Silver lining

It was never the same again …

It was gloomy. I was walking alone on a long journey, not knowing where it will lead me. I was looking up every now and then in hope to find some guidance from the stars that had always accompanied me wherever I went, always following me in unison and shining upon me its radiant blessings. But that day I couldn’t see it past the thick gray sky. That was when I felt betrayed …

“It had left me.”

Was I really looking for my star? Or was I just probing for some reasons?

Reasons perhaps. Reasons to why it happens. And if it does happen, why it feels the way it does. Why we feel betrayed? Why can’t it be the same as it was before? Why does our stars leave us in times when we need its guidance the most?

All that, and many other questions came in my mind.

But then as I kept walking, I saw light beaming ahead on the road from above piercing through that thick layer of darkness pointing towards my destiny.

“I was never betrayed.”

I felt ashamed of myself to have doubted. I realized, it is about having faith and trust in it. It might take a while before you see the correct path, but never lose hope.

I read a quote somewhere, and it was very truly said, that “When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which God has opened for us”.

It is all about looking for that silver lining, which is in fact the radiance of those stars above that are always there to guide us even in the darkest times …
