The Darkness in our hearts 2 Hey fellas! Lately I've been thinking a lot about light and darkness in people's hearts and how individuals are not completely one or the other. It's like when you meet a person who's all rainbows and magic but you're not buying that personality and that makes you feel like that individual has a dark side. Well, I think we all have some darkness in us, and that doesn't make us evil or anything like that, it just balances out our personality. It's like a coin, you need both sides in order for it to have value; one side's not enough.

I'm tying this with September's theme (eternal summer) by thinking that eternity (in itself) has to have light and darkness to be eternal. Sounds a bit weird and redundant but I think it's true. Balance is required everywhere, at all times, for things to endure. That's how the journey to having something eternal involves looking at the situation from all its different sides, to take both the light and darkness in our hearts and make something out of it.

It was weird that said duality became apparent in these photos after I started toying with that idea in my head. I'm wearing mostly black but the sunset is casting off some light, creating an effect that not only is nice but it's also powerful. I think that you need to embrace the darkness in your heart to appreciate the light; that darkness propels to create, to fight and to conquer situations in life. The balance between the darkness and light in your heart is what makes our emotions and thoughts feel eternal.

// ¡Hey amigos! Últimamente he pensado mucho en la luz y obscuridad en el corazón de las personas y cómo los individuos no son totalmente ni una ni la otra. Es como cuando conoces a una persona que es arcoiris y mariposas pero no le crees por completo y eso te hace sentir que tal persona tiene un lado obscuro. Bien, yo creo que todos tenemos algo de obscuridad dentro, y eso no nos hace malos o algo así, sólo balancea nuestra personalidad. Es como una moneda, necesitas los dos lados para que tenga valor, un lado no es suficiente.

Estoy conectando esto con el tema de septiembre (verano eterno) al pensar que la eternidad (en sí misma), tiene que tener luz y obscuridad para ser eterna. Suena un poquito raro y redundante pero creo que es verdad. El equilibrio es necesario en todos lados, todo el tiempo, para que las cosas permanezcan. Así es cómo el viaje a tener algo eterno involucra ver las situaciones de todos los lados posibles, tomando la luz y obscuridad en nuestros corazones y haciendo algo con eso.

Fue raro que dicha dualidad se volvió aparente en estas fotos después de que jugué con esta idea en mi cabeza. Estoy usando casi todo negro pero la puesta del sol emana un poco de luz, creando un efecto que no sólo es agradable, también poderoso. Creo que necesitamos abrazar la obscuridad en nuestro corazón para apreciar la luz; dicha obscuridad impulsa a crear, a luchar y conquistar situaciones en la vida. El balance entre la luz y la obscuridad en nuestros corazones es lo que hace que nuestros pensamientos y emociones se sientan eternos.
