What’s Darkness? Light!

One of the most comforting ideas I seem to constantly encounter in Chabad Torah teachings is that there really is no such a thing as darkness. Darkness is merely suppressed light.

In fact, the stronger the light, the more it is capable of suppressing itself. Just like only a diamond is strong enough to cut a diamond, so too only light is strong enough to hide light.

When I read these teachings, I feel connected to everything. The only possible excuse for disconnection is darkness. But if all is light, the excuse vanishes and my heart feels continuous with all.
