(Poustinia Journal, 11/24/2012)
I appreciate the vividness of the Colors of the Creation and the mystical, luminous White Light. These are the colors of completion.
I am fascinated by the Gray. It is the chaos of metamorphosis and transformation; of the disintegration prerequisite for evolution; the yet unformed and forming that will eventually emerge into the vivid Colors of Creation. Gray is the color of becoming.
I am seduced by the awesome mysteries of the Black. I fear that in entering its depths, I may be lost forever. However, it promises me “incomparable light” if I willingly go there — not just for myself, but for others. Black is the Color of Mystery.
I accept the invitation.
