~Ralph Blum, The Book of Runes~
It is easy to retreat from darkness. I feel It is the fear of the unknown that really frightens us. I know this from my ability to skedaddle at a moments notice when darkness comes to call. The real challenge in any situation is to hold still and allow the darkness to unfold around you. We tend to think that the darkness will consume us. That is not true. If we could see the brightness of our own Being we would no longer be afraid of the dark. We would never be afraid of anything again.
I ask my Guidance how do we recognize our own light? Be still my child, you are so often running around, consumed by busyness that beingness can not be found. Beingness, light, love are all within you. Your fear keeps you from your knowing. Be still. Being still does not mean holding yourself tightly so that you can not breathe. All things come to you on the breath. All love, all light, everything comes to you when you breathe.
