I never felt the need to take a torch or any form of light. I see like a cat in the dark – and my feet and other senses guide my way. I don’t like it when people take a light source at night. It blocks my ability to “see in the dark”.
Darkness and light are intimately linked and belong together.
It is interesting to me that there are so many “light workers” and very few “shadow or darkness workers” in our modern societies. A lot of people shy away from darkness, and the power of darkness often seems to go unrecognized.
Dark deep waters, the blackness of the night hold treasures for me that I deeply cherish. During the night I get my deepest insights. The essence of most of my books is written in the early hours before sunrise. The darkness of the night holds magic for me. My perception, my senses work differently. Everything slows down – and is heightened and accelerated at the same time. Darkness brings a clarity that I rarely find in the light of the day. There is a deep sense of peace and stillness and calm arising out of the darkness.
Shadows are visible during the day – at night my shadow being is dissolving into the darkness. I melt into the darkness – and am reborn with every new day into the light.
