Sometimes from where we’re standing, the sun’s just too bright. I should’ve moved. But I didn’t. Was going to delete this photo, but decided to keep it — so I’d remember yet another lesson from nature: Sometimes from where we stand, our view isn’t the true picture; sometimes we’re momentarily blinded from seeing the real colors … because sometimes we just aren’t in the best place to see clearly.
We just need to move a bit — maybe to regain a better attitude and let go of pain or sadness … or to take a break from the glare that drives us crazy … or to strengthen or soften a heart growing faint or jagged — and then look again.
The sun can illuminate or blind us. Like truth. We just have to work with it until we have a clear picture, and then not look away. Because if we look away, we lose our balance by staying in the dark too long. Truth — real truth, not someone else’s spin on it — always has a way of leading us to freedom, and giving us better vision of what’s right in front of us, even the dark green beauty of a cucumber plant.
