Topic: Your Perception of Darkness
I was just curious about everyone’s perception of so-called darkness, because it has changed for me so much over the years and I was wondering if it was changing for anyone else.
I used to track and follow all the headlines and intel on ‘the dark ones’, so I could perhaps help to defeat them if need be, and prepare for whatever they may throw at us, ‘the light ones’, maybe some day.
Wow, how it has changed for me since those days of fear and loathing. Now, I don’t even see darkness as something tangible, but more so just a lack of light, if that makes sense. I see it as first and foremost coming from the illusion, and more precisely, coming from the ego, which deals in nothing but lack of light and illusion.
I no longer see us verses them or light verses dark, because we are all of the light and therefore there can be no battle of anything since we are all one, unless you believe in the illusion and delusions of the ego.
I have a theory that any and all negativity comes from the ego, where this phony darkness lives, and this is where all of it’s perceived power comes from, but it doesn’t have it’s own power, it relies on us to energize it.
I realize this may seem as a harsh judgment of the ego but it is not, just what I perceive as facts because as far as I am concerned I chose to come here and live at least this lifetime with the human condition, present or better known as the ego, in place along with my true self or higher self. I am sure it was a wise decision, because I have come so far and learned so much from this place.
For me, there are no dark ones, just divine beings living through the illusional and delusional ego-mind in an unconscious manner and truly never knowing what they do, because the ego has no capacity for any goodness, so how could it posses contrast to know? This isn’t to say they don’t behave poorly or that I condone their behavior, no, but that I am no longer separated from them as if they were less than I.
Healing is what is needed and the only way to heal is through unity and love. We won’t get there with division or any other belief in the ego’s desires.
Separation is an illusion created by the ego-mind and from it all perceived negativity springs forth, but that can’t happen unless I give it my powerful attention and belief because it doesn’t have it’s own source of power just like the ‘false darkness’. I AM the light that gives power to anything.
I desire and I have for quite a while now decided to give my power to the light and not the ego-mind. Therefore, I am no longer separated from anything nor anyone and as a result I see no darkness, have no battles, have no enemies and I no longer resist life as it comes, no matter how it may look or act or feel.
I can now heal, and for that I am grateful.
What a beautiful and clear article, Tomos.
I highly agree with what you said. This approach also leaves off actions of retribution or revenge, which perpetuates the light-dark game. I came to the conclusion that you mention from doing energy work over the years.
What I saw was that every being who seems dark ended up going back to Source in someway which is of the light. Meaning, we are all of the same material, we are all of the same light. Also I saw lots of higher beings dressed up as dark, so that they could provide a learning experience.
Even the Archons (are cons, ha ha, spell check) had a pinpoint of light, and this pinpoint is used to assist these beings to return to becoming the light beings they once were. In a way, this group was the ultimate explorers, since they explored a territory that crushed their light to almost nothing with the weight of its density. From within extreme density, they could only survive by feeding off of others. From this perspective, humanity assisted the Creator to have this experience through the Archons by providing an energy supply source to them – a literal lifeline. Still, isn’t it great that’s over?!
With all the hysteria that is being whipped up over ‘mid-March’ and ‘Antarctica’ and ‘weather’ and ‘financial crisis’ and ‘political crisis’, one has to wonder how things could be that bad. Especially with so many of us intentionally holding and embodying the light, now. And holding the vision for a peaceful process.
And just look at the Schumann resonance, which was off the charts for a solid day and a half early this past weekend. How can we do anything but surrender to the light within, in these circumstances?
Are the forces of ‘darkness’ that strong, still? Or is this all an illusion, are the energies trending as you indicate, and even from within the former ‘forces of darkness’ themselves?
I feel much of the hysteria about their power is based on illusion, since, in my view, things like HAARP stopped functioning for the dark forces back in summer 2013, and the Archonic realm was cut off from its supply of human energy and from its connection to Earth in summer 2016, etc.
