“There are no shadows in darkness. Shadows are created by light, and only exist in the presence of light. Refusing to acknowledge our shadow leads us to deny the presence of light in us.” Franco Santoro
“One realized all sorts of things. The value of an illusion, for instance, and that the shadow can be more important than the substance. All sorts of things.” Jean Rhys, Quartet
“How can I be substantial if I do not cast a shadow? I must have a dark side also If I am to be whole.” C.G. Jung
Don’t ignore your dark side, pretending it doesn’t exist, or hide it like some secret shame. On the other hand, there is no need to give it free rein over your life but simply accept and embrace it, for it is part of who you are.
