time you are in dark just remember “When it’s dark enough you can see the stars.”
Till it’s dark…
