People often view the spiritual path as a search
for the light. In truth, spirituality asks us to bring light and
darkness together in wholeness. And in fact, this is the only possible
solution. In our world of duality, any effort to focus all attention on
the light only serves to increase the power of the darkness. Our aim is
not to deny or reject anything but to embrace it all.

“When you are able to contain both the light and
dark together, that is a very enlightening state. It means that you no
longer have to choose one experience over another. You do not have to
choose love OR hate, blame OR forgiveness, sadness OR joy, anger OR
openheartedness. You are no longer polarized; no particular feeling
boxes you in and keeps you from the light of true self. You then have
access to the full range of human experiences you came into this life
to embrace.”

  1. In Judaism the idea is that all things are one thing. Dark, light it doesn’t matter. It all IS Gd. That is a hard concept to accept but I think you’ve written it out beautifully.
