When all the lights go out within, there is a stillness to be sought. I feel them go out and struggle against it, worrying and sweating to resist.

And someone says: just hold still. And I do that.

I choose a passionate life, it's true, and I choose an inner calm.

Letting the darkness overcome when it will is the only way to make it take its leave again. And so I wait.

Great post! Sometimes that passionate life and the inner calm can really fight each other! But great to achieve!
