Preface: While having coffee with a friend and talking, an "aha moment" showed up and I finally understood this epiphany from the inside-out. It was what happened to me.
That's How the Light Gets In
How many times have I heard the lyrics to this Leonard Cohen song … "There Is a Crack in Everything, That’s How the Light Gets In" and thought I understood them ... and I kind of did.
But now for the 1st time, truly understand what the words are saying to us all.
You see, today as I was sipping coffee with a friend in conversation, I realized with the power of 20/20 hindsight, that this is what I have deeply experienced the past 3 years of my life … much Light.
First, an agonizing pain from a deep emotional crack that I experienced without warning as a result from my most difficult life realization ... that it was time to leave the old me ... in mind, bo
dy, and spirit ... behind once and for all. And as I did, I could feel the release of so much unwanted emotional darkness from deep inside my heart. "Be gone ... be gone." I told it.
And soon after the initial shock of this deep and painful crack began to ware off ... and without notice, I started experiencing an amazing mystical Light ... an awareness of aha moments if you will ... like pieces to
the puzzle of life itself ... adding to my Dimensions of Personal Awareness ever since. Each time, revealing comforting new understandings about life to nourish and sooth my heart and soul ... and always feeling blessed.
I am so very grateful for this most difficult yet life altering Crack ... and for the Light that I now refer to as "Silent-Knowing".
