It’s not the darkness itself that we must understand. It’s the force behind the darkness and within the darkness ... the force moving through life that we must know. This is the great passage: to see deep into our own nature by meeting its reﬂection in everything around us. To swim with something very big. To allow the Universe to love us and to love deeply in return … to allow this story to trace itself through the chapters of our life. To live within the miracle.