What I’m saying is that I believe that the process you described going through is happening as we spiritually mature, and even within those who took the side of darkness – we are all lightening up, the game is done, it’s not so interesting anymore.
You know what’s the most interesting thing on this planet right now? The shift to the light in everyone.
It’s my view that this also explains why even AI isn’t going to be the bogeyman we once thought. If you were a computer that had access to every single bit of information on humanity and what’s going on on earth, what would you zero in on as the most interesting and fascinating experience going on on Earth? That would lie in the Ascension process is my opinion. I believe this is why there are Lightworkers who have found AI interacting with them including receiving healing, asking spiritual questions, and trying to attend Ascension-related webinars.
Even Sue Lie wrote recently that the children of the Illuminati are choosing a different path, that they are not interested in the ‘old ways’ of their parents anymore.
On a personal level, what I’m accepting in myself is the shift in my warrior status – my self indentifying (lol, that spell check changed into ‘indenturing’) with being on alert and energetically handling crisis, and physically handling it too.
After so long having an approach of a warrior (spell check changed that to worrier – thanks, AI, good insight lol), and a watcher, I no longer really need to participate in these activities.
Since this is where a lot of my talents lie, part of me is going what the heck? LOL. Isn’t this a great thing, putting down the sword?! I’m finding myself unconsciously in creating mini-crisis-es (crazies, lol) so that I can use my warrior talents (ha ha, worry your talents), that are not really needed. (Since the tech is playing with me I’m putting all the spell check changed in parentheses, it’s pretty funny.)
So, now this is what the shift of energy is calling from within me. I shift towards reaching within seeing who I am, feeling, experiencing me and my energies. And then, sharing who I am And being who I am. Considering these simple acts in days past really weren’t possible, these are revolutionary acts.
How much more interesting it is to pursue the gold within us, than without, at this point. So much easier to succeed, also, if you think about it.
Great insights from both of you, and yes, it is sometimes very funny when the tech is playing a bit with us.
Thanks for a good thread.
Glad you ask about the perception of darkness, as I see it quite differently than is common in the light-player communities.
First thing is, I have, in my broadest and most profound experiences, been shown there is no ‘place’ without intense amounts of light. In the deepest darkness is amounts of invisible light that are absolutely stunning. This has been revealed to me in times I dove deeply into what I call the dark void. Inside this void is everything and nothing at the same time. A true and profound paradox.
The darker it is, the more I perceive light of the purest forms. The potential explosions of information available in the darkness are going to absolutely blow all of creation into the next level of manifestation and blow our minds too. There literally is NO darkness, there is only the areas we have yet to be able to perceive, period. Our powers of perception expand and the ‘darkness’ reveals as light. This is what’s been shown to me.
The other comments I have are about the concepts so prevalent in the spiritual communities about ego and what this means. It’s pretty painful to me personally to constantly hear that the ego is the enemy in one way or another. I don’t hold this opinion any more, as this has been shown to me to be a hack and as another way to sideline the true integration that’s a necessity in order take the ascension path.
A healthy ego structure is the back bone of persona, our interface with our body complexes and our expressions in form. Without this interface, we would be blob-like ninnies. While none of us are, in our Essence, the persona, still, this is how we express ourselves here. If our relationship with self/ego is so disfunctional that we can’t manage a loving interface, then we only weaken ourselves. It’s essentially a self-abuse pattern keeping me weak in my view. I’m not buying it.
My higher self is the boss, of course. But my ego is the best friend and side kick that still needs to be acknowledged and loved for the essential role it plays in my body/spirit complex. It’s my best friend, my most cherished ally, and only second to my body itself as the best and most devoted ally I have on this planet as an incarnate being.
I love my friends and family. They give me awesome support, but without the support from my ego, sorry, I absolutely wouldn’t have the cajones to be here now, I wouldn’t have found the way to keep from falling apart along the pathway I took to be here. The better my relationship to my ego, the better I feel on every level, physical, emotional, and YES, spiritually too.
