The Escape From Darkness
Are you in a negative spin or in a negative space? Do you find yourself hiding, defending, protecting, judging others and generally just feeling low?
Whether you believe it or not, this is not normal; this is not how you were meant to live!
The truth is, you were given everything EVERYTHING when you were created. Think about that for a minute…all of the beautiful attributes of God; love, mercy, abundance, kindness, creativity, lightheartedness, peace, joy – these attributes are in you too! They make up your true nature. The problem is, you’ve identified with darkness. And as the Course in Miracles says ‘Darkness is a lack of light as sin is a lack of love’. You simply need to turn the light on and identify yourself with Spirit.
This simple process will help you:
- Acknowledge it: ‘I’m in a dark place, I’m feeling ____________’. Don’t sugar coat it. Name it and tell the truth about how you feel.
- Tell yourself repeatedly ’Spirit is in me.’
- Turn your will over to God by saying ‘I’m giving this _____________ to you. Take it. I am willing to let it go’
Let’s go deeper, with a look at Chapter I, iv of A Course In Miracles ‘The Escape From Darkness’, to really understand how to escape from darkness.
