When I meditate I sink into the darkness that is always there.
Like a warm blanket enveloping me;
A place of refuge;
Healing, nourishing and forgiving.
Looking back down my own eyes I find the unconditioned;
Unborn, immortal, unformed;
It’s always there, a refuge.
My body, emotions and thoughts are formed from it;
Like a wave rising from the sea and returning to it;
And whilst a wave it is still the sea.
You have to bring light from darkness and when it is extinguished, you realise the darkness was always there.
Never be afraid of the dark.
