Let there be light

I have always had this feeling that there is ‘something higher‘ out there  looking after me and checking I’m still doing okay. I find that

  • after times of stress there are always times of relief;
  • after tears there is always peace;
  • after rain there is sun-shine.

For me, suffering is never ongoing and eternal.

I’ve been reflecting on this quite a lot recently, and how lucky I am to feel that there is something looking after me.  One day I went outside to look for signs of that ‘something higher’, and this is what I found in my very own backyard:

something higher

I stood there wondering whether this was my ‘something higher’. I closed my eyes and breathed and I slowly felt covered with warmth. When I opened my eyes again, the light had grown:

Light of peace and acknowledgement

I’m not sure whether this was a co-incidence. But even if it was, I felt so reassured and safe that my ‘something higher’ was out there looking after me.

Something higher 

Every day, the light of the earth makes me feel happy and safe.  These are some other pictures that I have taken, when in search for my something higher:

Light fading but promising to be back tomorrow

Reminder that there is light through the darkness

Warmth starts at home

Spare a thought 

I’d like to finish this post today by asking you to join me in sparing a thought for those who feel in the midst of darkness. Be assured that you’re not alone, and that people out there, like us, are thinking of you.

Sometimes it can be very hard when you have been faced with rejection from others and you have become isolated from others and yourself. Sometimes I admit that it can feel that no one out there cares for you.

But sometimes, its not other people out there looking after you. For me, I don’t have many friends or family that look after me, but I know that there’s still something higher that is checking now and then that I’m okay.

It took me a long time to open my eyes to the possibility. I hope that you will also open your eyes and discover that your something higher exists out there for you as well.

Thank you for reading my post


  1. I have a sad thought about this. I’ve been talking about this for some time. Someone, someone I treasured very much told me she wished to see the sunrise, but never then had a chance again. And this touches my heart when I read your post. I don’t have many friends / family looking out for me too, but I know somewhere out there, up there maybe, there’s someone watching out for me now. Thanks for sharing.

    • I’m sorry to hear about your friend. I’m glad you still feel her presence.
