Stop running from your darkness. Stop letting your fears blind you to what desperately wants to be seen. Look into your shadows. Find your center and remain still. Stay present. Stay brave. Stay aware. Stay true and wait.
Just as the sun will rise again in the morning, so also will love rise up to meet you there, in your murky back alleys where hide your deepest wounds.
Have courage, dear one, and watch – as surely as the seasons turn, love will usher in a new dawn, bathing your battlefields in forgiveness, and planting wings where there once were chains.
