Quote of the Day

Wednesday, February 13, 2008
Evil is like a shadow—it has no real substance of its own, it is simply a lack of light. You cannot cause a shadow to disappear by trying to fight it, stamp on it, by railing against it, or any other form of emotional or physical resistance. In order to cause a shadow to disappear, you must shine light on it.

-Shakti Gawain, teacher and author (b. 1948)

Ha - very cryptic and enlightening post MHA. And applicable to so many facets of life. Any particular story behind it... or was it just a truth that suddenly rose up and smacked you upside the head :)
