Darkness. (with Rilke)


Darkness approaches
Settling a blackness
As light fades..
Forms melt away
In pervasive darkness..

Darkness in midpassage..

Darkness is turning
On an inward path
On which darkness melts
Dropping disguises which
Conceal the light... 

Rupert Spira...The Finite Mind is Limited but Consciousness is Unlimited

You darkness, that I come from,
I love you more than all the fires
that fence in the world,
for the fire makes
a circle of light for everyone,
and then no one outside learns of you.
But the darkness pulls in everything:
shapes and fires, animals and myself,
how easily it gathers them! —
powers and people —
and it is possible a great energy
is moving near me.
I have faith in nights.
~ Rainier Maria Rilke
