When I was little my grandmother used to turn out the lights at night and tell me my eyes would adjust soon and I would be able to see in the darkness. She was right. Soon my eyes would adjust to the darkness and I could see a little. When the moon was bright, I could see a lot. It just took a little while.
When we feel that our lives are in darkness – maybe we just do not completely understand what is happening in our lives – we can pause for a moment. We can let ourselves adjust to the situation. Then we can relax and look at it with a clearer view.
When we are stressed and fearful about the dark, we just bump into everything. But when we relax, we can see a little clearer very soon.
