“In order for the light to shine so brightly, the darkness must be present.” ~ Francis Bacon; English philosopher, lawyer, statesman, scientist, jurist, orator, and author.
All you see and all you know is here because of darkness, thus light was given its qualities–i.e., warmth, clarity, the enlightening of all reason in the mind, the pleasures of this physical life, human love, etc. etc.–because it sprung from darkness. This is the duality we have to deal with and enjoy every day of our waking hours, and if it weren’t for this duality the ego-mind wouldn’t have been born, thus we couldn’t exist in physical form, we couldn’t have anything that we know now, think, and feel.
Most people in the world do not realize that which enlightens the mind and frees the human spirit to soar into the skies to be whoever they want to be–i.e., a successful businessperson, a scientist, a service provider of some sort, a wise spiritual teacher, an artist, etc.. Most of humanity escape from their darkness, from their past memories of pain and regret, from looking into themselves and getting in touch with their own subconscious, from the misery and poverty they see around them, from all the ignorant “evil” in the world; but this is life and we have to learn to accept it the way it is, instead of running away from it and put resistance to it.
Light and all goodness in life elevate the human condition, yes; however, is the painful challenges and all darkness in our lives the one essence from which light emerges. A woman needs a man to birth life, goodness in the heart of man needs darkness in the heart of man, human evolution (governments, societies, commerce, genius of innovation, and so on and so forth) needs opposition to develop itself and raise above its own mediocrity. It is all meant with divine purpose to always move forward and not backwards, because it is all Oneness (one and the same, just different ends of the same pole, different experiences, different events, different views of the mind).
When you see misery, sadness, chaos, failure, destruction in your own life, it means The Universal Law or God is preparing the terrain for you to become better and excel at whatever you put your mind and heart, but you need to be patient and faithful in the process of this evolution, the new creations and all success in your life will come. There are no coincidences, all is a divine plan. It is just that our limited minds do not quite understand evolution as it is.
Remember to embrace the darkness in you and in the world you see, for this is the very heart of the divine plan, of Creation. Do not stress yourself and allow your mind to be seized by fear because of your life in chaos or because you see misery around the world.
Remind yourself that darkness is a necessity for all evolution.
