A Long Way to Go - Kontemplartimo
“Sometimes in life, you find yourself being in a certain situation that makes your soul suffer. First, you just can't, nor would you even want to accept it. You might try to deny it and hide in the dark corners of your inner self. But after all, these detours won't get you anywhere helpful. The true key to get you out of this maze of dark emotions and suffering, is acceptance. But acceptance is a progress and takes time and patience - you could never really fake it. So: you got to be brave and take the long way through foggy and desolate wastelands in order to find clarity, acceptance and finally: inner peace.”

Somewhat hesitating between clarity being a good thing (warm light, symbol of knowledge and truth) and ignorance of it (truth can sometimes be crual, knowledge can be a burden...) remaining in the darkness can sometimes look like a better option, this "in between position" allows the traveller to observe and decide if he realy wants to go further, or remain in his friendly full of life darknesses.”
