Dark Dreams Are Made of This...

Key Lesson: Refuse to negatively anticipate the arrival of any imagined moment, and you won't have anything to resist now... or ever.

Be One with the Light of Life

It rarely occurs to us, but there is a greater potential in what we don't yet know about this life of ours than there is in what we've already seen about it. So this great undiscovered territory -- this "darkness" within us -- is there for a distinctly Divine purpose: it exists as it does to serve the Light that reveals it; for in each such revelation there is a simultaneous realization and release of a new order of consciousness. There is such beauty in this idea, for it speaks to the possibility of a continual rebirth within us. What this means to us is that we don't yet see "problems" for what they really are: a part of the Light within us that we have yet to perceive! Any thought or feeling that troubles us in mind or heart, any fear or worry, is like a candle not yet lit. What purpose has any flame or light -- in any form we may find it -- other than to enter into and transform what is dark into more of itself?

For instance, maybe we turn around one day and find ourselves caught in the dark grip of some kind of fear. Perhaps we see the one we love "looking the other way"; maybe a phone call delivers uncertain news about our deteriorating health; or someone tells us about a forthcoming change at work that threatens our sense of security.

In moments such as these, our future grows as dark as it seems full of the loneliness, worry, and loss we see coming our way. But our lives need not be swallowed up in unconscious servitude to this kind of suffering. Choose instead to bring your fear and worry about "tomorrow" into the Light of your Self. Remain there in your awareness of these frightening shadows, and here's what you'll see unfold before your inner eyes: you'll watch these dark doubts dissolve into an unquestioned knowing that no time to come has power over the peace of being in the present moment. You will see that serenity is one with the life of the Light you have chosen to be.
