light and dark.
been thinking a lot about the contrast, the relationship, the duality. Listening to Rev.Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr (I love to write his name full out, especially after reading FBI letters where he was addressed by his last name as they would not dignify his titles, and even then they still had to call that man KING! *shout* But I digress.) I was listening to the speech Unfulfilled Dreams where he spoke on the light and dark that inevitably lives within each of us.
light and dark in the world. light and dark within my own spirit. It’s really a beautiful balancing duality. Too bad we labeled it good and bad, that label haunts us forever. We prejudge, shy away from, or even become scared of or intimated by the dark.
I’m vowing to spend time honoring the dark. The shadow. The beauty. And how perfect that I sit under the sky during the new moon basking in the possibilities that can only be created in the dark. It really is the essence of creativity.
I am light and perhaps even more so, I am dark.
