We can fly, and yet we crawl. We can soar high in the sky and touch the sun, be filled with the ecstatic light of the majestic stars, and yet we are drowning in abysmal waters, in darkness, where light can hardly penetrate.
This has not been imposed on us but we have chosen to live this way; we desire it—it is our biggest attachment. We are used to this empty life and don’t wish to escape from it. We have become identified with it. And even a single ray of light is enough to scare us.
Light always threatens darkness. Once light appears, darkness ceases to exist, and darkness knows it very well. That is why it is so afraid of the light—because for it, light means death, hence it is its greatest enemy. So we try to preserve darkness in all ways we can, by living in the caves of our psyche, endlessly building walls around ourselves to prevent any possibility of light making its presence, lest it reveals to us what we are most scared of.
WE ARE THE LIGHT WE ARE NOT WILLING TO ENCOUNTER. WE ARE THE BEAUTY WE ARE AFRAID TO CONFRONT.
