we cannot resolve what we cannot see

Today is the day that NASA’s New Horizons' probe will fly within 7,750 miles of Pluto, getting us an up close look at one of the furthest bodies we know of in our solar system. We’ll be able to see the closest images ever taken of the Lord of the Underworld! To me this is symbolic of humanity being ready, willing and hopefully able to take a closer look at our own shadow—collectively and personally. WE CANNOT RESOLVE WHAT WE CANNOT SEE—so for me this flyby is a metaphor we can embrace and work with consciously in our lives. It took 10 years and 3 billion  miles for New Horizons to get there--almost as long as it took me to make my way through the darkest parts of my own shadow! It is there that I also found the most precious gifts and treasures.
