From emptiness good things come



In the void

The void holds all


Pregnant with potential

Ready to spring forth from the protection of the darkness

Feels exciting

And nervy

Both on the same thin edge

An electrifying jolt


Everything you need contained and held within the shell

as you begin to crack through the lining

and out into the open light


and free to rise above

the surface


receive all the offerings

For your consideration:

Does the dark feel comfortable to you? I suppose it depends on the situation. For me, looking up at a clear night’s sky can be wonderfully mesmerizing. Walking out to my car at night on a nearly empty street without streetlights, not so much.

And for me, the darkest part of the year can leave me feeling a bit glum at best, and downright anxious at worst. As humans, we like many animals, however, benefit from the protective cover that Winter brings. And not unlike a baby bird, we are born out from a dark place that holds all we need to bring with us to survive out in the world, out into the daylight. May we (I) remember that, again and again.

Okay, your turn:

In what ways do you resist darkness? If what ways do you embrace it?
