    Sometimes, I can't see hope, because it's too dark to see it.
    But that doesen't mean I lost it.

    I agree, my friend. Completely. You have not lost it. Nor have I. Nor has total eclipse or so many other people. Even when we think we have lost it. I have felt hopeless many times. But it always is as you say. Just cannot see through the darkness. Then when I can see again, the hope is there. here are some of the new hugs for you

    What Is Hope?

    When things go wrong, as they sometime will,
    The optimist thinks: ‘They’ll come right again!’,
    While the pessimist grumbles: ‘It’ll only get worse!’
    And as our thoughts and beliefs create our earthly reality,
    Both forecasts duly come true.
    Each one nodes sagely: ‘I told you so!’
    That’s why when times are hard, positive thinkers
    Think: ‘They will get better and become easier again.’
    Though it may take time, they invariably do.

    What then is hope?
    It is not the closing of one’s eyes to
    Difficulties, risks and possible failures,
    But an inner trusting that:
    If we fail now, we shall not do so forever.
    If we get hurt, we shall be healed.
    If we make mistakes, we shall learn from them
    And we shall be allowed to move on to higher learning.

    Hope is the awareness of our innermost soul that
    Life is good and the power of love is the most powerful
    Force in the whole of Creation that
    Straightens all crooked corners and, if we but ask,
    Helps us heal everything,
    Especially our most difficult situations and relationships.

    Hope is an inner knowing that in God’s time, not ours,
    All things on the Earth plane will come right in the end.
    This life is like a great stage on which one of these days,
    We shall step in front of the curtain
    Behind which we are presently acting.
    In the world of light we then shall stand
    Like performers before a friendly audience
    Of Angels and Masters, friends and helpers.

    Every participant of the comedy of errors that is this life,
    Eventually feels the need to nail the urges of their small self to the
    Cross of consciousness of the Earth.
    At the end of their present lifetime,
    All who were wise enough to
    Willingly submit themselves to Saturn’s demands
    And have shown the restraint of self-discipline
    And self-mastery in all their relationships,
    Thus leaving behind good and healed ones only,
    Shall be presented by life itself with a leaving certificate
    That sets them free from further lessons on the Earth.

    From them no further returns to the earthly plane will be required
    And like in earthly schools, their teachers, in this case the Angels,
    Will move us on to increasingly elevated
    Levels of existence and studies.
    This is how all human souls in the fullness of time
    Take their final bows
    On this side of the veil of consciousness.

    United in friendship and love,
    Smilingly reaching out for each other and, holding hands,
    We enjoy the roar of applause that greets us.
    But, in truth we are much more eager to follow the Angels,
    To see where they may now wish to lead us.

    Having surrendered our small earthly self to our Highest Self,
    In the shelter of God’s mighty wings, in all Eternity
    We shall serenely venture forth,
    Never to be frightened or feeling lonely again.

    I will abide in Thy tabernacle forever;
    I will make my refuge the shadow of Thy wings.’
    Psalm 61:4
