How afraid I have been to face my darkness that I have stopped for several months to write on this subject, I like the writing prompts that @JonicaBradley raises, and after a long rest I return.

Hello, this is me - Own image from my personal archive

It's hard not to fear the dark because the most horrendous crimes happen in the moonlight when you can't look at the enemy that stalks you or the souls in torment that follow you, tormented spirits take a walk in the night hours when you sleep if you can and black thoughts allow you to rest.

We are made of polarities, positive and negative, yin and yang, light and dark, our task is to maintain the balance of these forces, since childhood, we are taught that if we are good we will do better, Santa Claus will bring us gifts and everyone will love us, I am reassured to know that there are more good people than bad, society needs more good people.

When someone decides to know himself he must look for what he carries inside and go through the moment of discovering his darkness, a difficult and painful process, both mentally and physically, but necessary to move forward, this reminds me of a quote from the famous Swiss psychiatrist and psychologist Carl Jung.

No one is enlightened by fantasizing figures of light, but by making his darkness conscious.

Origin of the image when clicking, In the image is written Carl Jung's quotation.

This is possible through self-reflection that is done in meditation, but it is not something that comes easy, it is a long and painful process and to get to have a silent mind you must first listen to your thoughts, I experienced it and I assure you that it is painful.

In a time of existential crisis, I decided to know myself, to put my physical and mental capacities to the limit and I went on a spiritual retreat, I wrote about those experiences in these two publications 1 and 2, there I tell how it was to have to face my darkness without knowing that I had it, that transformed me and divided my life in a before and an after. I don't know if it was to strengthen my light or to understand the darkness of others, but it was transforming.

Knowing your darkness is the best method to deal with other people's darkness. Carl Jung

The sole purpose of human existence is to light a light in the darkness of the self. Carl Jung

If you were waiting for a confession of a crime I regret to inform you that this is the end of this publication, a little humor to say goodbye, yes black humor and unfunny.

With nothing more to contribute, I bid you farewell wishing you to clear the darkness in your being and find the light that dwells within you.

Facing our darkness is never easy, but it can be liberating.

Yes it is, if I had not done that retreat, surely I would have formed a tumor from the recharge of energy that I had in my chest.

I released it and with it I recovered health and harmony.

Eres increíble @soyunasantacruz es demasiado difícil enfrentar los miedos, yo no he podido hacerlo.

Oye haz avanzado mucho aquí, me he dado cuenta que eres de esas personas que no se dan por vencida y al final cosechan lo que siembran 😉

Yo fui a uno que hace Vipassana una organización mundial, una ORG que tiene varias sedes en Venezuela y son gratuitas, he ido dos veces y la experiencia es maravillosa, difícil si mucho pero reconfortante. Algo que te marcara para siempre, te invito a que asistas.
