This week I would like to talk about the light & the darkness. You may find yourself wondering what in the world light & darkness have to do with any of my blogs. All my entries are Essential Oils, Yoga & Meditation
Let me explain. On my journey I have joined different Forums relating to Yoga, Meditation & Essential Oils. Today I received an email from one of them, advising of a new posting. I read the summary of it & decided I wished to provide my viewpoint. When I arrived at the original post I saw someone had left a message.
My immediate impression of the response was how much darkness surrounded it. There was some truth, but with so much darkness a person could miss it. I felt sad for both the Seeker of enlightenment & the darkness.
I read the words of the Seeker & I did see the struggle to leave the darkness. It is a delicate subject & the Seeker was attempting to come from a place of love. The Seeker has lived with certain notions, notions the darkness has promoted since the dawn of time. These notions have become the “truth”. The Seeker has now ventured out & is finding that the “known” truth is not always truth.
This is my own journey as well. Stepping into Yoga, Meditation & yes, even Essential Oils I have found my own mind opening. I am learning how much in the darkness I have been living. And when my journey out of it started, the darkness tried to pull me back. It still does to this day.
I know now, looking back, I brought the darkness with me in many situations. Now that I am turning to & living more in the light I see where I where I can bring more of the same to other Seekers. I believe we have a duty to shine the light into the darkness.
I believe that as Seekers of Enlightenment we will, inevitably, be finding the light*. And once found, will turn to shine it for others on the path. We will learn to see the light breaking through the new Adventurer & we will respond with Light. * or - “…inevitably, find the Light…”
But until we learn to leave the darkness behind, we will discourage brave, new Seekers. The darkness will attempt to beat you back.
My words for you today are to stay strong in your quest for Enlightenment. Be bold when looking at the darkness. Know that the darkness is frightened, it knows it will not survive true Enlightenment & needs your own fear to continue. Be assured that as long you move towards Enlightenment you will triumph.
In your journey to Enlightenment you will learn to come from a place of love. You will learn how to ask in light & reply in light. You will find you have the opportunity to help another toward the light.
Shine your light, my friends. Light is not for hiding under a basket, but for lighting the way. We may not be able to see very far with the light, but the light can be seen from very far away. So hold your own Light high & chase out the darkness. Every light counts.
Til next we meet, Be Blessed
