Darkness



"When we live in a world that is full of the kind of darkness we have now, there's only one hope and that is to go into it and through it, and in our small way, never to try to evade our own little bit of darkness but suffer it consciously."
— Helen M. Luke in Let in the Light by Patricia H. Livingston

"Darkness has become less an enemy for me and more a place of silent nurturance, where the slow, steady gestation of my soul's growth can occur. Not only is light a welcomed part of my life, but I am also developing a greater understanding of how much I need to befriend my inner darkness."
— Joyce Rupp in Little Pieces of Light

"Life begins and ends in darkness. According to the Bible and according to science, it is from this darkness, emptiness, and nothingness that all of creation comes into being. . . . darkness is a mystery; it evokes curiosity and fear of the unknown, and at the same time it brings us into the embrace of reality. This reality is all around us, pregnant with the existential truths of life."
— Paul Coutinho in Sacred Darkness

"Never fear periods of darkness in life. They are the atrium to new phases of life, the threshold to new experience, the invitation to move on from where you are to where there is more for you to learn."
— Joan Chittister in Light in the Darkness

"The dark night is a profoundly good thing. It is an ongoing spiritual process in which we are liberated from attachments and compulsions and empowered to live and love more freely. Sometimes this letting go of old ways is painful, occasionally even devastating. But this is not why the night is called 'dark.' The darkness of the night implies nothing sinister, only that the liberation takes place in hidden ways, beneath our knowledge and understanding. It happens mysteriously, in secret, and beyond our conscious control. For that reason it can be disturbing or even scary, but in the end it always works to our benefit."
— Gerald G. May in The Dark Night of the Soul

"I have learned things in the dark that I could never have learned in the light, things that have saved my life over and over again, so that there is really only one logical conclusion. I need darkness as much as I need light."
— Barbara Brown Taylor in Learning to Walk in the Dark

"The reason that the darkness is the gateway to all understanding is that once the darkness is understood, you're clear that nothing is separate from you. No name, no thought can possible be true in an ultimate sense. It's all provisional; it's all changing. The dark, the nameless, the unthinkable — that is what you can absolutely trust. It doesn't change, and it's benevolent."
— Byron Katie in A Thousand Names for Joy

Practice

(Work with darkness today.)

Give thanks for the darkness which is the yin to the yang of light. Think of how soothing darkness is when you are exhausted and want to rest. Perhaps you recall being irritated in a room where you could not block out bright lights when you wanted to sleep.

"Hello darkness, my old friend, I've come to talk with you again," Simon and Garfunkel sang in a popular song years ago. Make a special effort today to greet darkness and share some of the feelings that arise in you when you think about darkness.

Ponder the darkness as a spur to reverencing the mysteriousness of God. What place have you made for the darkness of the Divine as fertile and transformative in your spiritual path?

Closing Words

"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."
— Wendell Berry in The Selected Poems of Wendell Berry

Every single day I'm living in, focused on being, giving and/or receiving, participating in and/or watching, and practicing my Beliefs in....

- Serenity
- Happiness
- Love
- Sex
- Magick

Anything outside of those five Elements Of Warlock AWESOMENESS, I'm off my Path and need to get back on it quickly.

Unfortunately we are compartmentalized by others perception of how we live our lives. Think outside the box and you expand your mind. Life is too short to be concerned with how others perceive you. Find those that think like you and you have won the intellectual lottery :-). A little deep for a Monday but WTH!!

Dale, thinking outside the box is how I've lived my entire life. My 5 Elements of Warlock AWESOMENESS is more of a Spiritual Life Journey or Path. I set down one day and decided to fine tune my life's purpose. I meditated on my 'Needs' and 'Wants' and let go of a lot of things and built an entire Spiritual Belief around what was left and called it MOGYOLOGY.

Focusing on these 5 Elements does not confine me or limit me. It Enhances my Quality of Life and keeps me dedicated to my Life's Purpose.

So far, living my Beliefs has been nothing but beneficial to me.
