Sometimes we need to roll around in the mud and the muck with Kali, in order to embrace our own transformation. It is especially true in this season, the darkest time of the year, this time as we approach the Winter Solstice. When we actually remove ourselves from the glaring lights of the city, of department stores, of holiday frenetic cheer, when we find some space of isolation, we realize that the darkness is there too. When we accept the darkness, we are more ready and able to turn our gaze toward the light.
