Look back on those experiences that have helped you transform, grow and know yourself better. Did you enjoy and have fun while experiencing that which helped you transform and grow? Were you certain of how things would turn out? Was it a day time journey or a journey in the dark of night?
Many people who seek enlightenment avoid dealing with darkness and focus on talking about the light. Dealing with darkness does not mean seeking out negativity and being fascinated with evil. It means paying attention to our subconscious patterns and those secrets we hide from ourselves – those we do not want to think or feel about.
In the darkness, we can tap into our subconscious and can find gifts. For some, darkness may mean feeling fear, joy, sorrow, and anger fully without judgment or avoidance. For some, darkness may mean letting go of controlling events in our life or our children’s lives.
Travel in Darkness
Running from the darkness.
Running from the unpredictable.
Running towards the predictable, tame and mundane.
Let the darkness and unknown consume you.
Let the darkness and the unknown light you like a fire.
Let the darkness bring up your essence.
How would you know the content of your essence
if you don’t take your journey into the darkness?
How would you discover the intensity of your inner light
if you do not use it for traveling in the darkness?
How would you find hidden treasures
if you do not dive into the dark ocean?
Do not be afraid!
Your light will never extinguish.
Your light is brighter than the darkness.
Transform in the darkness.
Grow in the light.
