A Quote by Patrick Overton on darkness and fly

When we walk to the edge of all the light we have and take the step into the darkness of the unknown, we must believe that one of two things will happen. There will be something solid for us to stand on or we will be taught to fly.

A Quote by Cecelia Ahern on struggle, darkness, fear, contradiction, bravery, and strength

My darkest moments, my most fearful times, when faced, became my bravest.  At your weakest, you end up showing more strength; at your lowest you are suddenly lifted higher than you've ever been.  They all border one another, these opposites, and show how quickly we can be altered.

A Quote by Julia Butterfly Hill on transformation, attachment, demons, free, social reality, darkness, inner, caterpillar, light, wings, and formation

True transformation occurs only when we can look at ourselves squarely and face our attachments and inner demons, free from the buzz of commercial distraction and false social realities.  We have to retreat into our own cocoons and come face-to-face with who we are.  We have to turn toward our own inner darkness.  For only by abandoning its attachments and facing the darkness does the caterpillar's body begin to spread out and its light, beautiful wings begin to form.

A Quote by Patricia Cori on darkness, destiny, evolution, exquisite beauty, god, illumination, lotus, lotus flower, mud, recognise, and splendour

Like the lotus, you experience three primary stages of evolution. The first is marked by ignorance and darkness, when you lie below the dense mud - a closed chysalis - which, by nature of existence, will eventually be pulled upwards by the warmth of the Sun. The second is exemplified by the climb through the clouded waters of your emotional experience, yet still the flower reaches to the Sun, knowing no other destiny ... no other purpose. The third brings full illumination in the splendour of the light. The Lotus flower blossoms, baring its exquisite beauty to all those who are aware, enough to recognise God unfolding.

A Quote by Sage Vasishtha on self-knowledge, knowledge, truth, guru, preceptor, scipture, works, inquiry, wise, company, holy, satsang, inner light, light, darkness, and inertia

Self-knowledge or knowledge of truth is not had by resorting to a guru (preceptor) nor by the study of scripture, nor by good works: it is attained only by means of inquiry inspired by the company of wise and holy men. One's inner light alone is the means, naught else. When this inner light is kept alive, it is not affected by the darkness of inertia.

A Quote by Carl Gustav Jung on human, existence, kindle, light, meaning, dark, darkness, and being

As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light of meaning in the darkness of mere being.
