The Door Is Open

Updated on March 2, 2010

 Have you ever walked in the night? Reveled in the silence of muffling shadows? Drifted through the garden of dreams? Caught the shreds of consciousness as moths to be devoured by the light?

You should

Hidden away, beyond the shade of the street lights, the pale luminescence of the stars, & the fog of moonlight is a gate fashioned iron wrought subtlety. It beckons & only those empty of expectations may pass through it.

The door is open

(that twinge as you touch the burner, the cold alien sensation as the needle slides into flesh (that perverse parody of copulation), the moment of unreason as your hands circle another’s throat, the only thought pounding through your brain, “it will all go away if I don’t hear breathing anymore”, that flash of assurance as the tumblers only you hear fall into place)

(Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
One Absolute - Manifest, Eternal Destroyer of Darkness Grace Incarnate … on One Immortal Being, repeat the name Waheguru (Wondrous Destroyer of darkness).
Then the LORD said to Moses, "Stretch out your hand toward the sky so that darkness will spread over Egypt—darkness that can be felt."
guun is illusion connected with energy and activity; Tamo guun relates to darkness and inertia and Sato guun is illusion due to purity and light. Raajas, the quality of energy and activity; Taamas, the quality of darkness and inertia
For countless ages there was utter darkness; No earth, no sky, only God's will
man/woman; night/day; birth/death; youth/old age; sunlight/darkness; earth/sky and sorrow/happiness etc. Akal Purakh has established this mean
God is the Life of life, the Death of death, the Darkness of darkness, the Light of light.
Is it that there is darkness in the presence of God and he needs lamps?
Although I could not see anything due to the pitch darkness of the night, I sensed some activity in the trees. He sang about light. He sang about darkness that enveloped me. He sang about the world within. He sang about sorrow
A Sikh always lights a candle rather than cursing darkness. A Sikh does not worry about us/them/me/it, but cognitively connects with people at a universal level.
These are the commandments the LORD proclaimed in a loud voice to your whole assembly there on the mountain from out of the fire, the cloud and the deep darkness; and he added nothing more. Then he wrote them on two stone tablets and gave them to me.
Only then shall you obtain the Immaculate Lord amidst the darkness of the world.
your intellect is stained with darkness; you are held in the grip of Shakti's power.
Here the Lord of Light is in a subordinate place and is wounded by the Lord of Darkness. But the injury is not fatal; it is only a hindrance
He did, in the age of darkness, perform the supreme sacrifice.
And the night when it covers with darkness...)

 Darkness: that which we can not perceive. Beyond the boundaries of perception it lies, within and without. To only accept that which we see, hear, touch, smell, reason is to deny one of our greatest strengths-darkness. The realm where reason stops, where senses fail; that abode we’re told to ignore, to not speak of. The space beyond, where shadows bleed, their words denied, there is no light. Darkness. There is a beauty to be found as mankind goes mad in the denial of this essence (as it presses upon and through us). The shadow at the edge of our vision, the indefinable creature at our feet. In darkness…it is from here they speak. Do you hear them?
Oh, you will
