“Darkness doesn't always equate to evil, just as light doesn't always bring good!”


Kristin Cast-P.C. Cast
 I love this year's All Hallow's Grim theme, not that I don't love every year's theme. But this year it goes with one of my favorite quotes from the House of Night series, the reason I kept reading with the first book, Marked. I even recommended it to a friend who said no, but then years later started reading it and recommended it to me. To give you an idea of the book it's about vampires, but they are witches too, they are Goddess Chosen by Nyx. You can actually read my reviews on some of the series here.

The reason that this stuck with me is cause as a Pagan, a lot of my beliefs are in the dark to other religions. From that fact, we are seen in a dark light, in the darkness we meet, in the darkness we worshiped, therefore we must be evil, cause darkness is not good. There is various ways to say this, another saying is "you can't love the light without knowing the dark." But too much light can be bad for you, just as too much dark can. It's a balancing act. But it doesn't mean one is better than the other.


The Sun loved the Moon so much that he died every night for her to live.

  1. Those who equate darkness with evil show their lack of spiritual understanding.

  2. I'm kind of giggling at the fact that your friend recommended the book you had recommended before... sweet balance.

  3. We are all part of both darkness and light, those who side with one or the other are the ones out of balance. Most Pagans realise that both are need and neither are inherently evil as long as balance is maintained.

  4. Ohh love this post and the wonderful quote reminded me of a film called Ladyhawk. The dark and light both need each other to exist, a marriage of equals, dark is no more bad as light is good, and of course as you point out it all depends on where you are standing and who's judging ;)
