Emotion is the chief source of all becoming-conscious. There can be no transforming of darkness into light and of apathy into movement without emotion.

When you come to the end of all the light you know, and it's time to step into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing that one of two things shall happen: either you will be given something solid to stand on or you will be taught to fly.

The Christ within you is King....every particle, every cell of your body, is subject to the divine power and glory. Realise the divine magical presence within you. The Light overcomes all darkness.

Shadow and Light Source BothHow does a part of the world leave the world?How does wetness leave water?Dont' try to put out fire by throwing onmore fire! Don't wash a wound with blood.No matter how fast you run, your shadowkeeps up. Sometimes it's in front!Only full overhead sun diminishes your shadow.But that shadow has been serving you.What hurts you, blesses you. Darkness isyour candle. Your boundaries are your quest.I could explain this, but it will break theglass cover on your heart, and there's nofixing that.You must have shadow and light source both.Listen, and lay your head under the tree of awe.When from that tree feathers and wings sprout on you,be quieter than a dove. Don't even open your mouth foreven a coo.

Paint right into the darkness. While painting in these conditions the mind shifts gears, engaging the unconscious. Unique 'insights' happen in the dark.
