In Dedication To My Spiritual Guide Dr Malachi Z. York
Dr Malachi Z York taught me the principles of living in darkness, and also embracing the light.
Over the years I have listened to all these enlightened teachers, authors and motivational speakers, speak about light and darkness. They would all say darkness represents a time in their life when it was turmoil, and could not find that light. I had to examine these terms LIGHT and DARKNESS closely. Why? I have experienced situations in my life where my solution came from darkness not light. Although we as humans know light give us many attributes for instance some of these are:
- Experiencing nature in its natural beauty.
- Seeing our children, family and friends.
- Have choices for example, the things we want to acquire in our lives.
- Traveling and seeing places.
- Being able to see how our world is being disrespected.
These are my thought on darkness from the etymology of the word based on its origin.
- When the sperm travels in the womb to impregnate the egg don’t this event occurs in darkness?
- Is that act visible to the human eye or not?
- The act of creation takes place in the mother’s womb, which is called triple darkness.
- A fetus lives in triple darkness for nine months growing and being nurtured by the mother.
- Some of us enjoyed being in the womb for example, one of my children was one week overdue in child-birth. Although labor was induced she was going to my heart instead of entering this world of light. I would say she was enjoying being in triple darkness.
- An African tradition of childbirth is children being delivered in a dimly lit room because the light send them into a state of shock.
- As mothers, we all have experienced when one of your children is in a painful situation. We would fall that uneasy sensation in our womb, which is darkness.
- We were taught to focus on a goal, and store it in darkness.
- When the work is completed the manifestation of that single taught, is seen in the light.
- When we are being romantic with our love ones, the first thing we do dim the lights.
- When we are experiencing aches and pains our first instinct is to make the room dark and go under our blanket. Some how it makes us feel better.
- Sitting in meditation and going within is normally a place of darkness. Where we find that peace, solace, answers, healing and with no judgments
In conclusion light and darkness complement each other. They both bring balance to this universe.
