My belief is that darkness is the other side of light and together they make a whole. Without darkness the day would be incomplete. Yin requires yang to be a complete whole. I believe we are always dreaming and it's primarily in darkness when asleep that we see our dreams. Similarly,stars are always there, and it's only in darkness that we see them. One night in Zion National Park I embraced the darkness and saw an incredible beautiful star-filled sky because of the darkness and clean air. I embrace the nightwhen I'm outside because it gives me the opportunity to see the stars which enhances my feeling part of the cosmos and enhances my awe. Other reasons I embrace the night include that life seems to slow down during the night, I'm tired from the day and ready to relax and have a good night's sleep, I enjoy feelings of gratitude that arise, I look forward to dreams that may surprise me, and I get to lay down next to the lady I love.
