white light and balance

12.19.14.7.9 8 Muluc 17 Zotz
File this under "something to think about" (ie, "Thoughts" in my tag cloud).
The vast majority of my friends are pagans or pagan-friendly. In rituals, meditations and so forth, many of them (with one exception) are inordinately fond of flinging around "white light" and "white light protection" and also emphasizing they do "good" works only.
And that is all fine and good. I don't use "black light" or do evil nor I am I suggesting you do so.
However, I do believe in balance. Ironically, so do all my friends who love their white light protection. They think that adding more white light makes the universe a better place. . . but if all things are in balance...what balances out all their extra white light?
Years ago, I switched to "Clear light." Clear light doesn't have the polarity of white light. It is all colors, all things, and therefore can be what it needs to be when it needs to be that. You need red? It's there, in the clear. You need black? (and sometimes, you do, and not just to see if there are cat pee stains on your clothes)--it's there.

Anyway, I don't have an answer to this, like so many things I talk about. It's just meant to provoke conversation and thought.

i wonder if this is why there is a rise in Crowlites. the light and black trying to balance each other. honestly either have their draw backs, and the idea of clear is a neat one, I had never come across it before.
