Steve, when you wrote How to Be a Man
, you knew that you didn't know enough about being a woman to write its equivalent for the opposite sex. So you opened it up to others to write it so that your readers might benefit from a truly firsthand perspective.
Why not do something similar with How to Be a Darkworker?
Yes, you may have experienced life as a Darkworker as a teen, and I know you've experimented briefly with being a Darkworker
later in life, but having (to the best of my knowledge) never given Darkworking so much as a full 30 day trial as an adult, how can you be certain that your perspective on Darkworkers is truly accurate?
I'm not saying that some of your observances aren't useful and enlightening, but I do think your perspective is biased by your obvious predisposition toward Lightworking.
To me it feels like you have a fully formed, conscious understanding of what it's like to be a Lightworker, but your point of view on Darkworking lags far behind. As if you're drawing most of your Darkworking conclusions from your firsthand experience as a teenager mixed with your adult perspective as a Lightworker.
For instance, I don't believe a true Darkworker would call his or her focus service
For me, the concept of service holds a negative connotation. It's one of almost subverting my own desires in the name of some other cause. And that's just plain foreign to me. I do what I do for selfish reasons—because it feels good to do so—not in service of my selfishness.
And it's highly unlikely that a Darkworker would call themselves a Darkworker. Some Darkworkers may indeed romanticize evil, but the majority of people—regardless of their polarization, or lack there of—see themselves in a predominately positive light. After all, Hitler saw himself as the savior
of Europe. Not a tyrant looking to dominate the world.
I think it would be very interesting to post an open call to people who are driven by selfishness, not service, and have them give their honest perspective on the world. Rather than giving them the label of Darkworker, allow them to choose whatever title they feel fits.
And ask them: Why do they see the world the way they do? Why does it work for them? Where are they getting the greatest results? How have they learned to love themselves even though their selfishness is shunned by society?
I think we could all learn a lot from what they may have to share. And it could vastly expedite the integration process for the many Lightworkers that frequent this blog and forums.
