He hath led me, and brought me into darkness, but not into light.Whether God leads us toward or away from the light, it is dependent on his mood. When he is feeling happy and merciful, he leads us toward it, but when he's pissed off, he leads us away from it. God sure is one emotional dude.
~ King James version ~
Therefore the sage takes care of all men
And abandons no one.
He takes care of all things
And abandons nothing.
This is called "following the light."
~ from Verse 27 of the Tao Te Ching ~
Tao, which is devoid of emotion and desire, always leaves the light on for us. It is our choice alone whether we will walk toward it or away from it.
