Easing the stranglehold
If you are going through a difficult time, you might for a moment be still and let your being be flooded with a presence felt as a light in you, around you, and through you. A spiritual gravity so to speak. You are encompassed by it. It is a good thing. For the moment you feel lifted and experience another realm.
However, one cannot stay in this realm. One cannot meet it even halfway. You have to return to your situation, to the laws and rules that run it. The physics of the world demand this. The light doesn't eliminate them. What does happen is that you bring back to your situation the understanding that there is a light, a presence. Just knowing and experiencing this eases the stranglehold your situation has upon you.
