At the Cross Roads of Light and Darkness
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places
While hate and corruption are the progenitors of misunderstanding and exigent circumstances, here cause and effect have their genesis in different realms. Though composed as misunderstanding and exigent circumstances in the natural realm, hate and corruption are nevertheless the offspring of evil, which has its genesis in the spirit realm. No matter the realm of origin, metamorphous from like inspiration to like expression is immutable.
The spirit realm is comprised of multiple imperishable dimensions, operating in parallel with the natural realm. The natural realm is comprised of three specific temporal dimensions providing both visibility and tactility. Confining belief to only what can be seen or held defrauds life of its immeasurably abundant potential. The consequential sense of limitation and unquenchable dissatisfaction, is both un-natural and un-spiritual.
Evil has a spirit realm advocate whose very substance of existence is fear, which can only be resisted in the realm of its genesis. Evil cannot be abated by political, social, economic, psychological, or religious tonics; natural realm intervention is impotent against spiritual agency. The ability of evil inspired in the spirit realm to perpetrate in the natural realm is facilitated by deception. Further, the devastating weapon of deception takes advantage of the most powerful delivery system in the universe, words. By this means, evil attained dominion of the natural realm.
The universal sovereign, whose very substance of existence is love, has already defeated the advocate of evil in the spirit realm, and endowed a new natural realm weapon, truth. Truth has its own formidable power, capable of thwarting both fear and deception. However, truth cannot be discerned or engaged by intellectual, clinical, analytical or heuristic assessment. Inseparable, truth and love culminate in unbounded liberty and abundant life, nourished in spiritual Light. Fear and deception culminate in the illusion of control, ignorance illuminated by spiritual Darkness.
In the natural realm darkness seeks to suborn the conscience of the influential and powerful, and to beguile all into false confidence. The witting and unwitting agents of darkness are actually victims, addicted to deception and disinclined to truth. These victims declare the spirit realm a fantasy province, and evil agency a phantom companion of the gullible. Pronouncements pertaining to spirit realm principles have been declared politically incorrect and even illegal in some jurisdictions; spiritual province and agency may only be embraced privately and silently.
While the inferior Spirit of Darkness invades the mind, the superior Spirit of Light must be welcomed into the heart. This subconscious proximity is exploited by the inferior to impersonate the superior. Affirmations of conflicted aspirations abound; the spiritually inclined often live indistinguishably from the spiritually disinclined. No matter that the superior has bruised the head of the inferior, now under spirit realm house arrest, the merry-go-round of self-providence remains the bon vivant of the natural realm.
Deception and fear provide the primary seismic energy dismembering relationships between nations, cultures, orientations, and individuals, yet attention remains laser focused on hate and corruption, which are but transient aftershocks. Only those freely indwelled by the Spirit of Light can operate in unconditional love and discern truth. They must not and in fact cannot, surrender under the white flag of silence. There will be neither armistice nor détente between the natural realm ambassadors of spirit realm adversaries. The conflict is actually a conquest for dominion and power.
Prompting peace and prosperity by natural realm practices and methods such as intellectual development, journalistic disclosure, economic and social initiatives, military conquest, and philanthropy, has proven futile and disastrously contagious. No corner of humanity has managed to circumvent the signature achievements bequeathed by enlightenment, such as: sectarian conflict, criminal confiscation, nuclear proliferation, kidnapping, rape, mass murder, ethnic cleansing, abortion, and pernicious greed.
The human heart is the fertile abode where the Spirit of Light inculcates truth and gestates discernment. The sages of enlightenment, who consider the mind the seat of wisdom and propitious providence, lambast this position. Nevertheless, just as many consider sitting the new smoking, all had better recognize enlightenment as turbo charged deception, with turbo charged destructive potential.
Over two hundred years ago, her Majesties reluctant subjects chose to resist demands for tribute rationalized by deception. They possessed underwhelming resources and experiences with which to contend against overwhelming technology and organization. These reluctant colonists committed yet another subversive act when they disavowed self-providence to embrace the well familiar refuge of Spiritual Light. The miraculous power of truth was brought to bear in the natural realm against the agency of deception.
Victorious, the infant nation chose to begin its most seminal written expression of national creed with the words, “We hold these truths to be self evident”… The same nation is now challenged to lead a world in turmoil, not by bent of political, financial, or military swagger, but into the same Spiritual Light embraced at and before it’s founding. However, this nation must first resign its own world-class addiction to enlightenment and return to the Light.
In every arena of life and on every occasion, whether personal or private, each of us must determine under which spirit we are operating.
