For most people the floods are coming more and more frequently and more severely than ever before. Do you curse and resist them when they come ... or do you embrace the darkness as you would the Light?
Both are aspects of All That Is.
Embracing the darkness in your life, whether it be in your face or far from your experience ... is much more than a mental exercise repeated to convince your ego-mind you are a spiritual person. You must Truly experience how it feels and allow those feelings to bring up the shrapnel wounds of your most explosive experiences.
To suppress these feelings is Self abuse.
When you allow these feeling to come up ... when you Truly embrace them, having Compassion for Your Self as you would a suffering child ... for that is exactly what you are in those Moments ... the Light absorbs them, Joy returns and this increases your capacity to have Compassion for all Life.
