God guides us

on the

long way round.

And sometimes that



through a dark wood.

It doesn’t mean

we’re lost,


The darkness

is part

of the trip.

Too many of us


in the dark.

We don’t understand

that it is

a holy dark

and that the

idea is

to surrender to it

and journey through

to real light.
