The opposite side of light is darkness, hidden from view, both are needed for the perfect balance in life. Yin/Yang. Day and Night. Both beautiful when in balance What happens when the dark becomes so unbalanced and dense that no light filters through. The shadow self, the hidden dragon waiting to bring fire and death to whatever opposes it.. In our world at this time there is a terrible darkness where the darkness is actually winning but we have to urgently recover our light, and keep both sides in total balance.
