Becoming the Light

Mathew Naismith

My last post titled, Nezha (哪吒), Shadow Breaker, got some interesting responses and queries which I responded to.  What I am saying is the darkness, or the shadow, is from illuminating our lower energy forms which in turn give off a shadow/darkness. It was stated that it’s not our own illumination that creates the shadow but objects within our glow that give off the shadow.

Yes this seems correct, the illumination itself doesn’t cause shadows however our illuminating selves do because we are illuminating; if we weren’t illuminating these shadows wouldn’t exist.  Shadows represent the less righteous parts of ourselves like when I mentioned a serial killer in my first post on this subject titled, There is No Darkness. If a serial killer was the most illuminating light energy form around they would not themselves cast a shadow accept if lower energy forms were in their light, serial killing would be the norm in this case throwing a shadow off of lower energy forms giving us the perception of darkness.  

To most of us a serial killer is a lower light energy form so we deem them as being of the dark because they are casting a dark shadow.  Because they are so dense, light doesn’t go through them but around them giving them a shadow however light will go through a less dense light energy form giving off little if no shadow.  The shadow is reprehensive of our righteous other selves, meaning our other selves are the people around us that cast such shadows.

We are warring species, the shadow this throws off from higher light energy forms would be great, just being here within a warring chaotic existence/reality gives us a shadow.  No wonder we perceive darkness has to exist.  

It was also pointed out that we should learn to see shadows as shades of light; I got from this that we should learn not to see just light or dark but different shades instead.  The following was my response to this.   

To me the shadows that befall our illumination is grey, there are no true opposites only within our perceptions.

A science minded person said to me recently, our perceptions don't create realities, my reply was what created the dark ages!!

Our perception of dark creates realities like this one because we perceive there has to always be an opposite and once you have opposites you have conflicts/chaos.

Yes, seeing shadows/darkness as shades of light is in my mind more appropriate. I think this is why true spiritually aware people are no longer caught up in the chaos, unless they want to be, they see everything more in a grey scale than opposing shades like black and white.

Recently another person said to me that if true darkness is just a perception so is the light. It's amazing how we have to think there has to be an opposite. My reply to this was there has always only been light, why do we perceive there has to be an opposite.

A lot of people perceive this gives us balance if we have opposites which is true to an extent. If we are at most in the shadow we perceive we need an opposite to show our way to the light however if we are mostly in the light we see opposites only gives us chaos.

To me finding the light through opposites is a strange way to go about finding the light, you have to contend with so much chaos doing it this way. There are no opposites, like you said the shadows are shades of light which I define as grey.....

Why do we perceive so much existing darkness exists even within our own shadow thus creating such a reality perceived on darkness?  To answer this, imagine being only able to perceive light, would we be warring and living in such a chaotic existence? The answer to me is no because a shadow cast from a light energy form is far less than a much denser light energy form therefore the shadow isn’t as dark. At this stage we realise darkness never existed even when we were in a much denser form disallowing light to go through us giving us a mush darker shadow.

So why do we perceive the existence of darkness exists? Like I said in my last post, we are unable to perceive beyond our own dense light energy existence so all we have to go by is our present shadow which is dark thus we perceive darkness has to exist.  So how do we become a much lighter light energy form to see that darkness doesn’t exist?  Listen to people who are of a lighter energy form if you can detect that is what they are, if not, you will have to sit and wait for the collective itself to find it’s way through it’s own perceived darkness.

In my mind we need another representative of light to show us light can exist without darkness…..

PS I'm sorry if this doesn't make sense, it's not because you are not with it it's just this topic is very hard for me to clearly explain at this point in time for some reason.       

Nezha (哪吒), Shadow Breaker

Written by Mathew Naismith

I thought I would share the following about a legend that is taught to Asian children to do with how our illumination will cast a shadow giving us a perception of darkness. This came to my attention by a person of the name of Fira Angel in reply to my last post titled Creating Darkness Through Our Own Illumination.

Nezha (哪吒), also known as Na-zha (Na-ja) or Nata, is a Taoist protection deity, originally of Chinese Buddhist mythology. His official Taoist name is "Marshal of the Central Altar" (中壇元帥). He was then given the title "Third Lotus Prince" (蓮花三太子) after he became a deity.

Fira Angel:
This is a truth taught to many children in Asian countries through the legend of NeZha. When he was possessed by a demon, he said that in the infinite space of hearts, there is always hope, therefore, complete darkness is not possible, yet light casts shadows, meaning that darkness must exist. He says that it is something we must live with. 

This seems contradictory, one minute it’s saying complete darkness doesn’t exist and then in the next line it says it does, so which one is it? A lot of spirituality seems to be like this, contradictory, but only because we don’t read between the lines and when we do we might not understand completely what we are reading.  

A shadow isn’t complete darkness; it’s only a shadow cast by our own illumination or enlightenment. How can a shadow be cast by our own illumination when we are so illuminating, wouldn’t all darkness be illuminated within our presence? Yes and no, typical of spirituality, it’s but another paradox and to a nonbeliever would seem to be utter dribble.

When illuminating at our best and we come across people who are less illuminating and we are unable to illuminate these people to our own energy field, what is this telling us? We are not illuminating enough to change the shadow before us, we are still in most parts apart of this shadow.

How many people have been illuminating at their best and gone into a group of people and changed their illumination/behaviour? I’ve also done this, so it is possible but only if we are illuminating enough and are no longer a major part of the shadow.  In this case the shadow no longer emanates with us, we are no longer vibrating at the same frequencies as the shadow that we have cast by our own illuminations.  

Yes we can illuminate the shadow but only if we are illuminating enough and the shadow is no longer a major part of us and no we can’t illuminate the shadow if we are still very much a part of the shadow.   Oneness shows us we are always a part of the shadow however our illumination depends on how much a part of the shadow/darkness we are and how illuminating we are going to be to the shadow.  The shadow has always got to be a part of us because we are the ones casting the shadow/darkness. This reminds me of being a major part of the ego or not!!

The strange thing about illuminating others is they, at times, are quite unaware of this mainly because they can’t see your illumination, however if they are aware they too are of this illumination to an extent depending on how much a part of the shadow they still are. In my last post I mentioned a serial killer who is unable to see other people’s illuminations, that is why they feel no wrong in what they do and even if they did feel wrong it wouldn’t stop them from committing such crimes. Can these people be affected by someone who is illuminating with very little attachment to the shadow? Yes most definitely that is why some people can get through to them and others can’t.  

This brings me to the times I expelled ominous entities trying to disrupt me on more than one occasion, I just laughed at them and they just went away in terror on their faces. The reason for this terror is they believe, like we do, that darkness exists therefore evil exists and because they perceive this they carry this out creating a reality of terror for themselves and others.  Not realising this at the time, I became illuminated which showed these entities they are not of the dark as they presumed/perceived.

If you perceive darkness exist evil intent will exist within this perception as long as we believe this, however once you begin to realise true darkness doesn’t really exist and is only a shadow cast by our illuminations, you will illuminate all before thee in turn creating a reality of light instead of perceived darkness.
