Darkness is not to be feared, but embraced
From the darkness of the womb we are born
Through the darkness of death we return to Source
Within the darkness of space
we see the light of the moon and stars
The darkness of night gives way to the light of day
The darkness of our Soul
is illuminated by the Light of Knowing
It is the balance of Darkness and Light within our Soul
that brings us into Universal Harmony with the Creation
Darkness lends strength and power to Light
for without Darkness there will be no Light
This poem is from a self-published booklet titled “One Year After...And Beyond” co-created in 2002 (the title refers to one year after the events of 9/11). The words were a co-creation with spirit on 12/1/02 during Hanukah, when a lot of what Liora was reading in regard to this holiday was about “dispelling the darkness” as if it is something to be “gotten rid of”. Spirit said to her “darkness is not to be feared, but embraced”; she sat down and the words just flowed into her head, and onto the paper. You may contact Liora at firstname.lastname@example.org.
