Who truly needs to hear it is the one who says it, for you truly say it not for us - we who do not experience as you do your own growing self in your
own world...the only use it is for us is to show you a facet of the crystal which you have offered, so that we may give you an interpretation (based
on our own travel) and for you to know of us what you have not been able to know of regarding yourself, thereby making a connection or a
generalization of that which is commonly within each individual who is on this path of seeking.
(The wise words we leave for others become generalized in an attempt to help others after one has studied the struggle common to each, so that each
might use it.)
In this way you are learning not the self, which is not an object to be known. In this way (as explained above) you are learning of the world you live
in and how to (a) cope with it or (b) how to manipulate it.
When coping with it you are acknowledging that there is a manipulation which you do not want to have involvement with. But the manipulation is natural
for humans, we are born into it. One who sees the darker manipulations may choose not become or do anything of the sort. The driving force which
steers one away from darkness is what develops one's focus. The focus is necessary to take responsibility for one's struggle. But the darkness will
not leave, it is as much a brethren to you as the intimate light of this Creation.
What is one developing, if not the self?
The self does not develop into anything, it is complete/with the Creator.
The human individual who does not know the self is that which does the developing...of an awareness of how imprisoned the human is. And this will
drive one into knowing how to be with the Creator again. Because to steer away from the manipulations at first, one may then possess the bias of
steering away from a world that is prison-like and into one's Essence. But as I have said there is no escaping the darkness...so how does one excel
beyond this near-paradox; that is, being with the Creator while never abandoning the "evil"?
You may endeavor to experience how that is done...if it is done, why it is done, etc.
I do not come to say goodbyes, you are here and we meet when it is necessary. You shall learn during your lifetime, OP, at your chosen pace; and,
beyond the lifetime, one's goodbyes have become meaningless no matter what religion or philosophy one abides by.
I repeated some things, for clarity. We are blessed with our ability to determine the truth of things, such as in this post, or such as this world,
