Thich Nhat Hahn: No Mud, No Lotus

A Commonplace Book

According to the creation story in the biblical book of Genesis, God said, “Let there be light.” I like to imagine that light replied, saying, “God, I have to wait for my twin brother, darkness, to be with me. I can’t be there without the darkness.” God asked, why do you need to wait? Darkness is there.” Light answered, “In that case, then I am also already there.”
