The darkness does not wish to absorb or destroy anything. The darkness just wish to take away all that you are not.
The darkness is a figment of your imagination. There is no creeping and sentient darkness, there is only void and light. They exist. They do not
What will be left is your pure being - your true nature - not as human - but as presence WITHIN a body called "human".
Indeed, existing in a
fluctuation of void and light.
When it comes to others we are quick to be apathetic, especially when it isn't friends or family., but does anyone show some apathy to themselves?
Does anyone allow themselves to relax and to just let go of all of their worrying and suffering?
Yes, but that is not apathy. To relax, one
must feel comfortable and safe. One must actively seek comfort. This is impossible if one is indifferent and/or apathetic to the condition of the
vehicle in which one resides. To show apathy to oneself, there is no reason to let go of worry and suffering, because it doesn't matter either way.
You can suffer or you can relax, because it's all the same. That is true apathy.
When you do not care - you allow nature to take its course. You allow freedom for self and others. You allow an ease of mind , and there is almost a
"knowing" that all is well when there is not any worry of expectations not being met (such as the controlling of others or the suffering for the
uncontrollable aspects of life and other parts of nature).
The only thing I "care" about now is the freedom of humanity.
Well, then you are not apathetic. If you believe humanity is in chains, then you are feeling strongly about external events. This is not apathy. You
shouldn't care about anything or anyone else, because it will just draw you out of your apathy.
Darkness is not "evilness" darkness is gentleness. It is softness that flows even through the softest light. It is awareness of all appearances
(Light) being seen. It is the innocence of happiness in this world.
I don't even know what you're talking about right here, because I don't
think "darkness" is an entity. It exists because light exists. There's no reason to fixate on it, because it is there just as light is there. In
apathy, the darkness passes just as the light passes.
If compassion arises it will be in-the-moment and something you can actually do something about, not the accumulation of light/thought circling in the
Perhaps, but this is not apathy. Compassion is an emotion. To feel emotion and to take action as a result of that emotion negates all
apathy. To feel emotion and not take action because it removes you from your balance is apathy.
Care less and allow others their freedom more.
That's the truth, but it's not really that you care less, it's just that you make a conscious effort to be less attached and/or emotionally
invested in the lives of others.
Care less and allow yourself to be happy more.
I don't see how you would be any more or less happy. All emotions are dynamic - they exist,
they arise, they exit. You can't be more or less happy just because you tell yourself you don't care. That is a lie one would tell oneself to feel
justified with inaction. This is not apathy.
My personal belief not is the freedom of others... that is the only thing I care about as that would be a solid foundation for each individual and a
self-evident right of nature (as we are all born free until we are given a slave master).
Then you are not apathetic, because other people need to find that base for themselves. There's nothing you can do about it, so why bother
caring about the freedoms of others? They don't care about your freedom, you are wasting your emotion.
If you want to be apathetic, stop caring about the freedom of other people. Stop thinking about other people and their potential suffering. It's just
messing up your balance.
