“I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.” ~ Og Mandino; American author and businessman.
The Entity of Darkness is not your Enemy.
This is how life gets to be rich and valuable to us: Opposites. How can you elevate your mind if there are no challenges for you to endure and overcome…?? How can you learn to embrace the wisdom within you if you do not have the ego covering it…?? How can you work harder in your life if you never knew struggle in your life…??
Darkness, Demons, The Devil, Evil, etc.–these are all human concepts describing one unity; like love, peace, harmony, freedom, happiness, etc., is all one unity as well. We must not get lost in the myriad of human concepts, in order to see and understand what makes us human and capable of becoming better, capable of overcoming great obstacles and adopting a confident and brave character in the face of fear in our unique lives.
Thoughts are powerful energy, light and dark ones, positive and negative ones, the ones of love and the ones of pure ego. They are all needed to be us and to progress, because human evolution is different for each of us. And they are what we have as tools every single day, except most people do not see them as mere tools, but they see them as themselves.
This is why most people live in fear and mental and emotional misery and anger, because they think they are these dark thoughts popping up in their consciousness, so they become angry for no logical reason, they protest and become violent towards others, they follow their thoughts and neglect their families and even themselves over their ambitions, they commit all sorts of crimes, they get surgeries and alterations done to their own bodies, etc. etc. However, even though these dark thoughts are part of our humanity, they are mere mental objects the real you can watch appearing in your awareness. So, if you indeed watch these dark thoughts popping up or appearing in your consciousness, then you yourself become the watcher, thus the Master.
Once you become the Master, life does not challenge you anymore because it respects your mastery. Life is ongoing progress, so you still are tested to elevate yourself, but the tests life give you do not deter you because you have now become the Master.
