Do you curse the darkness or anticipate the dawn, and if one precedes the other then that's great news, to know that we're in the twilight.
Therefore, bring on the darkness, so we can get to the dawn!
"All happiness for man, must arise exclusively only in relation to some unhappiness, already experienced."
~ Gurdjieff www.gurdjieff.org...
Why am I so positive? Had a few "dark nights of the soul" experiences, starting in the late 90's. Been there, done that got the t-shirt. We're all
doing the required work, and the others, the masses, they will come into an inheritance they did not work for, in the same way that we could not be
doing what we are doing, without looking at and copying those who came before us and who lit the way.
That we are living in the age when it all might come to a head, is just ASTOUNDING! What an honour and a priviledge, and what an honour to have been
in a position to serve the process on behalf of everyone everywhere!
Rejoice! And if you are suffering "for the sake of righteousness" or what is good and loving, just and true - rejoice again!!! Or, if you are
persecuted for the sake of what's good and right, rejoice some MORE, for GREAT is your reward in heaven!
I say if you are doing the work needed, to carry some of the load, to help us all get to the light of life - imagine you are at the focal point of a
massive stadium of spectators filled with roaring fans every one of whom are rooting for you, that you will triumph, and overcome, because your
overcoming is theirs, is mine.
Like I said, we're all in this together, so be of good cheer, for some have overcome the world already. The way has already been paved, although
there may still be a few bumps in the road for good measure..
