“The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge.” ~ Carl G. Jung
The Shadow: Letters from Your Soul on Shadow Projections
I see you struggling to rise above your many fears, doubts and limitations; seeking to escape the darkness that has enveloped you; fighting your shadow projections and believing the outside world to be far greater and much more powerful than you.
I see you falling… over and over again, into agony, self-pity, hatred, and despair. And I can’t help but wonder: Why won’t you surrender to the Truth?
We have met the enemy and it is us
The world is your mirror, reflecting back at you a world that is deeply rooted and hidden within the depths of you. And just because you’re not aware of it it does not mean that it doesn’t exist.
When you point the finger at another – making enemies out of others and demons out of shadow projections – you fail to realize that the fault is never in another, it is always within you.
To think you know what you do not… that is a sign of great foolishness, of pride and of ignorance.
To admit, to yourself, and others that you don’t know… that is a sign of great courage, wisdom, and humility.
There is no enemy out there. There never was and never will be.
The enemy lies within!
“If you imagine someone who is brave enough to withdraw all his projections, then you get an individual who is conscious of a pretty thick shadow. Such a man has saddled himself with new problems and conflicts. He has become a serious problem to himself, as he is now unable to say that they do this or that, they are wrong, and they must be fought against…
Such a man knows that whatever is wrong in the world is in himself, and if he only learns to deal with his own shadow he has done something real for the world. He has succeeded in shouldering at least an infinitesimal part of the gigantic, unsolved social problems of our day..” ~ Carl G. Jung
Your thoughts and your senses, the world you see out there… they do not hold the answer to life’s burning questions, they only feel and think they do.
If you truly want to find the answers, you must learn to look within for the truth that has always been with you.
I know you and I love you.
I have never judged you, and never will. For you and I are ONE, not two. And although darkness seems to be present within you and all around you, that is only because you have turned your face away from Light and Truth.
You were created in the image and likeness of a Loving Infinite Intelligence… And in this Loving Intelligence there is no darkness at all. (1 John 1:5) Which means that there is no darkness in you!
Light is your essence and Love is your origin. And you have absolutely nothing to fear or worry about. For there is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. (1 John 4:18)
Be made perfect in Love.
Break the chains of your imprisonment and become Perfect and Whole. Close your eyes to the world out there and learn to open them to the world within.
Learn to see yourself through the eyes of love, no longer through the eyes of fear, of insecurity, of self-hatred and despair.
Release yourself from yourself and be made perfect in love.
Lay down those old beliefs and fearful stories that have been imprisoning the real you for eons, and be made free again. Melt into love and become ONE with Love. For there is no greater power than Love.
Humble yourself before your Divinity; bow your head to the wisdom of your heart and call for My help, My wisdom and My love. Allow Me to shower you with Light, Peace and Love and you will be able to see again; to show you the way you should go and how to lose yourself to Light.
You do not have to be afraid any longer, nor do you have to feel like you’re all alone. For the universe is within you, and YOU are the one who animates it all.
Trust yourself to your Self and you will never feel afraid.
I Love you and I am always with you…
