There is something in the dark.
And you’re worth seeking.
And you’re worth allowing it to come forward. It’s a kind of holy darkness
that might be filled with menace, it might be filled with tears.
It’s likely a mix of both. First, the rage; then, the tears; or maybe
the other way around. What is certain is that healing is there,
and a kind of unreasonable, and thrilling hope.
Whatever’s there—it is worthy of your love,
and you are worthy of the love it brings to you.
Some might say it isn’t smart to go digging in the dark. It might
lead somewhere dangerous. And they’re right. It might. And
It isn’t smart—intellectually smart, that is. It’s genius as fuck though
where the heart is concerned—where the soul is concerned, where the imagination,
and the right to be fully alive, is concerned. So, go. And why not
bring someone with you. Chances are both journeys into the darkness
cross paths or tunnels or passageways. Lift the light.
Be a lighthouse for your own shadow. Be a light for each other. The dark light—
the midnight sun—that’s often where the magic and power is.
Go and find out. There is no time to lose.
