Do not fear the darkness, the darkness you see in the world or the darkness you find within yourself; darkness is only a longing for light, a region of the soul hungry for love, begging for love, yearning for love.
Darkness needs you, you see, needs your courage and your light, needs your warmth. It is powerless without you, and when you fight it you feed it and when you fear it you feed it.
But when you illuminate it, when you face it and drench it with understanding, it cannot be darkness any more.
Do not run from darkness and seek the light, simply be the light that you are, and the darkness will seek its own end, as surely as dawn follows night.
