For a moment now the earths stands still before it turns back toward the light. It is so profoundly elemental, the balance between dark and light. Many religions see the world as an eternal balancing between dark and light, the forces of destruction and creation, life and death each leading into the other in an eternal cycle. It behooves us to give what energy we can to the side of light through kindness, decency and respect for all life.
