Even the thing we call a blacklight (I know you have one in your room for your Iron Butterfly poster) isn’t actually one. It doesn’t actually turn things dark.
When I turn my daughters bedroom light on, the darkness doesn’t refuse to go away.
In reality, darkness never wins.
The only way we can get darkness is by shielding the light. Which means darkness isn’t a thing. It’s a non-thing. An absence of a thing called light.
This is what spirit means to me.
There’s no such thing as anti-spirit. There is no dark force in the world.
This means those shadows aren’t real.
It’s just us standing in front of the light again.
