Die donkerste donker

with one comment

Hierdie foto is in Amerika se Death Valley geneem. Dit word beskou as een van die donkerste plekke in Amerika.

Dit het my laat dink aan iets wat John O’Donohue in sy boek Anam Cara: Spiritual Wisdom from the Celtic World, geskryf het:

The world rests in the night. Trees, mountains, fields and faces are released from the prison of shape and the burden of exposure. Each thing creeps back into its own nature within the shelter of the dark. Darkness is the ancient womb. Night-time is womb-time. Our souls come out to play. The darkness absolves everything; the struggle for identity and impression falls away. We rest in the night. The dawn is a refreshing time, a time of possibility and promise. All the elements of nature: stones, fields, rivers and animals are suddenly there anew in the fresh dawn light. Just as darkness brings rest and release, so the dawn brings awakening and renewal. In our mediocrity and distraction, we forget that we are privileged to live in a wondrous universe. Each day, the dawn unveils the mystery of this universe. Dawn is the ultimate surprise; it awakens us to the immense ‘thereness’ of nature. The wonderful subtle colour of the universe arises to clothe everything. This is captured in the phrase from William Blake: ‘Colours are the wounds of light.’ Colours bring out the depth of secret presence at the heart of nature.
