The darkness is the unknown part of our personality, the unknown part of the world that we fear the most.
Life is whole. It is not one-sided. It is not either or. It is whole, and if we just chase the light our whole lives we will be running from ourselves throughout our whole life.
Look at a candle, burning bright. If you look closely you will see the black part at the end of the wick. That represents the darkness amidst the light. It's not something to be feared. It's okay. It is okay that there is darkness with light. That is natural. That is what God created.
