Well your still alive and Kicking so you must be stronger for the experience.
I might take you on.
Yes I admit there is a darker side to me, I was not completely joking in my reply to you as to why Id make a rubbish Light disciple in your joke cult.
But does not everyone have the ability to take a step to the left? The trick is to recognize it, experience it, bank the knowledge then retreat
before it engulfs you.
I believe a person who never experiences the darker side of themselves is actually out of balance, and may find further down the path , the dark
creeps up on them without warning. My friend LoneGunMan says it best. Below is a quote from him, Im sure he whont mind. Its from another thread.
What most new age people do not acknowledge though is duality. The two poles of a magnet, black and white...the other force. It is going in the
opposite direction and trying its best to "unwind" your spiral. As the vortex works deosil (clockwise) north of the equator (the equalizer) it works
widdershins (counter clockwise) south of the equator.
The middle path is where we need to walk. Too many "lightworkers" are out of balance and if not careful the pendulum will swing, if this other side
is not seen it will fool you. It will make you believe you are working the light while it sneaks up behind you and leaves you out of balance.
The most important lessons in spirituality cannot be learned from any book. You must look into the abyss from time to time. You must walk in the
shadow of the Shaman but not follow the Shaman's path foot step for foot step.
Like he says, the middle path is where we need to walk, but how do you know your in the middle if you have not walked with both light and dark, white
and black? The issue with this is as Naga pointed out, the light is sticky, once you experience it, once it touches your soul it is with you forever,
a bond is formed, this is true also for the dark.
Maybe its just me that thinks this, but when I saw LoneGunMans post I felt relieved that it just wasnt me that thinks like this.
Im not bad, Im certainly not on the dark side but I have walked slightly to the left and I think this can only strengthen our ability in discernment.
How can we discern against what we have not seen?
