Mindful Monday: “To know the dark, go dark.”

To Know The Dark
by Wendell Berry

To go in the dark with a light is to know the light.
To know the dark, go dark. Go without sight,
and find that the dark, too, blooms and sings,
and is traveled by dark feet and dark wings.


Sometimes during meditation, dark things from our lives arise.
To know the dark, go dark in the present moment.
