These words are also what I say to suicidal people. Whenever someone is suicidal and they come to me, it is always the feeling of their darkness not belonging in this world, which makes them want to end their lives. We live in a society obsessed with positivity (or the appearance of positivity) and light. Anyone with a blemish, anyone with darkness, with a heaviness, is seen as a hindrance to the positivity that people want to attain. Thanks to teachings like the law of attraction, people are not taught how to get their hands dirty and transmutate darkness into light. Thanks to the teachings of today, we are living amongst a spiritually weak generation of people, who do not know how to face the darkness in the world and transform that darkness into light. The attitude today, of people, is that they believe that they are entitled to positivity and they are entitled to all of the light and the goodness, but they are too weak, afraid and unskilled to work with the darkness into order to create light. In our universe, the cosmology and the astronomy of sciences all point to the fact that light proceeds from darkness. In our universe, the greatest amount of space is taken up by dark matter and dark energy. Only 4% of our universe is taken up by light and objects of light that we are able to name and to recognise (planets, stars, nebulae, people). 73% of our universe is dark energy; 23% of our universe is dark matter.
In our current society, where people don't know what to do with negativity, they feel like they no longer deserve to live in this world the minute they experience depression, anxiety, other forms of heaviness in their lives. They want to kill themselves, they feel like they are not welcome.
But they are welcome. The only way to create light is to create it from darkness. Dark energy has the most potential to produce the most powerful forms of light. People need to know that they belong, that they are welcome, and that they are in fact WARRIORS.
In our day and age, people want to see everybody without sickness: this is a form of positivity. But they are not taught that in order to heal a sickness, you must touch the sick person. So, people want to live in a world free of sickness, but at the same time they do not want to heal the sick person. But for the world to be free of sickness, you must heal the sick person. See?
Today, people want to have flowers. Flowers nicely cut and placed in their homes. But they don't want to dig holes in the ground with their hands to plant seeds.
People want to have a clean world, but they will not bend over to pick up a piece of trash at their feet.
People want to worship the image of Jesus Christ on the walls of the church, but they forget that Jesus died a very violent death in order for them to be able to do that. Jesus walked with the sick, the lost, the bruised. Jesus did not for a single moment turn his face from the negative darkness in the world and in other people.
In reality, the current state of humanity's obsession with positivity, is the thing destroying people on the inside, and the planet on the outside.
Show me a person who will touch the sick, eat with the lost, and not fear the darkness in others, and I will show you a holy person.
I believe strongly in positivity and light. The difference with me and others though, is that I believe in producing light, not just basking in it. I believe in making diamonds out of rocks. It's positive, but it's not surface stuff. It's roots stuff. Rootwork.
To have a beautiful rose, make sure the soil is good. Others may want to have a garden full of roses and I want that too, but I know that a garden full of roses comes from a good soil and long roots. I am the maker of the garden, I am not just the one who wants to walk through it. And I believe that there should be more makers of gardens.
Darkness enshrouds the seed where the rose will emerge from. Remember that!
Do you consider yourself to be a positive person? A positive influence? Before you continue on with your day, stop and ponder upon these words. I do hope this will be helpful, have a wonderful day ahead!
