“If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself. If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.”
The slow, transformative process of change leads us inward. We must learn to turn and face our fears, acknowledge our challenges and honor them as sacred aspects of our awakening. The experiences of life allow us to cultivate new spiritual strengths and insights while providing the opportunity to apply them in the world of form.
Don’t shun the darkness, it makes the light even more beautiful. Love in the face of hatred is profound. The awakened soul sows kindness when others flee in fear. This world was created to teach through adversity and contrast and this is why we are called upon to rise above judgment. Rather than seeing some things as good and others as bad, we now are able to see the Oneness that connects them all.
You are right where you need to be. All that you need to know will make itself known to you in the perfect way at the perfect time. When you live authentically, your light will shine in the darkness.
