An allegory, compliments of Susun Weed and her website.

"Truly, it is in the darkness that one finds the light, so when we are in sorrow, then this light is nearest of all to us."
― Meister Eckhart

When I contemplate Eckhart's quote, above, I am often reminded that fear - especially existential fear - and sorrow are often synonyms.

We are as light to one another. This mystically inclined atheist says "blessed be" to all.
