We walk a tightrope our entire lives. The entire existence of anything living on this planet, the process of our well being is a divide of contrasts. These are usually black and white, good and evil, yes and no, yin-yang.
We also wonder how the “dark-side” of our lives, can bring forth new light and hope.
We all have somewhere, perhaps in the far recesses of our being, hidden dormant in the back of our minds, a dark side to our personality we don’t dare poke.
It’s often suppressed, buried, and controlled into submission. Also consider the possibility, that it’s you who’s in full control of its current submissive form.
Recently, you, your life, you’ve been busy, active, and more importantly, settled in your ways.
Yet, you perform best when in times of turmoil which motivates your drive, this for yourself and especially for others.
Don’t Worry Be…
You don’t like to celebrate with those you haven’t have much time for, or have reflection with.
But once you do, your mood and thoughts become animated, loud crisp and clear.
As the seasons change, so does the never ending turmoil of the eternal.
Perhaps that’s the dark-side, your dark side. That nagging dark passenger that’s leaving you, and filtering in new light.
Many wonder what that even means.
Welcome To The Dark Side We Have Cookies
The dark side you see, has been pronounced, over exaggerated, and set to doom as a negative force.
There’s no denial we all have one, regardless of how saintly you consider yourself to be.
Think about them. They are the small annoying things you don’t like about yourself.
It could be your fidgeting when you get anxious, biting your nails when you feel nervous.
They are the subtle yet annoying bad habits you want to rid of.
It could be your bad temper that turns into self sabotage, or procrastination, your arrogance once told what to do.
It could be your poor attitude, which you’ve been told isn’t that nice.
There are a lot of small nuances that can make up your “dark side.”
They are often suppressed, buried, ignored, not to be recognized or embraced. They’re usually forgotten and not thought about.
You treat them like they don’t exist, you’d rather just ignore them.
Going Full Circle
We suppress or ignore all the negative aspects of our lives, but here’s the rub. Whatever you deny, owns you.
Whatever you’re aware of and accept into your consciousness gives you empowerment, giving you back your strength.
Deny them, and whatever you resist will become persistent.
The irony is, to become complete, you need to acknowledge both your dark and happy side, to come full circle.
What we all experience is cold and hot, love and hate, night and day, good and evil, and every other duality which exists in between.
What each of these does is serves its own purpose.
Once understanding this, you then have the opportunity to integrate your own yin-yang, your own dark and light, and then experience completeness.
What this represents is the wholeness of who you are or want to become.
So Just Become You
What being your true genuine self is empowerment itself.
What needs to be avoided are the easy mind-traps of self consciousness and excuses, you’ve created for yourself.
As a result, what you’re doing is keeping the best potential experiences in your life from ever happening.
You might say to yourself, “Well, if it never happened, then how do I know it would have been a good experience?”
If that experience didn’t occur, you’re also then forever haunted by what may or could have been.
You could most likely recall some of these experiences.
There’s not a human known that’s ever experienced this, at least once in their life.
What Could Of Been Oh What Could Of Been
This often occurs when our moods are down, in times of despair or confusion, that we experience this type of hesitation a lot more often.
These ups and downs we realize are a part of life, and in perspective it’s true.
We can become who we are by being in the moment, while still experiencing wonderment and awe.
So merge with this mood and project yourself into the moment.
Allow the mood to be, don’t allow it to control you, instead become it.
Living In The Now Moment
Once this occurs, the opportunity presents itself so you can live life to its fullest, in this moment that’s available to you.
So make sure you seize the day, the opportunity and the possibility.
Realize the beautiful person who’s standing in front of you, and discover your true self.
Your wholeness, the entirety of your complete true human being.
It’s that pure blend of doing and being.
What you’re doing is being you, with your mood as company, living as still as possible. Embrace this moment.
Your feelings just “are” and you’re accepting them.
You then open yourself up to new emotional energy where you can grow into.
Life becomes a wonder, your body and mind becomes fluid, and every experience becomes rich.
The Passage To Freedom
We’ve all seen or known those people who are completely free, to be able to dance in the rain on the busy sidewalk of life.
They can close their eyes and sing their song without a care in the world, as their arms spread out while embracing the earth.
So what are the self-conscious traps that are currently holding you back from being, from becoming a human being.
From who you truly are or capable of becoming.
You need to admire those who lives this type of life.
To be free is being in peace with yourself. You need to set yourself afloat. It’s entirely your choice.
