Victory over the forces of darkness isn’t something that is accomplished from any kind of external action, goal or deed. Victory over the forces of darkness is achieved from within, one person at a time. How do we achieve this victory? Well this is what I’ve learned along my journey.
- We must Transcend Duality and Operate from Unity Consciousness.
This is essential if we as humanity are to coexist in harmony and defeat the forces of darkness. For many thousands of years we’ve fought over ideas. We’ve fought over differences ranging from religion, science and politics. What is happening on our world is a reflection of what is within each and every single one of us. Many wars have been started over ideas and disagreements, but we fail to see that these ideas can coexist with one another.
“The true collective nature of equality is to love and accept all beliefs. Acceptance brings us closer into unity.”
The problem that many of us face in society is that when we’re confronted with ideas or beliefs different from our own, we experience the mental stress called Cognitive Dissonance. Cognitive Dissonance is described as the following:
“Cognitive Dissonance is the mental stress or discomfort experienced by an individual who holds two or more contradictory beliefs, ideas, or values at the same time, performs an action that is contradictory to one or more beliefs, ideas or values, or is confronted by new information that conflicts with existing beliefs, ideas, or values.”
We’ve been conditioned to view reality through the modality of polarity. We labels things as good or bad, right or wrong, light or darkness. This is the source of all our suffering. Perceiving our reality through the lenses of dualism creates turmoil, suffering and pain. There is no such thing as a mistake, only an opportunity to experience growth. There are no wrongs in life, everything that happens is right, even that which we’ve labeled as wrong. Wrong is resistance to what is, something cannot be wrong if it is what it is.
“This world is in duality only when observed by a human mind. Without humans to separate nature into subject and object, the world is one.” – Maitreya Ishwara
Advaita teaches us that “the true Self, Atman, is the same as the highest Reality.” There is no separation; only the perceived illusion of it. Science has discovered many things that hint towards the illusionary nature of duality. Such as there is no cold, just the absence of heat and that there is no such thing as darkness, just the absence of visible light. When we see the unity in all things, no longer do we experience Cognitive Dissonance.
Maitreya Ishwara taught that the Source is both the unmanifested(void) and the manifested(universe). There is no true separation between the two; only the perception of separation created by the human mind. When we see the unity in all things, this allows us to accept the beliefs of others with open arms. We start to see that they are a reflection of us. That we are all One.
This takes the seriousness of all religions, ideas, philosophies and throws them out the window. When we can see that all beliefs, ideas, religions, philosophies, etc… are one with the source, it really becomes obvious that we’re all on the same team. Like the old saying goes: “All Roads lead to Rome.” but in this case: “All roads lead to the Source.”
Each religion is a facet of The Prime Creator. There is no need to fight because all religions come from the Creator. The task then becomes to integrate the many facets of the creator’s teachings into a single coherent understanding that brings unity and awareness to our consciousness. You know this has been accomplished when the Satanists can break bread with the Christians, which has happened.
2. Practice Acceptance, not Resignation
Maitreya Ishwara described Resignation and Acceptance as the follow:
“Resignation is your ego putting up with something you are powerless to change. It is fundamentally different from acceptance in that it leaves your ego frustrated and resentful. Acceptance is Yes to life as it is, Acceptance understands that what is cannot be different until it changes.”
Resignation is a dis-empowering behavior, Resignation leaves us vulnerable to attacks in many forms. We cannot change the beliefs of others and holding resignations about other people or ideas only attracts more of what we don’t want into our field of experience. We inadvertently become agents of darkness because of our ignorance. Ignorance is a product of our unconscious-self and can only be dispelled by increasing our awareness and understanding.
Thus Acceptance of What Is becomes a necessary tool in defeating the darkness with-in and with-out. When we accept our own darkness(shadow self) and decide to use the alchemic power of the Violet Flame given to us by Saint Germain we transform our own self-created monstrosities and in the process we free humanity by freeing ourselves. When we gather the courage to face the darkness from within, then true change can begin on this world.
When we accept the beliefs and ideas of others; we bring unity into focus. Acceptance of other people’s beliefs is in no way an infringement upon our own, acceptance is simply the act of holding a space for others to decide what they wish to believe without any sort of outside influence.
Most people internalize what others are sharing, instead of keeping a space open in their outside awareness. You don’t have to internalize it, you can when your talking to somebody, keep the content of the conversation in the outer parts of your consciousness.
Here’s an exercise that may be of some help
- When you talk to somebody, imagine that you have an awareness 6 inches in front of your head represented as a ball of light.
- Everything that is shared is contained in this space of awareness, it doesn’t automatically become internalized.
- Choose what you wish to do with the information and take what you want from it.
At the end of the day, all of existence is one big synchronized dance or staged play. If you know the moves life will be so much easier. This exercise is helpful in reducing Stress associated with Cognitive Dissonance.
“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages.” Francis Bacon(The Real Shakespeare)
Acceptance of change is a crucial part in overcoming our darkness. Change is constant and we’ve been conditioned to fear change. This must change immediately. Change is perfectly natural and shouldn’t be something we fear. Our bodies are constantly in a state of change. All of existence is in one big change. Evolution is change, life is change, death is change, to resist change is to resist the will of our Creator. Changing of the old is the birthing of the new, therefore that which is old is in a sense that which is new.
“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” – Mahatma Gandhi
Fear of change is why we experience mental stress. By embracing change it will no longer create stress and allow us to be more malleable to what is. Cognitive Dissonance is only experienced when we fear change, when we accept and incorporate the tenets of universal change, no longer will we create conflict within when confronted with contrasting ideas, because we see the unity in all beliefs.
“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.
Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.” – Bruce Lee
That is how we defeat the forces of darkness, by lifting the veils from our eyes. We then see that there never was any darkness, just the Light. Acceptance brings this revelation into our awareness. Acceptance of what is and transcendence of duality, bridges the the unknown with the known. When we accept others and their beliefs, we open the door of possibilities. What lies behind this door is the wisdom that marries two seemingly separate thoughts into one coherent understanding.
The Victory of Darkness is achieved when the Heart and Mind work in unison. Until then, all that we do is an expression of polarity. Unity and Acceptance is the Key to our Victory.
