WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT, ALFIE?
The book I was reading, asked, Why is this particular problem you’re facing perfect for your soul’s growth?
The answer was not in the book but the answer that came to me, was, How can you know who you are until you know who you are not?
Many years ago I broke with the Christian belief I’d been raised in that taught we were created by an all-knowing God who lived in the sky. Since then, the only thing that has ever made sense to me is the idea that the Universe/God/What-Have-You is actually Consciousness Becoming Conscious of Itself. How can pure Love or pure Potential know Itself as that unless there is contrast?
In this light, the deep dilemmas we face as humans could be seen as our versions of creating contrast. How can we come to truly and unshakably know ourselves as pure Love and pure Potential until we experience what we are not–the partial lack of both of those qualities?
Just a thought.
