"Earning knowledge is by sharing it with ISC and we will rectify our mistakes."
By facing light, we cannot get rid of our shadow. Ironically enough by facing light, we will invariably be followed by our shadow. To get rid of shadow completely, we will have to remain in dark, totally avoiding light.
Is shadow that bad?
Let us encourage each other in sharing knowledge.
I was reminded of a poem by R L Stevenson,The line are" I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me,
He is very like me from the heels up to the head, "
Here a child is very happy to see his shadow grow and dimnish at different hours of the day, he becomes very playful with his shadow.
The poem continues-
"The funniest thing about him is the way he likes to grow....."
Lastly the shadow vanishes on a day when the sun doesn't shine.
Probably the poet too wants to convey the same in a positive way.
We need not worry that the shadow is following us. The shadow is not a bad issue. It is good if you are good. If you are bad it will be bad only. so you should do good only and see that you need not get afraid of seeing your shadow.
Your response impressed me a lot rather than the content of the thread. It doesn't mean that I am under-rating the original thread which has an immense meaning to read. Both the thread content and your response,if put together would be enough to understand what is life.
Similarly in life, shadows to me are the doubts and fears we generally have about a good job, money for family, a good life. These are the greatest when we start our family lives, once we well settled, these shadows are less like around noon time.
In contrast, come our twilight years, the shadows start the lengthen, the only difference is at that point, we lose our fear for shadows because we have nothing much to lose. As the light and our lives fade and come to an end, the shadows too end. Blessed are those who learn how to live with their shadows and not dwell in it.
