Oh, so the light falls upon you and then what do you see? A shadow forms behind you. Now the question arises, "Will the shadow become bigger than you or will you rise into the light so the shadow diminishes as you go?" That is the ultimate question and the answer is how you decide to live your life. Not that it won't change. Just like the sun as it moves across the sky casts its light creating shadows that change throughout the day, so you can live more or less in the light with the choices you make. Your shadow will change throughout your life. Each person has a shadow cycle or issues or learning to be done in their life time. Be patient with yourself. Be firm. Be gentle. Be who you need to be so that you can learn your lessons and give the best version of yourself to the world. Being yourself as you know it in each moment of now is really the best you can do. If you think you can do better, then do it. But don't be too hard on yourself if you made decisions that you can now see from a different perspective. Know that you did the best that you could for that moment. And if, it really wasn't your best, then know this and work to do better. That's the job of your shadow - to show you a part of yourself that is the part of you that reveals itself depending on how you are living in the light.
