We are Created to Transform the World

posted by Guy Finley

Question: It’s obvious that the world is descending into further darkness… so do we, as individuals, have the power to turn it around?

Answer: Darkness serves a purpose in this world, and the purpose that it serves is for it to be entered into and be penetrated by light.

We each have a secret character hidden away in us that is created for just the alchemical purpose of transforming any dark influence into a beneficial force. We have been given everything that we need to transform and transcend the shadows of fear, regrets, and resentments that prowl the corridors of our sleeping consciousness. And when these secret seeds of conflict have been revealed and released, we are as well, for then nothing negative remains within us to goad us into acting against ourselves. Multiply this possibility by billions of beings, and gone are the mindless wars and all the selfish acts of socially accepted gluttony.

This great power entrusted to us is that each of us is created to be the Light of the world. We can think of this as being the Light of higher conscience by whose compassionate intelligence we are empowered to discern what is helpful from what is harmful, to intuitively know the difference between a genuine act of kindness and a kindness done for selfish reasons. By this Light we are able to tell what is true and what is false.

So then, how do we illuminate our relationships at home, in our workplace, wherever we are? What must we do to enlighten this murky world of ours that staggers under the weight of its own shadows? We must cease being an unconscious part of its darkness.

If we bring light into any darkness anywhere, is not darkness everywhere made less? Mustn’t even the littlest bit of light added to even the greatest darkness leave that same darkness not so impenetrable? The answer has to be a brilliant yes! Can we see the possibilities before us? Can we see the significance of the choices we make? Is it clear what we are empowered to do? Once we agree to actualize the Living Light, everything around us, everything within the sphere of our awareness, may be altered in its fundamental makeup.

This means that in moments of trial, our first task is to wake up, become fully aware of ourselves, and then dare to do the light thing. When we welcome the Light into our lives, we give notice to all negative states: Darkness, your days are numbered! We are done with you!
