Dark brings light

If we accept that life always will have dark times, then the inner surrender to what is, and to that, will enable us to be at peace, to be free from resistance and our inner light can shine for us.

The universe will work with us once we accept what is and are at peace with it. Whatever occurs in life, when we realise it has occurred, it is instantly the past, it no longer exists except for in our mind. Therefore, when we let go of the emotions and reactions surrounding what has happened we are instantly at peace. We have chosen to say it does not matter.

That does not mean we are happy about everything whatever, it just means below the turbulence on the surface of life, is always inner calm and stillness. From the challenges in life we expand in their experience and they bring us riches.

We are able to see our patterns of reaction, emotion and thoughts more clearly the darker the situations that occur.

The level of resistance brings the corresponding level of emotion, thought and reaction. Letting go dissolves this all.

It’s the dark things that bring us the light.

The darker they are the stronger the light comes.

Right for the soul

Accepting what is doesn’t mean doing nothing, although that is a choice, of course, it means not suffering the pain of resisting something that can never be changed.

The situation you are in is always the present moment and anything that has occurred in that moment, within a nanosecond of you being aware of it, it is already the past.

Normal unconscious mind possessed behaviour means that what is occurring doesn’t fit our story, the ego does not like it, so it resists, it fights, it denies the absolute truth of the present moment. The fight, the resistance, all the negativity in our mind creates the emotion/turbulence in the body which is the mental and physical suffering of not accepting the external world and what is.

However, once we accept what is the pain goes, peace comes, and we can act or not according to what our true self is feeling. We respond from a place of peace, love and our soul. We do not then respond from our egotistical mind possessed state and we do not become the emotion, we are not the reaction.

Letting go and acceptance is the route to acting consciously according to what is truly right for our soul.
