From Inside the Darkness by Martha Beck
This is a good explanation and perspective of the shadow work available to the collective that I wrote about in my blog on the state of things…. It’s not simply about choosing love and light and pulling to the other side, as that only creates more separation, opposites that evoke defense, and cognitive dissonance. To truly love, one must look to where these things that trigger us so much are within us (likely more unconscious), where they stem from if even just conditioned, in your DNA, in the collective as a whole, and the old you ran away from or turned your back on, and to work with that and embrace it in order to transmute it. Otherwise it will just crop up again in another form.
Spiritual bypassing is not the answer.
And let me assure you that there is collective unconscious shadow work on either side of the coin that’s not addressed in this post. It just seems that one appears or feels more obvious.
Nothing is a one sided experience.
There is unconscious shadow stuff running the show all around us, and is the reason that some ask why they can’t manifest certain things or in general.
My guess is as a collective we chose the more obvious as to help us potentially move through this work finally, otherwise it could continue working under the surface and create further challenge.
The way through is to go through it with eyes, ears, mind, heart, and soul wide open.
Thanks to my good friend Kate for sharing this post, as I think it might provide additional insight and support for people:
