Making the Darkness Conscious

One does not become enlightened
by imagining figures of light,
but by making the darkness conscious.

Carl Jung

Of Note: I missed my sister Marie's Texas sunset pictures so found this one from her trip to Galveston this summer. As it turns out, Galveston may get hit in the impending landfall of Hurricane Ike which is barreling across the Gulf. As to this quote by Jung, one could argue that it would be better to leave well enough alone as far as darkness is concerned. But at a deeper level, this is paradoxically just what goes on when one becomes enlightened.

Today's Weather Report: It was the usual, cool and cloudy, at first but has blossomed into a fall-tinged, sunny day. Fall has a feeling to it that no other season does--must have to do with the angle of the sun.
