Without the darkness the light would not shine
We've talked about Casting shadows on the Horizon. We've talked about leaning towards Buddha and being comfortable in your own skin. Today I'm going to talk about Desiderata again from the perspective of light and darkness. Yin and yang remixed.
Without darkness we would not know what light is. Without the night sky, we wouldn't be able to see the stars shine. It's the principle of yin and yang. Light and darkness. Good and evil. In the West we see them as opposites in conflict but that is not always the case. In the East they see them as compliments like male and female. Which re-instills the absurdity of the new NDP elementary school curriculum that tells young kids there's no such thing as gender.
Good and evil does exist. We can be influenced by one or the other but the bottom line is that we are free to chose between the two. We are responsible for our own choices and what we do in life echos in eternity. When darkness rises, light shines. Peace.
