introduce yourself

take everything that’s

[ .bright and beautiful in you. ]

and introduce it to

[ .the shadow side of yourself. ]

let your

altruism meet your egotism,

let your

generosity meet your greed,

let your

joy meet your grief

but when you are able to say,

“i am all of the above,

my shadow

as well as my light,”

the shadow’s power

is put in service

of the good.
