Darkness is a lie. There is only light. 

Darkness lurks ubiquitously, mockingly, as though it is the sober truth—that all is empty, for there is no meaning. 

But the truth is that light, not darkness, precedes all things. Endless light is the true canvas upon which reality is conceived, and endless light is its final destination. 

Let your soul hold tight to that vision. See beyond the eye’s horizon. Stand firm against the taunts and scorn of this darkness, allow it to bring out your inner courage.

The darkness will be transformed. Your night will shine brightly.

And so Deborah the prophetess sang, “As the sun when it comes out in all its might, so will be His lovers.”
