Another way of saying darkness and light is unconsciousness and consciousness, when the world was without form and void, aka in darkness, it was without awareness, and when it was said “let there be light”, it was to bring in the light of conscious awareness. When we go through our own metamorphosis from lacking awareness to awareness, the spark within becomes active and starts to grow within us, overtaking our unconsciousness with consciousness. The Mason who undergoes initiation is said to move from darkness to light, and we can too, but not in their way.
Those who worship the “dark star/sun” worship unconsciousness, and they wish to be the only conscious beings, to be gods by keeping the rest of humanity in darkness. Such people are aligned with the emotion of envy, which hates the light within, and seeks to extinguish it in others, because they wish to project their own light onto others to impose their vision of order onto them. At its core though, it is the desire to eradicate the living and awake in order for the darkness to roll back over in its grave to go back to sleep, to go back to the perfect state of unconscious bliss (like Cypher in the original Matrix movie when he betrays Neo to be reinserted into the Matrix as a movie star).
“You know.. I know this steak doesn’t exist. I know that when I put it in my mouth; the Matrix is telling my brain that it is juicy, and delicious. After nine years.. you know what I realize? Ignorance is bliss.” ~Cypher justifying his decision to betray his friends and re-enter the Matrix.
The metaphor of darkness eradicating light is personified in the book/movie “The Never Ending Story” via “The Nothing”, which is swallowing up and eating the dreams of the pure, in order to bring reality back into a perfect nihilistic state of hopelessness and meaninglessness. The dark ones seeks to do away with the conscious personality, the light of individuality, to be the only ones with it, and to hold a monopoly on it, preferring the masses to be unrefined slabs of clay in which they can mold to their own vision and purpose. If 4th density consciousness represents individuality, then this would be considered negative 4th density, and is the limit for which dark beings can “ascend” in their thinking/being.
**NOTE on the above video: I am not a fan of a few of the quotes Robert Sepehr chose from Albert Pike and Aleister Crowley, because to me, they are worshipers of the darkness, and regardless of what their words say, their lives demonstrate their dark fruit, and this conveys the true meaning found within their words.
In the movie “Doctor Strange”, the Ancient One got her power from the dark realm, aka, the light of consciousness tapped into unconsciousness to become immortal, and we too can become more powerful as well by tapping into our own inner darkness, with what Carl Jung called “the shadow” and our “shadow side”. He said we must take the light of consciousness and shine it upon our inner darkness, which is the essence of “shadow work”, and what I happen to excel at.
“Filling the conscious mind with ideal conceptions is a characteristic of Western theosophy, but not the confrontation with the shadow and the world of darkness. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.” (The Collected Works of Carl Jung, Vol. 13, Page 335)
So yes, darkness is important, but not in the way that it has been glamorized and/or demonized by Church, State, and the entertainment industries via the occult priests in Hollywood, rather, we have the obligation to consciously develop our individual personality (what Jung called our ego self). This means that we have to shine the light of conscious observation onto the aspects of our personality that are still unconscious and relating to the world devoid of understanding, so that we might gain the understanding necessary to become wise souls operating as a conscious force in the world. We must develop our intelligence using tools such as the Trivium, Socratic dialogue, and dialectical/dialogical thinking, and then point our intelligence inwards in self-reflection to cultivate emotional intelligence. We do this by deconstructing our current outcomes, and by working through our childhood and societal programming, so that we can better understand why we think, feel, and act as we do. This process will consciously hone and refine our personality, removing the unconscious impurities that we picked up from birth (nature) and our parental and societal upbringing (nurture), and helps us to integrate better personality and character traits into our personality that will propagate an attitude of living a life filled with meaning and purpose (Logocentrism) to the world around us.
THE UNITY PROCESS: I’ve created an integrative methodology called the Unity Process, which combines the philosophy of Natural Law, the Trivium Method, Socratic Questioning, Jungian shadow work, and Meridian Tapping—into an easy to use system that allows people to process their emotional upsets, work through trauma, correct poor thinking, discover meaning, set healthy boundaries, refine their viewpoints, and to achieve a positive focus. You can give it a try by contacting me for a private session.
