To start anew we sometimes must hit rock bottom. From the depths of disaster, we learn new strengths, gain new insights, and often find an unexpected gem. The seed must wait in the dark for a long time before it ever begins to bloom.
In mindful presence,
To go in the dark with a light is to know the light.
To know the dark, go dark. Go without sight,
and find that the dark, too, blooms and sings,
and is traveled by dark feet and dark wings.
