If it were not for the darkness that we experience in life, the Light that subsequently illuminates our pathway would not shine as bright. Darkness is a necessity for The Light in YOU to become more evident, showcasing the true essence of who you really are. – Bradford Speaks
We all know that Darkness and Light are literal and polar opposites, at least according to the way the mind interprets our world. The concepts of these have great implications, as they have come to define the ideas we have around good and evil as it relates to the life-dream we are creating and experiencing together. They have also served to form the great barriers that we have so neatly placed around ourselves and our true potentiality. To most, Darkness (or blackness) carries a connotation of evil, bad, or dirty. While Light (or white), on the other hand, has been connoted with good, pure, “holy”, and clean. Many have taken this belief and run with it as truth, when it couldn’t be further from it.
The truth is that without Darkness, Light could not and would not exist. Light is the daughter of Darkness. We cannot be cognizant of one without first having re-cognition of the other. Light can only been seen against Darkness, for if it were not for darkness Light would have no background from which to reflect its innate beauty. Doesn’t this make Darkness the intrinsic beauty of Light? Darkness is the characteristic of our lives that we try to shun and avoid, but that we should actually embrace more fully. In this embracement, we can be assured that the Light is just beyond the horizon. In fact, the horizon is already before you – it is YOU.
Life has an array of Darkness that it must present to us in order to make us take note of the Light that is ever-present withIN and around us. You strategically chose your dark moments to serve as a gentle reminder of who you are – to awaken you inside the life-dream so you can be given multiple opportunities to choose again to live life more lucidly. You chose these moments of darkness because at some level you knew that like a trail of bread crumbs, they would lead you back to the Lighted path. There is no darkness, there is only YOU. And YOU…ARE…The Light.
