Light Calling From The Abyss

“Come a little closer,” the darkness said, “I want to see your light.”

“What is there to see?” I quivered.

The darkness looked bemused and took a step back as to not frighten me so.

“Your perceptions of me are unfounded, rooted amidst desperation in trying to understand who you are.

You are as much afraid of me as you are of your light. Those heavy emotions that permeate your soul when left to despair, powerlessness, and hatred make me out to be something that I am not. I don’t fuel those emotions within you. You do. You give those emotions power over you and then project blame onto me. And all I want to do is simply help you understand the balance between your light and myself. And in order to do that, I need to get closer to you. Sometimes that may not be so comfortable, for both of us. As afraid of me as you are, I find myself a little frightened of your light too.”

Seeing how vulnerable darkness was becoming, I walked closer to it, more curious of its nature. “How could you be afraid of my light? Look at all the harm you have perpetuated throughout humanity?”

“I didn’t cause humanity to suffer. Humans and their interpretations of me, their ability to choose—that is what caused their suffering.

I have been and always will be a silent partner in the midst of creation, only ignited by what humans fear most and acted upon by misguided thoughts.

From the moment your soul felt abandoned by the Divine, you conjured up a manifestation of me to fill that void. My voice wasn’t mine anymore. It became some construct of the collective used to further separate you from yourself, humanity from its collective soul.

I search the universe, haunted by humanity’s need to make me something I am not.

I yearn to be that silent partner again in the midst of creation. To stand by your side, holding hands with your light, understanding it as much as I want to understand myself.”

I paused for a moment and then extended my hand.

Darkness, even more humbled by my offering, reached for it and came closer to me.

“I’d like to get to know you better,” I said.

“I’d like that too.” The darkness smiled.

As we held hands, our fears slowly began melting away, and the nature of the universe felt like home again.

. . .

You Are Stronger Than Your Wound

You are birthed from both light and darkness.
From the wombs of your mother
and her mother before her.
From the sins of your past and those of your lineage.
From the sacredness that has enveloped your soul
and carried you though every incarnation.

You are birthed from the rawness of innocence
and the darkest of mysteries.
From the unbridled rage that permeates collective generations
To the forgiveness that ambles gently behind it.
From the angels that hear your fervent prayers
To the demons that abscond with them.

You are birthed neither male nor female,
But of flesh, bone and blood, 
To which you have ascribed an identity
that pulls you away from that which you truly are—
A fertile energy from source,
emanating polarities of universal threads,
Encompassing good and evil.

One day, you will come to accept all that you are.

. . .

Darkness Can Evolve to Serve the Light

My prayer is that we all create a space for the darkness to birth a new way of seeing, sensing, feeling and relating. When held in the threshold of the Divine, any darkness can serve a higher purpose, as it allows one to return to the Light if one is willing to surrender and learn from it.

May our darkness find the balance it needs to serve humanity as opposed to igniting chaos.

May we stop projecting our sense of powerlessness and feeding that place inside of us that feels bound to a reality that we continually create with our fears.

May we respect the teach­ings of the Masters within us, our thoughts and emotions, with a humility that births creation and not destruction.

Darkness can perpetually serve the darkness, or it can evolve to serve the Light of God. Which path do you choose?
