Random Thoughts - The Dark Night of the Soul

For whatever that is happening in our lives at the moment, there may be points in time during which when we enter into periods of crisis in our life. These times are reflected back to us by the Sixth Essene Mirror as our Quest for Darkness and these are the times which the ancients refer to as the “Dark Night of the Soul”. During the Dark Night of the Soul, we will be faced with what for us appear to be the greatest challenges or fears we have ever faced in our lives.

The Essene literature says that it is impossible for us to create for ourselves and to draw into our lives the situations and circumstances that provide us with the Dark Night of the Soul until we have already fully gathered upon ourselves all the necessary tools that will carry us gracefully through these experiences. When we experience life through our relationships with people and events in the world, we develop the arsenal and array of tools within us, and it is in the amassing of these tools and not until we have fully assimilated those tools into ourselves that we bring forth the Dark Night of the Soul. It is in the assimilation that triggers the Universe to bring upon ourselves the Dark Night of the Soul, not as tests for us to pass or fail in, but opportunities for us to demonstrate our mastery over our greatest challenges or fears. These experience is not possible until we know that we have everything that we need for us to move gracefully through those times. The Universe never puts more on our plates than we can deal with, and with free will, we always have a choice in every such experience to greet it as a powerful manifesting God or as a victim.

P.S. We live in an cause and effect world known as the “Plane of Demonstration” where we actively manifest into our lives people and events in accordance with what our consciousness believe to be necessary for progress of the whole. In other words, our collective consciousness participates in the creation of the reality around us. The Seven Essene Mirrors of Personal Relationship is a way by which we seek to understand how this process works. With these Mirrors, we can use what seem to be negative experiences as stepping-stones for us all to move towards greater healing and empowerment.

Random Thoughts - The World As I See It

I once learned that every person or event that crosses my path during my lifetime is an angel sent to teach me a particular lesson of life. In the same light as our inner consciousness creates the external reality around us, we manifest such angels into our lives in accordance with what lessons we need to learn. These angels, in one way or another, serve as mirrors that reflect to us an aspect of ourselves which needs healing and empowerment. Thereafter, even as these angels leave us, the experiences they leave behind coalesce into wisdom which will stay with us forever.

P.S. The above paragraph is an excerpt from a reply to Lena's article in Healing Insights of the same title in her newsletter sent on Feb 4th 2010:

This article came at the most timely manner to remind me of what I had already known but had momentarily forgotten. Through Lena's view of the world as she sees it, she has re-opened my eyes to the view of the world that I used to see. However, what resonates most deeply with me is this:
"On the contrary, I think that despite everything that has happened in our lives that may make us feel less positive about the world, deep deep deep within us we know that none of these negative stuff is true. That in that place inside you, there is a list that you have which would be very similar to mine."

Feb 4th represents the first day (立春) after the actual turn of year from 2009 to 2010 based on the chinese solar calendar. Perhaps this might be the most excellent time to re-acquaint yourself with that place inside of you, that place where you have kept that list safe all these while, but had momentarily forgotten..
