The Angels remind us to appreciate the gifts we receive, even if they’re wrapped in packages we don’t understand or wouldn’t have chosen. So many time we throw out something valuable because it doesn’t appear so on the outside. As Mary Oliver writes, even darkness can be a gift.

The Angels remind us that the light at the end of the tunnel we so often seek is actually our own heart light, keeping the way lit when all we can see is darkness.

This too shall pass,
The whispers whisper,
Yet it feels like darkness stays forever
And light refrains from illuminating
The places inside and out
Which need the light for mere survival
And yet it is in these moments
That the whispers also whisper
An ancient recollection:
Although the light is seeking us
We must also seek the light;
Illumination comes from opening the inner heart,
Withstanding not resisting,
Courageously opening to it,
Going through it,
For often, they whisper,
The greatest insights are discovered
From the darkness within, uncovered
The ghosts, they come and go
Lingering in the darkness of a crowded mind
Moving in and out, wispy and ethereal,
Making space for their meanderings
Between the walls of untrained thoughts
And loose-lipped whispers
Whispers of the past
Harbingers of a future yet unseen
These ghosts, they dominate the mind
When the mind dwells in past affairs
Swirling in and through the soul,
Making present lives but a hazy dream
These ghosts, they are but fiction,
A fragment of a dream already dreamt
No amount of clinging will bring them back
Or make them real again
These ghosts, just let them be
The Angels remind us to open our eyes, take in the beauty of the world around us. All is not lost, if we choose to see through to the light rather than close our eyes I the darkness.
The Angels remind us that we are both the symptom and the cure, the cause and the effect, the yin and the yang. When we stop blaming others and accept both the light and the darkness within ourselves, we will be free.
The Angels remind us that darkness cannot win if we have light in our hearts. We need not fight or live in fear, but rather tap into the light and truth within.
