These are the parts of ourselves we find the most dark. They are the parts of ourselves that we try hardest to hide. Hoping on many levels, that these darker parts of ourselves will just disappear into the night and leave us. Though another part of us will never let go of these parts of ourselves, because we need them. They are familiar states. Negativity matters less when have certainty, which these dark emotions provide.
We have been conditioned for a long time to think in this way. So don't feel to bad. Up until now, you've had no choice in the matter. Up until now, you assumed that the emotions came to you, instead of knowing the truth - that you go to emotions. Up until this very moment, you also never knew, that those dark emotions were not bad. You, in fact, did not know that these emotions are actually beneficial to you.
That has been the paradox all along, that you had until this moment to learn. That all the things you despise in yourself, or try to hide, are actually the very tools you've been looking for.
The Truth About The Darkness...
... Is that it cannot exist with the light. Nor can the light exist without the darkness. They work together hand in hand, to help all beings in the inbetween (of dark and light), to grow and contribute and be more.
The truth about the Darkness inside of you. Is that it is there to help you reach the dark. Because the truth about your dark side, is that when you finally allow it to take you over. When you stop fighting it, fearing it and hiding it. You then no longer have a need to experience it any further, because by accepting it and allowing it in as much as you can possibly take, you will fill yourself up so much by that dark side of yourself that your whole being will have no choice but to ricochet into the light.
Dark Into Light
From dark into light, is like a little death without leaving life. You take in what you need from the experience of the dark emotions, and in so doing, you understand more about your light self. About the part of you that desires to love.
The part of you that desires to accept all parts of yourself and others, unconditionally. That part of you that knows how to find, give and receive....
