On Black Moments

"One thing that comes out in myths, for example, is that at the bottom of the abyss comes the voice of salvation. The black moment is the moment when the real message of transformation is going to come. At the darkest moment comes the light" (pg 46).

Am reading: The Power of Myth by Joseph Campbell


I love the idea of this--that the darkest moments of our lives are the most revealing (and, in many ways, the most necessary).

Because we don't often have those life-changing revelations when things are going well, do we? Nope. It's when shit hits the fan that we start to re-think our priorities. The direction we're heading. Our motives. Where we want to be this time next year. 

Hitting rock bottom is never fun, but if we're willing use that "black moment" to learn and grow, big changes can happen in our lives.

This is true for every "black moment" I've ever experienced. Also? They don't last forever.

It's always darkest before the dawn. :)

Be Brilliant!
