There is always a key to the most obdurate of locks, says Megha Bajaj
There are times when things really look very difficult. It could be a horribly stuck work situation, or maybe an impossible health issue. It could be a relationship that looks like its breathing its last, or a financial challenge where no solution seems viable. We have all been through these, haven’t we?
The most common reaction is to give up. To tell yourself, it is just not worth it and walk out of it (if possible) or just give up. However, recently in my life, having experienced something which looked like an absolute lock – with no key whatsoever, completely resolve itself, I have started believing there is a way to crack the toughest nut too.
Someone very close to me was diagnosed with last-stage cancer and it looked like we were fighting an impossible battle. Doctors had given up, the medical reports suggested death in the near future, and everything looked as grim as grim could be. I desperately looked through books and videos – hoping I could lay my hands on something, something that could help. I came across a single line. It said, “It takes just a little light to dispel the darkest of darkness.”
I don’t know why these words caused deep churning in me. Somehow it convinced me. God would only give us as much as we could handle. Not more. If there was a lock – somewhere, hidden in some crevice – was a key too. Arming ourselves with immense faith, we decided to walk. Just a single step each day – just till where we could see, and hope that the next day we would be shown further.
We began with no answers. And yet, just like I believed it would – each day something began to happen. We met someone with a completely unique perspective to cancer. We changed her diet. We meditated with fervour. We didn’t allow a speck of hopelessness to settle in. And yes, we kept walking. It looked like a dark tunnel – we floundered, we fumbled, we even fell – but we just kept walking.
I came across a single line. It said, “It takes just a little light to dispel the darkest of darkness.
In a few weeks, the miracle began to happen. The woman who could not stand for even two minutes to brush her teeth – began to go for 10-minute walks. First with our help, and then independently. The 10 minutes grew to 20, then 30.
It was like watching a miracle – a metamorphosis of the most profound nature – right before our eyes. Although she is still a little weak, I believe in my heart and soul she is on the right path to recovery. The doctors are amazed. They had given her two weeks last November – what happened?
I came across a single line. It said, “It takes just a little light to dispel the darkest of darkness.The answer can never be explained in medical terms. However, spiritually, it can be explained. When you have absolute faith that this is not the end, but a bend in your life – and you have the courage to stay calm and keep walking – there comes a time when everything does shift. What you have to remember is three things:
1) Keep walking, keeping an end in mind… where are you heading? Towards health, in our case.
2) Believe there is something higher and better waiting for you in the future. It keeps the present, no matter how challenging, pleasant.
3) Have dauntless faith – this is the most difficult of all. However, if somehow you can achieve this – and believe, sooner or later, you will make it – you will.
I plead with each one of you reading this – if you happen to be facing some crisis… something unbearable – just keep walking. One more step. One more step. And the morning will be born.
