Learn to Challenge the Darkness that Drags You Down

posted by Guy Finley

The power of a lie is no greater than the darkness in which it is received. This means that all we need to do to see through the lies — to render the darkness powerless — is to bring that lie into the Light. This will defeat the lie’s evil intention, for a lie’s only intention is to cover up the truth. And a lie is left to do that very thing — to fulfill its dark purpose — every time we leave it unchallenged.

We must learn to say “So what!” to anything that tells us we can’t possibly get past any place in our life. This means that the Light has called us to it for its purposes, and we have chosen to fight on its side.

Gradually, we learn that the darkness has no power unless it stops us and engages us in one of its lies. When we shed light on its lies, we begin to place ourselves in the hands of a beautiful principle in which the action that we take deepens our faith. The faith in turn strengthens our action, and we begin to climb. At this point, we are given the wherewithal to deal with any situation that comes our way.

The authentic “So what!” attitude is not cynical or disdainful (as we so often hear it expressed). The “So what!” we’re talking about involves seeing the truth of things that happen inside of us. When something in us raises its head and starts carrying on, trying to get our attention, we can remember that it doesn’t matter what anything dark inside of us says. We can remember that the only voice that matters is God’s voice.

Learn, as best you can, wherever you may be in your spiritual life, to start paying attention to the voices inside of you. Awaken the awareness in you that is able to detect dark creatures telling lies. Then, consciously walk past the lies. “So what! I’m still going. I will not stop, and you will not drag me into your world. I am going to enter into the kingdom of Light and your lies cannot stop me.”

Whether immature, or naïve, or whether there’s no understanding at all . . . it makes no difference. This journey is made or lost with what is in the heart. Learn to let your heart answer those things in the darkness that want to hurt you. Do that and you will gradually find yourself making your way through the darkness and into the kingdom of Light.
