Do not fear the darkness, the darkness you see in the world or the darkness you find within yourself.
Darkness is really a longing for light, for hope, a call to action to create a more compassionate and loving world. Darkness is a prelude to awakening to the delusions of ego, the source of so much darkness. Darkness needs you, your courage, your light, your energy and your warmth.
When you illuminate darkness, when you face it and flood it with light, it ceases to be darkness and the darkness disappears. Without darkness, there can be no light.
You are the light of the world. Simply be that light and the darkness will find its own end, just as surely as dawn follows night.
