You don’t want to have a false sense of security. You may say and think you are on the side of light while all your actions do not say that. It is like being tricked by darkness. So many that we could have on the side of light are slowly and unknowingly being lead closer and closer towards darkness.
No one may be holding you to being a better person. That you must do yourself. No one may be forcing you to give up that relationship that is immoral. That you must walk away from yourself without being pushed. No one may be forcing you to give compassion, understanding and see that someone is doing the best they can at the level they are at. No, you must bring yourself to the point where that is who you are and what you do.
So many are on a spiritual path that is no more than an illusion. They may go from teacher to teacher asking to be lead and guided to a having realization, a higher level but all the while they are still entertaining things that are dark or will eventually lead them to a more dark existence. Ignorance is not excused on the spiritual path and you try your hardest to live as the example of what you stand for.
We have seen it before even among those who reached an enlightened level. Somewhere they take a left turn and begin a slow fall. There have been masters who have fallen prey to addiction even after becoming enlightened. You will never stop being test and darkness will never stop trying to ruin you. You have to find the strength to do what is right versus wrong even in the face of difficult obstacles. Even I have struggled with neighbors who wanted to be able to run over me and treat me bad and when I turned away and said “That is not my fight and they are not who I should be around because no matter what they may say their actions speak the language of darkness” they tried to take me down by saying I couldn’t be spiritual if I turned my back to them…evil has a voice and will use it against you.live streaming film Logan 2017 online
If you feel you are being called to a higher spiritual path you must understand that it requires you to be strong. Forget about who you think you are and the advancements you think you have made because at every new level you reach you are once again the kindergartner learning to color within the lines again. If you do not have the right amount of sincere humility, pride will be your downfall and sometimes before you have really even begun. Darkness is not just outside yourself but is also within everyone of us. There can’t be light without dark. It is about a perfect balance and that shadow is within us all but we can’t bow down to it and must only listen to the whisper within ourselves that we hear that is the light within us trying to break free to one day be heard the loudest over all.
