The Darkness Invisible – and I use the capital letters intentionally, because capital letters represent designated authority and ego – is a ‘trickster’ force. It’s here to come up against us (the italics of Darkness indicate that It is pushing us), to test our fortitude, our determination, our empathy, our affinity, our mettle, our courage, our integrity, our appreciation, our ability to love; constantly testing our limits, our borders enticing us to erect, move and break them down.
Fear in all its disguises and spectra – of, for instance, physical, emotional, and spiritual survival; servitude, division, containment, suppression, guilt, greed, stature, appearance; and accumulated and marshalled within the instinctual sector of our minds (not intuition – that is fearless and another facility all together).
Constantly the Darkness asks us to choose what it is that we care about most? What do we really feel? Can we feel? Because if we cannot feel we are not doing what we were sent for: To sense what it is, what it’s like, to live here, with the infinite possibilities that It provides; and then to relay them back to All that is. An unfeeling spirit in human form is redundant. It will see out its sojourn according to the will of All that Is and then be replaced.
An absolute essential for a successful life is that every human not only experiences darkness but commits it. Life is a game, in a way, it’s certainly a play; and if you don’t bring out the hues, tones, cues, aggravation and support in your performance then that makes for a bland, and therefore, meaningless and ineffective exercise. We all have to feel what darkness feels like and we all have to feel what light feels like…and then we make a choice.
The Darkness asks: do we recognise It? Because to disregard It means that that spirit is not fully equipped and prepared for its role, its task; and it is therefore vulnerable; easily misguided, tempted, fooled. That spirit is Dark side material, and the Darkness will recruit it. Standing too close to the heat of the light will both blind and char the spirit. When one attempts to hide in the light one’s own darkness will always show up all the more to those who are either brave enough, or compromised enough, to step out of it.
The purpose of the Darkness Invisible (the Creator and the Destructor) is to provide, rewrite, prompt and direct the structural plots of the unscripted story-lines we are here to act in. We are the ad lib performers. Both co-directors are integral to each other and both are agents of transformation. They incessantly reorganise the energy that is made available; and the quantity of that energetic availability is entirely at the behest of All that is. Energy may appear to be indestructible here but the Source can, and does, call it away or back if it deems it is not working – not fulfilling, or achieving, what it was cast for.
We must either turn and face up to the Darkness, bring light to It, no matter what, or join It. Commit one way or another. That’s a performance. Most of us are part in and part out. The play’s stalled…but that’s the choice. And that choice, that is being asked of us, determines the future of the human race.
Those who’s spirits are still in these realms are only here at this moment because either they are doing what they are designed to do, or show promise of it; or they are doing the opposite, well enough, in a way that is useful for others to achieve their purpose. Which one are you?
Catch your thoughts. What determines them? How do they manifest? What do you do with them? Who, or what, benefits?
We can all do that.
