Darkness to Light
The darkness of the soul is found in the helplessness of the heart, and conquering the darkness is found in feeling the feelings once touched by the poison of such helplessness.
Answering back against our darkness requires that we communicate in empowering ways that allow us to feel what was once impossible due to helplessness. Unlearning our helplessness brings light to our darkness, and when we have removed this plank in our eye we can see that the plank in our own is the same as the splinter in the eye of another. Then we can see clearly to communicate in ways that help to remove many splinters and set hearts free.
It seems to me that what is missing in human communication is the understanding that what is empowering in real ways unlearns helplessness around our real needs. This unlearning in connection to objectivity, empathy and creativity, give us the virtues that will enable the better survival of the human race: Truth, Goodness, and Art.
There is hope for humanity, but the journey is from reliving our needs and feelings connected to helplessness, a journey through our darkness toward the light of human honesty, compassion and creative appreciation of life.
There is no progress without such communication that unlearns our human helplessness, and there is no progressive movement or progressive minds without it.
Our choice is plain to us if our hearts are connected to this process: promote healing over punishment, and real need over greed.
The core of the human problem is a common sickness of helplessness that distorts our communications from peace and creative solutions to war and greed.
We must cry out from our darkness, and change the darkness into light.
There is no healing in violence and no peace in the arms of greed.
Communicate with love, and we will rise from our darkness to a better dawn.
Yet poetic words will not save us, we must understand The Primal Mind.
Darkness is defeated by empowering messages, the use of empowering needs meeting perspectives and hope. The prophets of real hope are those that can brave the feelings of helplessness, defeat it, and rise from darkness to the light. They are messengers of real virtue and love. Yet, we cannot depend upon them, they are but the lights that light other lights, and until we light the light within ourselves we can never defeat the darkness of the need for punishment and greed.
Do not look for the hero to come. Look within, you are that one.
