Reading and learning about “our strange weather” also known as climate change, has been challenging both emotionally and intellectually, to say the least. When I was leafing through The Book of Symbols, Reflections on Archetypal Images this passage caught my eye and really spoke to me —”But the depth of owl’s wisdom includes not only the ability to bring what is dark into the light, but also the ability to live in the dark itself.”
Maybe sometimes we have to go through the darkness to get to the light? Kind of like my person above. A really great post that goes into more depth about this can be found on the site Common Dreams.
