“I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.”
—Og Mandino, 20th Century American Author
Every summer when I was young my entire family headed to Camp Indian Lake in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.
Back then, our trusty flashlights were essential tools for nighttime navigation in finding our way back to our cabins.
On clear nights with virtually no ambient light for miles, we would often turn off our torches to enjoy the spectacle of the night sky, filled with what must have been millions of stars.
The flash lights were only helpful in seeing 50 or so feet ahead. The darkness allowed us to see the light of stars, and perhaps galaxies many light years away.
Where would a greater appreciation for both the light and the darkness of life reveal even greater insight into yourself and the world?
