Corinne Edwards Interviews: The Light Inside the Dark (John Tarrant) – Part 2 (1999)
For everyone who has experienced their own dark night of the soul, The Light Inside The Dark, by Dr. John Tarrant, is perhaps one of the most beautiful poetic writings of solace and inspiration during that time. An intense reality that Dr. Tarrant makes accessible is the fact that people have periods in their lives where they are absolutely immobilized by pain.
When sad or harsh things happen, they're the black earth we have to plant something in, and that black earth is actually very rich. When we open our hearts during such raw times and love without kid gloves, it relieves our guilt and bridges our withholding, gives us a peace, kindness, equanimity to be and to connect fully as we are beyond circumstance.
