Thoughts on Darkness and Duality
I am a huge believer that the reality of being humans on planet earth demands the polarity of light and dark, night and day—and if we attempt to just see the day and pretend the night doesn’t exist, we are being a little ridiculous.
Enjoy the day and the sun in addition to the dark of the night—after all, it is only in the darkness that the stars are seen. Within us, the duality of light and dark is very apparent. There is a misconception, especially in a lot of the New Age circles, that we are only supposed to see the light and never acknowledge the darkness. ” love and light and love and light…” I mean, I say that too, but that is only part of it.
We need to not only accept our darkness, but see it, taste it, merge into it and get so familiar with it that we are able to then let it go. Then the dark will allow the light shine through. If we are not looking at it, it is looking at us.
Once you know your darkness, be ok with it. Ask God to show you EVERYTHING. The reason why you are all over the place is not because of the darkness. You are waiting for acknowledgement that it is okay to be in the darkness. So I am here to tell you that it is okay to be in your darkness, just don’t make a house out of it. You’re just visiting it.
