Consider this line from A Course in Miracles: “What is kept apart from love cannot share its healing power because it has been separated off and kept in darkness.”
What and who do we keep apart from love?
Each one represents a “speck of darkness” that we want to keep hidden within ourselves. A fear that we’re not quite ready to release.
But once we are ready to finally let go of our burdens, we can bring each of these grievances to the light of love and watch them dissipate into nothingness.
