Light and Darkness

Beware of "all or nothing" thinking. 

Do not waste time on hating people, your church or country, or anything that has disappointed you.  You can become so upset with the dark side of things that you never discover how to put the dark and light together, which is the heart of wisdom, all love, and the trademark of spiritual growth.

Light a candle.  Bless the light and the darkness.
