When I was young I used to hear this song “Lean on me by
Bill Withers” upon the radio. It would always seem to play when I was feeling
down, giving me a modicum of comfort even if fleeting. Now that I am older and I can really
appreciate the message of the song, I still struggled with how to practically
apply its notion, so that I could rely upon a strength greater than my own in
the times when I was weak. An excerpt of
its lyrics are as follows:
Sometimes in our lives
We all have pain
We all have sorrow
But if we are wise
We know that
there's always tomorrow
Lean on me, when
you're not strong
And I'll be your
I'll help you carry
For it won't be
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on
So what does it mean?
Whether you believe it or not, there is a greater power
contained within each and every one of us that comes from our Creator, whom of
which, goes by whatever name you feel comfortable giving it. The song calls for you to “lean on me when
you’re not strong.” How many of you have
felt that some days, you just do not have the strength to carry on, that this
burden, a creation of our own thoughts, weighs down upon you so heavily it’s as if you literally cannot breathe? So how do you tap into this strength, how do
you lift the weight that pulls you down?
Our heartfelt tears carry upon it, the soothing balm of the
spirit within; it is at this lowest point that we are most open to receive the
message of love; the strongest power in the universe with which to heal our
wounds. In this supplication, you
literally ASK for the strength within to step forward, then YOU move out of the
way, let go of control and allow that force within to lead.
Once you learn to loosen the grip that you have on your
life; once you learn that your way of thinking no longer serves you; once you
learn that life will keep beating the hell out of you until you submit to that
higher power within, you will always feel pain.
Just for today, let the words of the song guide you to the
“ME” within. Lean on ME, when you’re not
strong and I will be your friend! It may
just turn out to be the BEST friend that you will ever need.
