Darkness vs. Light
Light doesn’t know what darkness is.
This is true because darkness has never been around in the Presence of Light. It cannot be around. It doesn’t have a choice.
Don’t believe it? Let’s see…
You are in the darkest room imaginable. The darkness is so thick you can’t even see what’s right in front of you. Suddenly you turn on the Light, and the darkness is gone. Totally. Where did the darkness go?
The truth is the darkness didn’t go anywhere, because it was never there in the first place. How else can it disappear so fast?
The experience of darkness is a trick of perception that fools us into thinking it has actual substance. Because we think it has substance, we do battle with it. This battle is the most tragic of all because you are battling something that doesn’t exist. If you try punching the air, can you hit it?
Darkness is actually the absence of Light.
Because of this, there is no need to battle darkness. The only thing you have to do is turn on the Light. The darkness will have to disappear. It has no choice.
When you live in darkness, it is easy to swear that nothing is there, because you can’t see it. Just because you can’t see something, doesn’t mean it’s not there. Suddenly the Light comes on, and you see all the things that you swore wasn’t there. This is what Light can do.
Why do you think we are so powerfully affected when we see Beauty? Its like the Light coming on in a dark world, suddenly we are awakened from a mechanical slumber, jolted into a bit more aliveness. This is only a hint of what is really Here.
So the Truth is there is no such thing as the battle between Light and Darkness. Darkness cannot battle Light. Light just has to show up, and darkness is gone.
