"The only way that darkness will have power over you is if you give yourself over to that force.
If you look into the darkness and see your own intolerance, bigotry, prejudice, irritation, depression, hate, disgust, etc., it could have the power to topple you. But if you know that all those things you see are only your false image, not the image of your own true self, then it will not have power over you. You can recognize the false image without giving yourself over to it.
Don't give over to confusion. Don't give over to doubt.
When those qualities come in to you, ask for the Light. Ask to see the true image of yourself. Ask to be aware of the love and the Light and the energy of Spirit within. It will lift you, and you will find that the power of Light is greater than the power of darkness."
May we go past the shadows and look to the true source of who we are.
Peace be still.
