Reflecting on Good and Evil during Lent
As a child growing up, we were told to "think about our sins and ask forgiveness." At seven, I took this task so seriously. I cried at night for fear of living forever in hell. However, as I grew older, I began to see that, like Gibran explains below, we all have good within us.
Like the Yin/Yang symbol, that shows a dark spot in the center of the pure, white half, and a bright white spot in the center of the dark half, each of us has our problems and within the darkest heart, there is still a spark of goodness.
Blessings to those who celebrate this Lenten season!
