The Shadow Side

The Shadow Side

We often cringe at the glimpse of our shadow side
the flaws, the darkness…a cosmic mistake
that I didn’t ask for.
But if there’s a shadow, it also means
that the light is shining also, and the darker the shadow,
the brighter the light.
Give yourself a break. This shadow is your work, this time around.
Don’t hide from it…it is your path.
Don’t waste your time lamenting about the darkness that shouldn’t be there,
because the only way you wouldn’t have it,
is if you were totally submerged in darkness, and we all know that
nothing exists without its opposite, its analog.


Battle cry.

Battle cry.

It seems natural to seek the easy way out, to seek fairness, to frown at the looming darkness on the horizon. May we remember that all gain is preceded by conflict, and conflict is only given to Warriors.
Turn it around.
Run toward the flames.
Welcome the rain. Rise to the challenge, even if it kills you.
You’re a Warrior. It’s what you’re born for.
The storms should be fearing you.
