“Ever since we crawled out of that primordial slime, that’s been our unifying cry, “More light.” Sunlight. Torchlight. Candlelight. Neon, incandescent lights that banish the darkness from our caves to illuminate our roads, the insides of our refrigerators. Big floods for the night games at Soldier’s Field. Little tiny flashlights for those books we read under the covers when we’re supposed to be asleep. Light is more than watts and footcandles. Light is metaphor. Light is knowledge, light is life, light is light.” ~Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider
Isn’t it amazing that we as adults are so scared of “darkness”? We look towards anything to give us light … in cars, in microwaves, in aeroplanes, in our rooms, reading our books, illuminating our iphones and ipads … will those “lights” actually help remove the darkness that exists within our souls? Why are we so scared of the darkness within our soul? I actually think that the darkness is needed for us to see that we are not perfect, and that the darkness can be removed or released once you know you are carrying it. There is always 2 sides to a story, 2 sides to a soul, 2 sides to a relationship, 2 sides to a friendship. After every day is a night.
The most important thing to remember is not to let the darkness take over. Understand why the darkness exists, and let the light flood it and merge within it. Light of Love. Light of Faith. Light of Belief. Light of Knowledge.
After all …
“Who is more foolish, the child afraid of the dark or the man afraid of the light?”
