The Darkness before the Dawn

Karen Berg
February 16, 2015

There is a prayer called Shacharit that kabbalists say in the morning. Shacharit means “darkness,” but why would a morning prayer be called darkness? Wouldn’t it be more appropriate to call it Light? Or sun? Or morning? I mean, what’s the secret here?

What we learn is that the prayer is called darkness is because it represents the darkness before the dawn. The more chaos we see outside and the more dust that is shaken out of the carpet, so to speak, the closer we are coming to the end of this darkness.

But the only thing that we can change to counterbalance the darkness that we see out there is our own consciousness – our ability to be servants of the Light of the Creator. Each and every one of us needs to become a soldier of the Light, for that is how we will be able to usher in a new dawn.
