He closed the door. There stood the rat. Time ticked. And then the door to the bathroom opened. The light was on. It shined on the rat. But it wasn't a rat. It wasn't even alive.
There are so many unpleasant and fearful things we imagine, and there are so many unpleasant and fearful things we ignore from our own personalities. These unpleasant and fearful aspects of ourselves can be monstrous or not so much. But we will not know until we shine a light on them.
Today is a good day to illumine that which we fear so much. By shining a light on those shadow forms, we disempower the shadow and empower ourselves. You may find that the giant, evil, hairy, scary rat is nothing but a bundle of dirty beach clothes.
