What we won’t dance with – is exactly the dance-partner we need

Winter morning light in the trees

Fixating on or trying to go toward “the Light” — as in the throes of unchecked spiritual ambition — only further endarkens us, estranging us from that in us which is subterranean, wounded, misshapen, wretched, or otherwise unwanted. What we won’t dance with, what we refuse intimacy with, what we’re so ambitious to shed, is precisely the dance-partner we need — or at least need to approach — drawing forth from us the very aversion, tension, and pain that’s crying out for illumination and love. ~ Robert Augustus Masters
