Edvard Munch-The Scream
Don' t be afraid of the dark - for there's light there. And as the great German had it, we have to carry abit of chaos in us for a star to be born.
Once more you' ve lost yourself in the dream-struggles of the mind. The blinding light baffles your mind, you never quite know where you' ll find yourself next.
Once more will your soul soar faraway cities and lands. But the surrounding darkness will never cease accompanying you.
After all, what is there to be afraid of?For this also forms part of you. Blessing and curse, mother and sister. Don't be afraid of the dark. Indeed, there's light to be found there. A light not yet discovered. In a little while this same light will become the path that marks an entire lifetime. The most beautiful and the ugliest are also born small. On the way they grow greater.
But there will always be a glimpse of you in the dark and this might very well turn into stardust resting on the breath of time.
Perhaps you'll never know. Perhaps you'll come to experience everything you dreamed of. Perhaps you'll go cursed and despairing, perhaps glorified. What you should never forget is that there's light in the dark. And the examples are indeed many. And the hours infinite. And eternity will gaze at you a speck of dust.
In the dark you'll come to find your profoundest reflections. It's up to you whether you'll bear to look them in the eye. In the end,whatever you do, whatever happens, you should never stoop down to fear. What's certain is that you don't know what you'll find in the midst of this age-old battle between you and time.
Don't feel bad, don't feel cursed. This same course is what makes it possible for you to escape insignificance. It's what fills your whole being. It's the light that's always to be found in the dark. Don't only look at everything visible, but elsewhere as well. If you draw black veil, you' ll see that the view behind the balcony window is mesmerizing.
And it shows to you everything you never believed you'd see. And it shows to you new worlds, known only to the few. There's also the dark to find behind the curtain. If even for a momment you are overcome with fear, you'll never know the dreamlike world hidden beneath.
And the time will certainly come when night will draw to a close, when the sun shows itself. Thus one day the dark will be no more, offering a viw to the light. Never forget that the dark is not to be feared.
No matter how many centuries make their way past as, no matter how many years brush past all being, there will always be light to be found in the dark, and a bit of chaos will always give birth to dancing stars...
