While listening to this podcast, I had to answer ‘yes’ to the question--are you fundamentally safe here. That’s only because I had a moment years ago when I was plunged into what I call “infinity” and immediately knew that “I” could never die.
However, feeling safe here is definitely not my emotional day-to-day experience. I have my full share of anxiety and fear mixed in with some peace and joy. (Another words, I know I’m safe, but don’t have the no fear perspective ArthurHung described above --if someone broke into my house, I would probably still freak out.)
So I guess what I’m wondering is: if you answer ‘yes’ to the fundamentally safe question, but don’t necessarily feel safe, would commiting to the dark side still be a real possiblity?
I’m also wondering if darkworking could be a path to enlightenment? As mentioned on this podcast, many lightworkers were former addicts with dark pasts. I was reminded of the writer William S. Burroughs who spent years as a heroin addict and later helped to crack open the culture in the sixties.
