Before you can see the light, you have to deal with the darkness.

Space to live

Without silence, there would be no sound. Without emptiness, there would be no fulfillment.

When you sense emptiness what you are really feeling is the ability to create. It is not a lack or an absence, but an opportunity.

The empty spaces in your life give you space to live. The empty spaces are yours to fill with joy, with love, with meaning and fulfillment.

The silence gives you opportunity to speak, to express life in your own unique way. The darkness gives you a place to shine your own special light.

An empty moment is truly a treasure. For it is yours to fill with meaning, with life.

When nothing is there, everything is possible. Take that opportunity, and make it into something great.

— Ralph Marston
