There’s too much confusion and misinformation out there regarding Dark energy workings, not helped by media portrayals from The Craft to Harry Potter’s “Protection from the Dark Arts” teachers. “Dark” does not automatically mean evil, bad, or nasty. It can just mean “Dark.” “Light” and “Dark” are just two of many dualities in the Universe – e.g., Ying/Yang, Birth/Death, Female/Male. Together, they form a natural balance – without one, the other could not exist. Learning to responsibly work with both is required by many traditions and recommended to make you a better Witch.
There’s no such thing as duality. There are only continuums. Dualities are overly simplified either/ors. Continuums and all their grey areas and color shifts are the real challenge, because they shake us out of the safe place where the answer is “yes” or “no”, and place us into a much more complex and uncertain set of circumstances ruled by both/and/all/many/none.
There is more than male and female.
There is more than dark and light.
There is more than birth and death.
And for the record, it’s “yin”, not “ying”.
