Reprieve

He had wondered if the Darkness would ever leave him. He asked, to no one in particular, about Consciousness, and if it was hostile – so impersonal – devour[ing] to survive (so it is, so it’s always been). Or, perhaps, Consciousness was indifferent, neutral at best?

He struggled within himself to find where the Darkness had been hiding all this time, and how he had managed to let it go unnoticed for so long.

Lost as I may be
In the fog of my own noise and triviality
Grand Holy Mother, grant me clarity
I am standing on the edge of forever … forever…

One among infinity
Witnessing the majesty
Calm in this humility
Witnessing the majesty
Hope as far as one can see
Witnessing the majesty
Standing on the edge of forever

Blessed be
This reawakening
Grand Holy Mother, end my deathly slumber
To stand fearless on the edge of forever…

One among infinity
Witnessing the majesty
Calm in this humility
Witnessing the majesty
Hope as far as one can see
Witnessing the majesty
Standing on the edge of forever

Hope as far
As one can see
As one can see

~Puscifer – Grand Canyon

He learned that the Darkness was there to teach him. He had been fighting the lesson for so long, and he now understood.

The Darkness was not an enemy, a foe waiting to be vanquished by the Light, but a part of Being waiting to be embraced. It was there to hold space and to add balance to the Light, the backdrop to the beauty of Light.

He didn’t need to succumb to the Darkness, but he did need to stop fighting it. He would learn by stepping through [his] shadow, stretching up and over [him], [so that he could] soften this old armor.

Chaos and order,
Darkness and Light,
Yin and Yang,
Feminine and Masculine,
Consciousness observing
And teaching
That balance is found by
Embracing what may be
Behold! Reprieve
