Contemplation, search for truth, inner guidance
The monk sits on the hard stone floor, feeling the cool mountain air flow across his skin as he slowly inhales and exhales. For years he has sought personal enlightenment, to be at one with himself, and here in this moment he is closer than he has ever been. His emotions have often been at war within him. To find his true self, to know who he truly was, would be a blessing beyond any other that he had been granted.
He opens his eyes. He knows. He is the darkness, and all shall be consumed.
