It is within those dark moments that we can learn to truly appreciate and feel the light. I have recently had a dark experience. Instead of feeling regret towards this, I tried to see it for what it was. Through this, there is no judgment or guilt. There is just an opportunity to see what is really important. What it is that means the most to me, and what resonates the most is the light and the truth. This is the only thing that truly makes me feel good, so why would I want to play with anything else? It is funny how the ego will try to convince you to do something, and then try to make you feel horrible about it afterwards. What a great way to see the motives of the ego, to keep you locked up in fear constantly. The ego/mind will fight hard to win. It always has a way of reasoning or trying to convince you to go into the dark. The ego is afraid of losing itself and will fight hard to stay alive. It can be difficult to not give into the ego, but this is just another aspect of the ego telling you this because in that, you are buying into the fact that it even has that kind of power over you. Which it doesn’t. The more you give into the ego, the more power you give it, the more you ignore the ego, the less it will try and fight back. This is what happens when you let the ego control you.
“The mind is a superb instrument if used rightly. Used wrongly, however, it becomes very destructive. To put it more accurately, it is not so much that you use your mind wrongly — you usually don’t use it at all. It uses you. This is the disease. You believe that you are your mind. This is the delusion. The instrument has taken you over.” –Eckhart Tolle
We are all having experiences, constantly, every day, all the time. It is up to us to use these experiences as tools to further our growth. If we don’t we will keep creating the same experiences over and over again until we finally get the lesson, which from experience, can take a long time. Right now, more than ever it is time to let go of these games we are playing. Yes, things are feeling really intense lately, we are indeed being pushed to our limits. It’s time to let go of the old and embrace the new consciousness that lies there before us. There is no need to get wrapped up in these old ideals and old mindsets. It is time to be the change and start experiencing something new. We all want it, and we all have to power to obtain it. We just have to do it, and let go of the silly stories that are holding us back. In writing this, I see how easy it is, the only thing that makes it hard or difficult is your perception of the situation. If you believe it is too difficult, it will be, and vice versa.
We are here on the planet at this time for one simple reason: to evolve. We have the power to create something entirely different on this Earth, but how can we create something new, while staying in the old consciousness? The time is now, and what an exciting time to be alive!
