Perhaps we are only afraid of the dark because we have forgotten or become somewhat separated from OUR LIGHT!?!
Imagine yourself, walking through a forest during the day. You see and hear birds and little creatures living their lives ... seeking food, sunlight, shelter. Perhaps you feel a kinship or peace within nature and you feel so alive "in nature".
As the sun begins to set, beautiful shafts of light make their way toward you. You notice that golden hue and accept the sun's "goodnight" kiss.
