No Power

My niece wrote a blog about a recent power failure in their area. Upon contemplation, i wrote her this reply:

Darkness allows us a chance to meditate. The loss of power should be considered a blessing for it gives us the opportunity for deep meditation. Darkness and silence are factors to see the pathway to true enlightenment. When one is in deep meditation, the physical discomforts vanish like the stars upon the entrance of the majestic sun.
Love. Simplicity. Meditation. Three keys to the Pathway to Enlightenment. These are based on the Three Jewels of the Tao: Humility, Moderation and Love. The Tao and the Pathway are similar, if not one and the same.
