“Darkness cannot drive out darkness only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate only love can do that.” (Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.)
With so much dark energy in the world, it’s easy to fall prey to feelings of rage, anger, hatred and despair. Faced with ongoing corruption, chemtrails, HAARP, FEMA, TSA abuses and an utter disregard for the sanctity of Earth and Her inhabitants by the power elite, feelings of helplessness, sadness and outrage are a normal and expected human reaction.
For those who have awakened to the cosmic and spiritual changes that are currently ushering in the new age of ascension opportunities, there is realization that the insurgence of positive light energy is now resonating at higher frequencies – raising the consciousness of all concerned. But for many who have yet to awaken, or for those who are just beginning to sense glimpses of this transformation – maintaining positivity in the face of darkness can be, to say the least, a formidable task.
As we look up to the sky, we see increasing chemtrail activity on a daily basis. We hear of the power elite’s plans to trigger the New Madrid Fault line in an attempt to exact mass destruction resulting in the internment of citizens into FEMA camps. We feel anxiety and sorrow over the nuclear radiation that threatens our planet and collective lives from recent events in Japan and the list goes on and on and on. With so much apparent cause for fear, sorrow, pain, anxiety and outrage – how on Earth can we remain optimistic, hopeful and, dare I say…happy?
As the list of negative events pile up around us, we are called to our center, our core, and the source of our existence. While it may appear difficult, if not impossible at times, we mustn’t allow the negative drama to envelope our power, illumination and potentialities. Remember that giving in to the depths of despair is the intended goal of those who wish to thwart the advancement of the planet and Her inhabitants. And if we sincerely desire a better world, a more fulfilling life and the ability to maximize our human potential – we must not give in to fear, hatred and outrage.
“Anger really is one step above fear. It is an overtone of the fear energy, which is what darkness is built on. It is, in fact, very destructive both for us and those around us. So there are two things we have to come to terms with, one is that if we remove anger we will not become vulnerable, and the second one is that we do not need anger to act on our convictions.” (Inelia Benz). http://ascension101.com/ascension-information/32-october-2010/102-anger-why-it-is-important-to-process-it.html
When encountering others that we view as negative, corrupt, deceitful and manipulative, the typical human reaction is to respond with aggressiveness, defensiveness or withdrawal. We feel threatened by and vulnerable to attack and this triggers a knee-jerk fight or flight mechanism born out of our lower-order brain function.
But these reactions are designed to ensure our survival in a world of physicality, duality and singularity – in other words, a 3rd density reality. The social psychological dynamic known as the “negative reciprocity norm” states that every act of aggression will be retaliated against with an equal or greater act of aggression. In our outrage over injustices, abuses and victimization, we allow feelings of hate and anger to permeate our energy fields – and in doing so – contribute to the darkness we so passionately oppose.
It may seem counter-intuitive to respond to abuse with kindness, love and compassion – but this is indeed the only way to free ourselves, and the world, from the stronghold of darkness. Am I suggesting that we passively allow others to mistreat us? No. Am I suggesting that we immerse and empower ourselves through the absorption and projection of positive, light energy when in times of darkness? A resounding yes!
This concept is really nothing new. It embodies sentiments espoused by religious teachings that beckon us to “turn the other cheek”. Many great spiritual visionaries have referenced the importance of overcoming darkness by manifesting light and love energies – rather than succumbing to feelings or acts of vengeance.
“Hatred paralyzes life – love releases it. Hatred confuses life – love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life – love illumines it.” (Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.)
“Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them?” (Abraham Lincoln)
“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else – you are the one who gets burned.” (Buddha)
When others do things that make us angry, it is typically due to either ignorance or arrogance – both signs of spiritual immaturity. Just like a child who doesn’t “know any better” or who is “willfully” misbehaving – we have a choice. If we scold the child and react with anger and disgust – the child will learn to hate and shame self and others. However, if we respond to the child with gentle guidance, respect, kindness and forgiveness – the child will learn compassion, tolerance, and the capacity to love self and others.
If we truly wish to usher in this New Age of promise and hope – it is incumbent on each one of us to remain grounded in the core of light energy – even in – and especially in – the heart of darkness. For every thought, feeling and subtle sensation we experience, we are casting our energies out into the collective fabric of consciousness – shaping the destiny of things to come. Therefore, we must contribute that which we wish to manifest in the world as we will reap what we sow.
So let go of fear and anger. Absorb and reflect light. And know, in no uncertain terms, that the power of your illumination can change the world!
