If you fight the dark within, you tear yourself asunder, split yourself in two. Don’t begin a holy war within… Love the dark in yourself! Honour it. Hold it gently. Flood it with the light of love. Illuminate those wounded parts, those sore and tender regions of your ancient heart. The darkness within you only longs for the light, and the light within you longs to touch the darkness.
