Look Into The Darkness to Find the Light

Motivational Power Quote

Look Into The Darkness to Find the Light

"The cave you fear to enter

holds the treasure you seek."

Joseph Campbell, author and lecturer  


As I see it. . . . . . . .

Look into the darkness to find the light   

As we seek the treasures of life we may have to look into the darkness to find the light. The things that we seek may be right in front of us but they are out of our sight.  

A people who fears to look into the darkness may find themselves missing what's in front of them and the treasures in life that they seek. Think about the person who hesitates enters a darkness of a cave. But once they muster the courage to take the leap of faith and steps into the darkness and shine the light into the darkness finds themselves surrounded with crystals.  

Crystals are beautiful to see as they grow in the darkness of a cave. The only people that will see them in their natural state are those who are willing to step into the darkness.  

Success is a lot like stepping into the darkness of a cave. Success can be right in front of us but if looking for the success to jump out at us and radiate it beams at us we may very well miss it. We have to seek success out and to step out of our comfort zone and into new areas of our lives which can create the same fear as stepping into a dark cave.   

Look into the darkness to find the light, if we want to find the crystals in our life we have to be willing to go where the crystals are.

This is beautiful.  I am always reminded that darkness is simply the absence of light.  It only takes a tiny ray of light to penetrate the darkness.   Darkness however, can never snuff out the light.

The darkness is just another path to possible success. I wonder why we fear it so much.

Very interesting. Out of the darkness comes truth, or something llike that; a kin perhaps to "when one door closes another one opens!  :)

This reminds me of the Indian Mantra:


तमसो मा ज्योतिर्गमय -  

"Tamaso mā jyotir gamaya" means "From darkness, lead me to light" 

And, Lou, you are right - Success is there.

if we want to find the crystals in our life we have to be willing to go where the crystals are.
