A person stands on its shadow and wonder why it's dark. As Jr. Martin Luther King said,"everything that we see is a shadow cast by that which we do not see". Within each of us is a world of light and sound that responds to the pulses and energy of the past, the present and future. this Martin's quotes the fact that we have been influenced by our environment, the people who have affected our lives and the generations of coherent and non-coherent change over time. the life energy is something you carry with yourself. this quote actually means that we only see a small bit of what is going on.think about it, if we see a shadow of something that is bigger than everything that we know then it must be huge.
