One of the things we learn as we go along the spiritual path
One of the hardest lessons we learn is that the dark will imitate the light
It’s easy to recognise the things that we name as evil or wrong when they’re very obvious
What is much harder and much more subtle is when darkness is taking on the skin or the exterior imitation of lightness
We can be easily seduced by things that sound too good to be true
We can be easily seduced by the idea that there is a magic bullet that we do not have to earn or work for the deep spiritual wisdom that comes from non-negotiable devotional practices
that comes from learning how to reach into our intuitive power to be able to negotiate the differences between what is actually the Light and that which is imitating the light for its own gain
As our light rises, perhaps it is not unexpected that things may be in out path that will invite us to test our wisdom, our spiritual metal if you like
So it is much more in the subtleties of the difference between the light and the dark that we can be caught out
And it is in knowing how to discern the difference that we are able to live lives of bliss
This takes deepening into our intuitive knowing
It takes working the muscle
It takes devoting yourself to the non-negotiable practices rather than seeking the magic bullet.
The quick fix outside of ourselves
If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
Go deep into your intuitive knowing. Go deep into your spiritual practices and find that which you are seeking within.
