The journey to Self and the path of awakening means something very different to each soul; we are unique, and, as unique beings, our perceptions and understandings are personal to us; the Truth that we carry is not necessarily the same Truth as anyone else. Yet, does this mean that others are wrong and we are right, or is the opposite true?
When we take the path of Truth within, we become aware of our own inner battleground; that place within, where heart and head frequently clash, and where we can struggle to find unity with the polarities of life. Light and Dark are one such polarity, and we can spend so long focused on these polarities that we lose sight of the bigger picture. Sometimes, we get lost in trying to understand life; we look for answers, solutions and resolutions, as we seek out a rationale for our existence.
Such quests are an innate part of being human, but as we continue to awaken, it seems that we are being faced with the realisation that sometimes there is no answer. It is all too easy to see the ‘problem’ as an outside force: the job, the relationship, the income etc., but when we open up to Truth, we can see that seeking the answer is no longer important, for we realise that until we find balance within ourselves, we will continue to struggle to find understanding in other aspects of our lives.
As we loosen the shackles of the mind and stop dragging the chains of sacrifice, suffering and heartache, we can begin to widen our perspectives. Being human, it is often so hard to move beyond the inner battleground, and very often this is the reason for clinging to Light, for it takes us away from the pain that we perceive in the Dark, and yet, until we merge the two in Divine Union, we cannot grow, evolve, learn or fully awaken.
When we look beyond ourselves for the answers or the solutions, we loosen the connection that we have within, to both our Selves, and our Divinity. We are Divine, and as Divine Sparks, it is important to honour all aspects of our Selves. Sometimes this involves letting go of perceptions and ideals, and sometimes this can mean self-forgiveness. The latter may seem a little strange, but, on the whole, most of us spend so long putting ourselves under pressure to do more, be more and have more, that we continually put ourselves down and run ourselves ragged. When we open up to Truth and open up to truly forgiving ourselves, we open up to Love.
In many ways, we can see Love as the unification of Dark and Light, for Love is a powerful force that weaves into the hearts and souls of us all. Whilst some push this away, others are opening up to the true majesty and magnificence of what Love brings. Love is a state of Being, and it goes beyond trying to chase dreams or being warriors of Light, for Love allows us to live fully consciously in the present moment, connected to our Divinity and beyond denial, storylines and polarities.
It is time to move beyond fear, beyond the fear of being hurt, of being rejected, of not fitting in, of not being enough; of life, and instead open up fully to the process of living and of being alive.
Part of this process involves opening up to the healing power of the darkness as sometimes we need to let go of the drive to illuminate the darkness or to push it away; sometimes, we need to go into the darkness and let our eyes adjust. Life is created in the darkness of the womb; we are incubated in the womb and this is where we receive nourishment. We therefore need to expand our understanding of the Dark in order to let go of the resistance and to instead be open to the inspiration that lies at its core.
If we see ourselves as seedlings planted in the rich, fertile and dark soil, and, in time, with the right cultivation, we know that we will burst forth into the Light. Yet, we do not leave the Dark behind us, for without our roots, we wither and die. Therefore it is time to honour the balance and to rediscover the Truth of our foundations.
So, it seems that we are now moving beyond the charge of the Light Workers to a more powerful and majestic flow of inner Unity, strength and Love...
