Shadows do not exist without light.
January 21, 2024
It is good to rejoice when you are in the presence of light, and it is natural to despair when you are in the presence of shadows. But always remind yourself of the fact that shadows do not exist without the light, so both exist in the present. Both exist in the now. No human being is fully light. No human being is fully the shadow. Embrace the shadows as you embrace what is life-giving, welcoming the reality that both belong to what it means to be human.
When you live in a condition of just spirit, the shadows fall away, and the balance that is necessary is a balance of acknowledging that there is the light of God and the light of all that has been created. The two together represent the true reality of the oneness of all.
