Following the collective shadow leads us into the exploration of our personal shadow. All that has been hidden is coming to the surface. There is much that resides in the dark that must reveal. It is in the revelation that change occurs, and the choice towards higher consciousness can be made. We feel hopeless until we realize that we don't have to sit passively by while the chaos goes on around us. We can and must take the action of self-direction to guide the light into our own dark places. We can restore order within ourselves and emerge into our own brilliance.
Great brilliance resides within our own dark places, of which we are afraid. We anesthetize ourselves so we don't feel our own pain. Yet, it is in the opening into our dark places, and allowing the light to touch us that our own transformation can occur. We mine the gold within as we allow ourselves to touch into the dark cave of self and find what is there. Begin now. Don't be afraid of your shadow. There is so much more to you that has yet to be revealed.
