Is there sanctuary?
Our society is being penetrated by an underground life whose desecrations of our being feel like being violated mentally, a process which instils constant fear and stress. This violation is more than merely mental. It has promoted coldness and heart-numbing cynicism. It has weakened our bodies to the point that we cry out for something to alleviate the cravings, to bolster our devastated immune systems. It even enters our dreams encouraging us to feel helpless before it, internally and externally. The demon has us in his embrace and victim mentality takes over. Even the Divine Mother has left us, her apparitions gone.
But has She gone? Or has she merely merged with us and is carrying is, her presence being once again ‘seen’ in 2021 and especially in mid-2022?
Will the demon’s icy grip melt? Will we face down this perpetrator and no longer feed it with our fear, our negativity, our anger and our anxiety?
It may feel like the depth of Winter but if you look carefully, there exists a gentle but strong Light. It is a Force that neither seeks recognition nor power over anyone or thing. It is this Light that is illuminating the Dark Core that has always lain just beneath the surface of the institutions that we have created. This time is no darker than any time previously. We merely cannot ignore its presence. But in times of darkness, there is always light. The two cannot exist without each other. The one that flourishes is the one that you feed.
Which will you choose – the Dark’s sweet ambrosia is so alluring and enticing, but ultimately devastating or the Light’s less appealing simplicity and gentleness, but nourishing and sustaining?
