The twilight side of the heart


“One of the greatest treasures in the world is a contented heart. When we befriend the twilight side of the heart, we discover a surer tranquillity where the darkness and the brightness of our lives dwell together. We gain the courage to search out where the real thresholds in life are, the vital frontiers, the parts of our life that we have not yet experienced….[We] are no longer afraid of the unknown….We learn to befriend our complexity and see the dance of opposition within us not as…negative or destructive…but as an invitation to a creative adventure.” —John O’Donohue, Beauty: The Invisible Embrace
