“Help us to be the always hopeful
Gardeners of the spirit
Who know that without darkness
Nothing comes to birth
As without light
~May Sarton, from “The Invocation of Kali”
Most of us prefer the “light” times of life, filled with happiness and ease, but the darkness and the light are both necessary.
Nothing is born without time in the darkness to gestate. Nothing blooms without the sun’s light.
