To defeat the darkness is to make friends with the darkness. The darkness cannot go away, but you can acknowledge it and let it come and let it go. Your entire existence has different shades of light and dark. But, the moment you judge your many different phases of existence, you suppress and then it consumes you and makes you go and seek substance to escape the substance of the darkness. This is when your demons dictate your being, by making you feed them and harming you.
There are things we know and things we do not know, when things unknown rise, we feel afraid... afraid of things that cannot be seen, touched, or controlled through a solid foundation. Some things just have to be FELT, and that's all it needs for it to transit in and out the body. Go follow @la_passionate
