“People who have no hope are easy to control, and whoever has the control, has the power.” Thus says Gmork, the servant to the Nothing in The Neverending Story.
Do you believe this?
Do you have hope?
Who is in charge of your destiny, your future, your life, your choices?
If it is true that those without hope are easy to control, how do they get to that edge of such despair? Gmork says it’s “because people have begun to lose their hope and forget their dreams.” and that therefore, “the Nothing grows stronger.” The emptiness that remains is despair.
If you know the story, you know that the conversation is between Gmork and Atreyu, the warrior chosen to help save the land of Fantasia from the Nothing. Atreyu is a mere boy warrior who was stripped of all weapons and began his quest with only a horse. The horse was lost in the Swamp of Sadness, so now he is alone. Or so he thinks.
Gmork is lurking, so he is not alone. And there, of course, are BEings of Light ready and waiting to help. So, again, he is not alone.
In your darkest times, do you consciously know that you have Invisible Helpers waiting and standing at the ready?
When you despair, you lose hope. When you lose hope, you give an inch or two to the Darkness that, I believe, does want to overtake us. When you reach out and cling to hope, you choose Light. When you choose Light, you raise the vibration of the entire planet and impact the Collective Consciousness in a positive way.
Arm yourself with hope, reclaim your dreams and reach out to someone who can serve as an anchor to keep you steady in an unsteady time. You are not alone. Even in your darkest hour.
