The Deep Dark Forces
Do you know the deep dark forces operating inside you and
advance you to the rear? Do you know where they hide in the corners of your
body making your life struggling to move forward only to find yourself moving
These dark forces are driving your life without control. This is like driving the steering wheels of a car forward when there is a hidden wheel secretly hiding in the back of the car and drive you in the opposite direction. You make fruitless effort to move forward and only find yourself driving to the rear? This happens to all of us.
I want to start with a very simple scientific fact to explain later what I mean of what I have said so far. A black object absorbs light and does not reflect it. One way to study dark materials is to expose them to light. The black body absorbs the energy from light source and the black body heats up. The black body heats the trapped air in the test tube as the image below shows. In turn, the black body heats up the trapped air, which then causes the air to make sound.The relationship between the light wavelength and intensity of the sound help us understand the dark material and penetrate inside it to see its internal structure.
This is what we experience in life. As we grow up we find that we may suffer from parents who fill our hearts with fear. Or, we were always criticized for being stupid and that we shall never succeed in life. These plans dark emotional forces in us and these solidify into a dark cork that allows no light in, but fortunately may heat the air in our chests to generate sound that shall expose our internal fears and the need to deal with them. Remember that the sound you hear inside you is the shadow of your internal dark feelings as Carl Jung describes them. Transparent feelings don’t produce shadow and only dark and semi-dark feelings solidify into a dark body that gives a shadow. Thus, dark feelings give us a shadow to better our understanding of them.
The light source is asking the proper questions to reveal the root causes of our fears. To seek our comfort, we sweep away our negative feelings only to gain momentum with time and change the directions of our lives. The shadow we get shall not be straight if the cork is crocked. If our feelings are crocked, so shall be our shadow. We need to straighten the cork, to straighten our lives. Our persona to appear to the world the way we wish shall be negated by the hidden driver in the rear of the car steering you to what you don’t wish to be.
The shadow is a psychological term for everything we can’t see in ourselves. To restore balance, we need to accept the self-shadow and understand it so that their corks may produce musical sounds to our ears.
I have had great exchanges of messages with Harvey Loyd. I plan to write an e-book based on those messages. For now, I shall share (having got the approval of Harvey to do so) some of the observations that the shadow drive us to hear the shadow of their dark sounds. Harvey highlighted the value of observing our self-shadow, conclude from what we observe and then find a solution to the problem. I will just add here with observe we need to ask why to arrive at the right conclusions.
If an author comments on a buzz without offering a solution or a hint for one. We know then this author may be confused, and he/she projects his confusion to the world. The shadow-self is steering the author to confuse others as he/she is confused. Unless the author admits his confusion and deals with it to find a solution his comments will continue to be confusing. The dragons within the shadow-self shall continue to have the steering of the wheels of his/her life.
If somebody thinks he is ugly he shall live in the fear of approaching beautiful girls. He shall have the tendency to look for ugliness in what he reads, he observes, he senses because he is comfortably living in this ugliness. This shall project differently on his persona and widely different of what he tries to be in the eyes of others.
Your life depends on what you store beliefs and axioms in the hidden side of shadow-self. Beware of this wagon driver sitting in the back seat. The dragon is dancing to the sound of your dark forces stored in you.
Acknowledgement- it is with great appreciation that I acknowledge the exchange of messages with Harvey Lloyd. His insight reflects his beautiful persona to the world. He has the courage to observe, conclude and find solutions or suggest ones. He has helped me dig deep into my own shadow-self.
