the balance

i find myself returning to this ritual so often when I am in my dark place. it is as if being surrounded by darkness and deliberately filling it with the light of candles, of incense and sage, where a way for me to continue to remind myself of light. that even on my tenebrous days, there is always luminescence.
this ritual is a way for me to find balance between light and dark.
