Hope in the Darkest Days

I find hope in the darkest of days.

I find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest. I do not judge the universe.

Dalai Lama


Hope.  Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines Hope as:
to cherish a desire with anticipation <hopes for a promotion>

Hope is what I cling to.
Hope is my life preserver.
When life TRIES to darken, hope lights the way.

I know you’re thinking if you rely on hope, Chris then what you’ve written here before is out the window, because hope shouldn’t be in your lexicon.  If you believe everything happens for a reason and everything that happens is meant to happen, then hope has no reason to be in your field of view.

I can see where you’d believe that.  But another way to view the word, is to find another perspective.  How about seeing it through the prism of Law of Attraction?  Remember what Law of Attraction says?
Our thoughts create our reality.

What reality would you rather live in?
A hopeful one or a disappointing one?

Yes when something you’ve wished for, doesn’t come to pass you can feel let down, but hope can be your float, rising you back up.

Hope.  Knowing that something better is just around the corner.
Hope.  Knowing that you’ve survived this temporary relapse
Hope.  Looking back and seeing that because you’ve survived in the past that you’ll survive in the future.

Without hope, there is NOTHING to cling to.

Hope is positive.
We all need hope.

I believe the words Hope and Faith are interchangeable and as an example:
A close friend of mine was recently given a medical death sentence.  I visited this friend last week and we talked about the experience.  Being full of positive energy I did EVERYTHING I could to leave this person with all the hope I could.  As I left I said I’ll see you soon.  This person understood what I was saying and said:
Positive energy.  It’s all around you.

I smiled.
Hope is what this person can cling to.
Faith is what this person can cling to.
Positive energy is what this person needs.

Hope in the darkest days.
Can you cling to it?

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Chris

It's ok, don't worry, relax. A great many of us out here understand that the argument of "My God is Better Than Your God" is totally moot. One doesn't have to be of any particular religious belief to feel the presence of the Divine in their life. One needs only to be open to the experience. In case anyone out there is wondering: I believe in All Paths to God, no religion is more 'just' or 'righter' than another. What matters is that one has faith not how loudly they scream they're 'right'.

Patch is unfortunately prone to one-note yammerheads who have to inject an extremely partisan view into every topic. Since you can't remove comments unless they cross certain lines, the best thing to do is ignore them. Do continue to cross-post your work here; it's a nice break from the usual.

LB, well said. I too believe in all paths to God and what matters is that one has faith. What the world needs is more love, understanding, tolerance, hope and kindness. Live and let live. Thanks Chris for an uplifting piece. Keep up the good work.

May I take a shot at this? : As in the affirmation of the question of both truth and trust; what we know...what we have yet to find out...and what we make of it, may help determine what they truely are in this world we live in. . In good faith, thanks for sharing.
