There's an interesting - more than interesting, more like intriguing - conversation that occurs in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) has been having some disturbing dreams and thoughts. His struggle, however, has been largely internal to this point. He works up the courage to voice the inner demons that have been plaguing him to his godfather, Sirius Black, played by Gary Oldman (and, yes, in the Harry Potter series there are such things as godparents), The conversation goes like this: Harry: This connection between me and Voldemort, what if the reason for it is that I'm becoming more like him. I just feel so angry, all the time. And what if after everything I've been through, something's gone wrong inside me. What if I'm becoming bad? Sirius: I want you to listen to me very carefully, Harry. You're not a bad person. You're a very good person, who bad things have happened to. You understand?

Curse of language and Sirius.
Spot on Craig. I would prefer to put it that we must let the light out - if we take Jesus' words literally - because The kingdom of Heaven is within us. Wise words from the author of the potter series.

Interpretation of words definitely has the power to influence, even in a novel. Perhaps the authors words are wise or perhaps they disguise the worldly truth that we all have "light" in us and we, in and of ourselves, have power to draw on this light, this good, and perhaps further lead a "worthy" life that leads then to heaven or something similiar. Sometimes I fear the trouble with what may be seen as "like a truth" is that it is in fact a lie no matter how thought provoking. Yet, I hope to remain optomistic that it may lead others on a deeper quest for the real truth beyond the realm of fantasy.
