interesting idea for an article. honestly, i still have not read the whole thing. like The Unconquered i prefer to avoid eye strain, though i have an extensive vocabulary and especially with regard to metaphysical ideas.
it might help to have the point of each section in a bold sentence/heading, so if it is a point folks already know they can skip that part and if it interests them they can take the time to read that section.
i originally wanted to comment on the idea of using slang. how is this a problem? as long as our intentions are clear, as long as the audience feels more connected, and not less, by reading, then why does it matter if we use colloquial language? are you saying slang has a lower vibratory rate? wouldn't that only be subjectively true, if it is true at all?
also, i am not sure i agree with the idea of judging darkworking. for one thing, articles like this usually seem to confuse the Pavlina type of darkwork with the insidious type. but also, don't you think there can be additional context you don't have conscious access to? couldn't it be a specific individuated awareness actually planned to take that path, for soul growth, and knows exactly what he or she is doing? according to my own guide team, darkworking is not inherently wrong. i guess your team and my team are working with different manuals maybe. i didn't read that part of the essay very closely but i am guessing you consulted your team regarding this point and they agreed with your perspective. my team does not agree, and i trust them. interesting how that happens sometimes. from a nondual perspective it's all the same anyway.
i am probably more of a lightworker than a darkworker - in both the Pavlina-esque and metaphysical sense of the word. but i don't much like this judgmental tone that i come across so often for this topic. how can any of us know our way is the only right way or most right way for everyone else? how does that make such a person very different from a turn-or-burn Christian?
i'm sure you have good intentions here. just offering my thoughts.
