“Nations, like stars, are entitled to eclipse. All is well, provided the light returns and the eclipse does not become endless night. Dawn and resurrection are synonymous. The reappearance of the light is the same as the survival of the soul.”
I would argue that human beings are also entitled to eclipse. Sometimes when in crisis, when the dark night of the soul is upon us, we feel that we cannot bear another moment. Yet that’s when the light comes in and shines brighter than ever before.
