The light and the darkness
In one of our workshops, we do an acknowledgement exercise where participants create a cycle of loving, supporting, and empowering each other. Then they walk through a process where they actually experience God in each other. The result is a very profound state of oneness. People experience a connection with each other and with life that is beyond words. Upsets and problems disappear. All that exists is a deep state of love, freedom, and inner peace.
Then we look at the nature of this state. People discover that, in this state, the circumstances of life have no power. Fear and upset cannot exist. Judgment disappears and the past has no relevance. Even the ego and the concept "me" disappear. All that exists is love.
When you are in this state, you are experiencing the very essence of who you are. You are happy, alive, and free. You are positive and confident, creative and effective. You flow with life and great things happen around you. This is the realm of love, joy, peace, happiness, and miracles.
In this realm of oneness, the circumstances of life are irrelevant. The only thing that matters is love. When you are in this state, you are living in the light.
The opposite state is one of separateness. In this state, we don't even notice that love exists. All our focus is on our circumstances. We are totally convinced that happiness and upsets come from outside of ourselves. We then go through life trying to force people and life to be a certain way. We fight, resist, hang on and withdraw.
Instead of creating the happiness that we seek, we destroy love and sabotage our lives. This is the realm of fear, upset and suffering. When you are in this state, you are living in the darkness.
The light and the darkness are both very real, but you have a choice as to which realm you live in. You can either have your life be about letting go, healing, and creating love or you can have it be about forcing your circumstances to be a certain way. Obviously, the opportunity of life is to learn to live in the light.
To live in the light, there needs to be an awakening and a healing. You need to break out of the darkness and get grounded in the light. This course shows you how.
Action to Take
- Find a time when you were happy, alive, and free
Notice how good you felt and how irrelevant the circumstances of your life were. They had no power. You were on top of life. You were also very positive and very effective. When you are in this state, you are in the light and life works incredibly. You are also experiencing the very essence of who you are.
Now find a time when you were stressed or upset
Notice how different you felt. Instead of being on top of life, life was on top of you. You shut down inside. You lost your ability to see clearly and became very negative. This is the realm of fear, upset and suffering. When you are in this state you are out of the light and in the realm of darkness.
Notice the difference between these two states
Notice that life looks totally different depending on the state you are in. One state is very positive and the other is very negative. One creates love and opportunity. The other state destroys it. Which state do you want to live in?
