I would rather walk with a friend in the dark, than alone in the light. ~ Helen Keller
I can understand why she would say that. She was blind. And deaf. She’s never seen the light. So how can she know exactly what she’s saying?
It seems like those words don’t sit well with you.
I feel funny about it. Maybe it’s because I know how the light and the dark look like. She only knows of the dark. And nothing else.
I can understand where you’re coming from. Why don’t you change those words to something that you agree with then?
Okay. How about, I would rather walk with a friend in the light, than alone in the dark.
There. Does that feel better?
Sort of. I feel like there’s something else missing.
What is missing?
I don’t know. Maybe it’s because I am very sure I am quite okay with walking alone in the light.
But wouldn’t it be better if you had a friend?
I guess. You’re my friend, God. And when I’m talking with You, which is the same as walking with You, I know that I’m in the light. And that’s enough for me. Actually, that’s what I’m doing now. With these words.
And you are my friend, dear one. Along with each and everyone in the world. The only difference with some of you is you’re not aware that I Am your friend. And they have friends in the dark too.
But aren’t You everyone, God?
Yes, I Am.
Then those who have friends in the dark are also friends with You, aren’t they?
Of course. The question is, wouldn’t it be better to know both of Me? I Am The Light and The Dark.
Do I know both of You?
Have you made mistakes?
Of course, I have.
What are mistakes to you?
They’re things I’ve done that didn’t work out. The result of which may even have hurt the feelings of others. That’s what I think mistakes are all about.
Do you feel good making mistakes?
No, I don’t.
Does the dark feel good?
I can’t see anything in the dark. I don’t really consider that feeling good. In fact, sometimes the dark is scary.
How about the light? Does the light feel good?
Most of the time, yes. The sun always makes things a lot brighter and happier. But then light is also fire. Sometimes not so good. Fire damage stuff.
Fire is only damaging when it is misused or neglected. Actually, anything that is misused or neglected is damaging. The dark, also known as fear is damaging when it is misused or neglected.
I can understand fear being misused. Especially with what’s going on in the world right now with extremists. But I thought neglecting fear would be the best thing for it. Because fear is an illusion. Isn’t it best that we ignore it?
Ignore and neglect are two different things, dear one. To ignore means to not notice or to not recognise something or someone even though there is awareness of its existence. To neglect is to not care for something or someone when that care is one’s duty to do so. Ignoring fear means to be aware of its existence but not putting it as a priority. While neglecting fear means, it may be causing harm and yet no care or treatment is being applied in order for it to not cause more harm or damage. So which do you think is more important?
Fear should be ignored but it shouldn’t be neglected either. To me, ignoring it is important. But not neglecting it is equally important. So now, what’s that got to do with having friends in the dark and in the light?
There are those who are ignoring their friends who are in the light because they prefer to stay with their friends in the dark.
So where does the neglecting the dark come in?
I Am The Light and The Dark. When One of Me is neglected, in the long run there will be damage.
So which one of You is neglected?
Need I spell it out for you, child?
Yes! You need to! This is really hard. I kept saying, “God, help me with this! I don’t know what words to come next!” And then You say, “Keep going, my child. Just keep going.” So just please spell out exactly what You want me to say here!
I Am God. I Am everything.
I Am The Light and The Dark.
Each of you are Me.
Not each one of you is just only The Light.
Each of you is also The Light and The Dark.
It is time for this truth to be acknowledged wholly and unequivocally.
Only then will this world begin its journey towards total peace, joy and love.
The resistance to this truth is what is hindering this journey to begin.
There cannot be any peace as long as this truth is not acknowledged.
