Seeing what needs to be done in a situation is the doorway to doing it. "Darkness is the cradle of the light." -- Rumi Before seeing is seeing not. And waiting in the darkness for the light to come on. The light comes on of itself. It is a property of light to be self-illuminating. When the time is right the light comes on. We wait in the darkness for the light to come on. Darkness is not the enemy of light, nor light of darkness. They are extensions of the other, and need each other for their own optimal existence. Light needs enough darkness to see by. No darkness at all means the light is too bright. Darkness needs light to be seen by. No light at all means the darkness too deep for life. Even bats and owls would starve to death without the creatures of the light to feed upon. We sit in the darkness waiting for the light. Emptiness. Stillness. Silence. Clarity. The formula for seeing in the darkness, and doing what needs to be done.
