We chase the light of day. Whether it’s because we have an affinity to the sunlight that goes back to the beginning of time. Caveman would seek exposure to daylight several times a day without any light to distract the natural sequence of nature at night. Our eyes cue melatonin production and getting 30 minutes a day of bright sunlight is said to boost Vitamin D production to a healthy level.
We’re attracted to the light. Whether it’s nature or a light that belongs to a person. With Hinduism, it’s believed to be an aura that has colors attached to the energy. However with my Christian beliefs at the foundation of my higher power, I should mention that there is no biblical evidence of auras or beliefs.
As a human existing in the earth we share, I believe that people give off a “vibe” or a feeling that we connect with and when it’s a healthy connection it can lift you so high. But like a moth to a flame, we sometimes fly too close to a light before we realize that it’s going to kill us.
But it’s hard to turn that attraction off even when it’s not a romantic connection, it’s a shared attraction because of the happiness that person brings into your life. Where it gets toxic is when the light of the person changes.
With the Hindu beliefs, lights change when people go through things in life and if they don’t handle the problems when they occur, the light will change for the worst but it doesn’t have to stay that way. When the mind works through the realms of the changes can become better and brighter.
I reference this religion to match the social media use of vibes, feels, and loves. I was first exposed to Hinduism when I was in college and remain open to the study of it and beliefs it brings. Social media users find it fun and a true testament that vibes, lights, and love can attract us to anything. Just know when you’re attracted to someone that it can go awry.
Such is life.
Things will go awry and it doesn’t mean it will stay that way. You can hope, wish, pray, light some candles, say a good omen, or whatever. Things get better. Don’t let the light blind you from the goodness that still exists.
There is so much to be happy about. Don’t let anything hurt you to the point that you forget the good in yourself nor that person. Sure, they were amazing and they still are, they’re just not meant to be in this season.
Could they come back? Maybe. Don’t wait for it. Tell yourself that you’re okay cause you are. Remind yourself of the good in the life you live with your career, friends, family, volunteering, and everything else that you do.
You are not blinded or jaded. Flip the script in your mind. You can’t make anyone love you. You just have to love yourself and self-love means you will stop touching a wound so it can heal.
Your light is the most important one to keep lit.
