It’s not just about turning off the lights.
It’s about following the part of yourself that scares you, the part that wants to run through the woods alone, late on a November night, the part that thinks it’s fun to track disembodied voices as they echo down the hall of an abandoned mental hospital, the part that thrives on the fear it both reacts to and creates.
Darkness is so much more than the things that lurk–darkness drives our deepest selves, our desires, passions, deviances. It’s the true surrender to the shadow self that lives just inside, in the oldest corners of our bones.
Get real. Get dark.
