In the Midst of Darkness by Mahatma Gandhi

Mahatma Gandhi wrote something very beautiful that I keep with me to remind me of how precious life is and remind me that God is always here. Maybe some people will find it inspiring too.

In the Midst of Darkness by Mahatma Gandhi

I do dimly perceive that whilst everything around me is ever changing, ever dying, there is underlying all that change a living power that is changeless, that holds all together, that creates, dissolves, and re-creates. That informing power or spirit is God. And since nothing else that I see merely through the senses can or will persist, He alone is. And is this power benevolent or malevolent? I see it as purely benevolent. For I can see that in the midst of death life persists, in the midst of untruth truth persists, in the midst of darkness light persists. Hence I gather that God is life. Truth. Light. He is love. He is the Supreme Good.
