“Transit umbra, lux permanet.”

“Transit umbra, lux permanet” (The shadow passes; the light remains)

I found this quote in latin the other day on Pinterest. Of course, not knowing latin it didn’t have any meaning for me. That is until I read the English translation. “The shadow passes, the light remains.” I loved it. It reminds me of the saying, “This too shall pass” which I always pretty much attributed to one of the trite sayings you hear repeatedly in the rooms of recovery. It wasn’t until many, many years of recovery and experiencing a true dark night of the soul that I became aware of how much peace this statement brought to me and the deep spiritual reality of it. Of course, just saying the statement brings a momentary comfort and not much else- it is only the deep soul work that I engage in that brings the healing through a psychic change (paradigm shift). However, it is so important to have these little reminders show up in their own perfect time.
