“Darkness is not a force it is merely the absence of light.Observe that when a light is brought to a dark place, the darkness disappears.” – Jonathan Lockwood Huie.
THE SHADES OF DARKNESS
Darkness is the absence of light. It has no intrinsic power of its own. It derives its power from the heightened state of awareness that our minds attributes to it. Nothing more.
At times the absence of light creates shadows that enhance flaws that we overlook during the day. In the photo above water from a leaky roof seems more ominous than it should be.
The darkened glass windows reflect the fading light of day. Concrete pillars might just harbor someone or something that could prove injurious to our well-being.
As you tread cautiously beneath this mall’s covered canopy your footsteps quicken and your awareness increases. Your increased sense of awareness blinds you to the fact that there is nothing there to really be afraid of.
You have allowed your state of mind to control your state of being.
