light and shadow - a poem

We are seeing the best and worst of humanity because we are all being squeezed by the realities of the pandemic and quarantine. But this is just a magnification of what is true in every moment of every day. We each get the opportunity to choose light or shadow in every minute. It is a choice. It is possible to choose. It is all about consciousness and awareness. Those who choose light are bringing wholeness, healing, joy, care, togetherness, love, peace. Those who are choosing shadow are bringing separation, fear, destructiveness, anger, hatred, selfish ambition. The paths are separate but the road between the two is easily accessible and we can always change. Only you can decide which path you’re going to choose, and let’s be clear – whether consciously or not – you have already been choosing.


We are at every moment

facing two choices

- light or shadow.

Be clear that only you

can decide which path to take.

Be clear that you have

already been choosing.

Be clear that you

can always choose

to change paths.
