There is a beautiful shadow on the wall. Have you ever noticed it? Have you ever noticed those tiny leaves, flowers, the distinctive net of branches on the ground? Have you ever noticed those moving shadows of people and their hands in the silent dialogues on the asphalt? All of them live in the alternative wordless world.
A shadow is a peculiar way of a reflection. A shadow is a singular reflection of the darkness. Darkness, which has each single thing around you.
Our world consists of darkness and light. We can’t reject one of them. They always go shoulder to shoulder.
Everything and everybody has its own little darkness, with its own shape and state. Our own darkness, which follows us through our whole lives, reflects our every single move and every single change in us.
When the night comes, shadows disappear. They just dissolve into the darkness, becoming part of the bigger darkness. Little darknesses hide at the great darkness, like scared kids hide in their mom’s tender hugs. You can never see the beauty of the shadow at night.
But when the morning comes and the sun shows itself to the world, it also shows the face of the world. Darkness shows only itself. It tries to absorb these tiny special darknesses and make them lost in its space. It wants you to feel shame for your inside trench and to give an “alternative solution” – come and hide here for nobody to ever see you.
Light shows both sides. It also shows the beauty and uniqueness of the dark side. It makes you feel special and beautiful the way you are. It wants the world to see you.
My beautiful friend, never be ashamed to trust your darkness to the light.
«I am the Light of the world. The person
who follows me will never live in darkness
but will have the light that gives life.»
