This is just the beginning

This is the beginning of a beautiful life. All beauty requires ugliness, without it we wouldn't know what is beautiful. We have to see what we'd rather not, because if we don't, we can't appreciate what we are constantly seeing. If we are surrounded by sound, it makes us appreciate the silence. If we are surrounded by darkness, it makes us cling to the light.

Light is more than the absence of darkness. Light is the presence of something infinite, and beautiful, and blinding, and something that we can feel. It's the presence of tears of joy. When light shines, love and life and happiness and sorrow mingle. When light shines, the road ahead is full of opportunities. When light shines, our shadow is behind us, not ahead. When light shines. Light shines. Shines.


  1. Yes, yes, and an ever-increasing yes. This is our world. This is humanity.

  2. This is probably one of the most amazing posts ever. Ditto, all of it ;)

  3. "And all at once the crowd begins to sing,
    "Sometimes we'd never know what's wrong without the pain. Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same.""
