Traversing Sadness

January 8, 2020 pwm1

Sadness is but a wall between two gardens.

—Khalil Gibran (Image Licensed)

It is difficult to keep sadness in perspective when we find ourselves shrouded in its dreary fog. Through the cloud of haze, we can’t see the others who are in the same state of being, so our sadness is accompanied by loneliness.

There is a reason, though, that we are sent down these dark emotional corridors. There is always a reason. By embracing the fact that we are on a Divine journey, and understanding that our path will eventually lead to the next wondrous garden, we keep moving forward.
