Go out of the house to see the moon, and't is mere tinsel; it will not please as when its light shines upon your necessary journey.

We cannot hold a torch to light another's path without brightening our own.
Contributed by: Jacquelyn
Light gives of itself freely, filling all available space. It does not seek anything in return; it asks not whether you are friend or foe. It gives of itself and is not thereby diminished.
Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in awhile, or the light won't come in.
Alan Alda (1936 -)

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.
