The Shadow and the Light

You carry in yourself
All the obstacles necessary
To make your realization perfect.

Always you will see that
within you
the shadow and the light are equal.

If you discover a very black hole
a thick shadow
be sure there's somewhere in you
a great light.

It is up to you
to know how
to use one
to realize
the other.

-Sri Aurobindo


Happy Birthday Dad. I miss you.
Chey, 17 years of loving you have passed but the love has not dwindled or grown weary with time. I have so many, many things to tell you. One day, I hope to awaken with your arms around me.

Thank you, Jimmy, for Starlight.

The soul still sings in the darkness telling of the beauty she found there; and daring us not to think that because she passed through such tortures of anguish, doubt, dread, and horror, as has been said, she ran any the more danger of being lost in the night. Nay, in the darkness did she, rather, find herself.

--St. John, Dark Night of the Soul
