3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
While Daughter is as unapproachable as ever, my relationship with Son grows deeper and stronger every day. I thoroughly enjoyed watching him sing at his College formal assessment and going for a couple of pints with him afterwards. Concerning nuclear family, it's a case of two out of three aint bad. I have done everything I can to make things right, and so with peace of mind I can settle for how it is.
My learning has taught me that darkness and light are closely interwoven and mutually dependent, simply the same thing differing only in polarity and degree. Which form fluorishes in your life is dependent on that which you focus. There will always be darkness in life to focus on, cultivate and strengthen if you choose to do that. The same is equally true of light.
My personal morality is no longer built on either - they are both simply energy sources to me. However, since my chosen purpose is to make a positive difference, inevitably there is more light than darkness, but I have no problem whatsoever in wielding dark energy in self-defence.