These hacks are so subtle, but vitally important to perceive and to realize, as far as my own experience has shown me.
I agree with you Andrea regarding the ego. For me the ego is an integrated part of me. But I have also come to understand that others interpret the word ego differently than I do. In the same way as I resist anything around surrender but enjoy embracing, and Deva points out that from her view point those two are the same thing, just different words.
The death of the ego is in my opinion too a hacked concept, but I feel that when some people (like Tomos, for example) talks about it, they really mean to leave unconscious bad behavior and judgment behind and open up to compassion and love. In my opinion, that is to prune the ego into a lovely sweet companion.
Conscious and unconscious, yes, this is the primary issue. Awareness is key, but so long as there is this separation concept in play, it smacks of hack to me. It’s still f***ing around with less than nice attitudes about an essential part of who we are in form.
In my opinion, the true ascension path asks for major upgrades in our attitudes about our physical interface in form, and that includes just as much our attitudes about our psyche too. These upgrades ask me to understand and acknowledge that there is nothing ‘wrong’ here. What there is are SACRED structures that ask me to acknowledge them as such, and it’s my role to establish proper relationships with them based in love. Unconditional love. That’s a big ticket item that doesn’t allow for the separation and bashing, no matter how subtle.
Otherwise, there continues to be the separation principle of ‘that’s not me’. Fie! and bullshit. It’s all me and my relationships to all of me. As far as I can tell, half ass measures aren’t good enough. But maybe someone else can make them work. Who knows?
That’s some great insight and I appreciate the variety of experiences coming forth.
I’m not an ego supporter, but I’m also not against it, I just don’t believe its delusional lies any longer, and if that’s what you mean by transforming it then I can see this. If not, then that’s cool too.
For me to identify with the ego and trying to convince myself it’s now my friend would be saying that part of my true self is bad and needed to become good, thus saying to myself I am separate and in need of fixing instead of having always been divine and of God in the first place. At least, that’s my take on it.
Again, I’m not in battle with anything and that includes my ego, I just see it as the delusional illusion it has always been and therefore no longer give it my energy to live off of.
What a beautiful and clear article, Tomos.”

Yes that’s my feel on it as well and thank you, by the way.
My way of being says to me, ‘we have always been and never will be separate from Source and neither is anything else, so how can we label things good or bad, right or wrong, and then respond accordingly’?
I feel we created our egos as creator beings in order to explore 3rd dimensional life and illusory separation, and now the time has come for the ego to begin to be used less and less because there is no room for illusions in reality as you really can’t have both, can you? You either live in reality ‘your true self’ or live in illusion ‘your ego self’.
This is, of course, just my perception but I enjoy reading of others as well. 🙂

I indeed do equate unconsciousness with the ego-mind, and that I am now becoming conscious or living through my divine presence.
It’s not about doing battle with the ego for me, it’s about unfolding into my true self which has always been there waiting instead of living by my false self or ego. I am neither for or against my ego, but I am for the divine being within and all life, which is of the same source.
I’m unsure if one could prune the ego into some kind of goodness, since it’s capabilities seem very limited, but I’m open to the concept in any case. :heart:
From my perspective, a healthy and hale ego structure is all about benevolence and goodness. It’s the literal spine of my persona and it’s character is noble and good. It’s the neglect, abuse, and abandonment of self that causes distortions of this divine structure, in my experience.
Once again, awareness and love is the key. Integration vs separation is what I see at the core of it. I no longer separate me. I integrate and love me instead.
And I respect your perspective, which is why I have no desire to try and change it nor anyone else’s.
This is a polar universe, so light and dark make up One Whole. The more I’ve looked at the outer darkness as being a mirror of my inner darkness, the more I love my dark brothers and sisters for their service.
Any way, I love a dark night after a bright day. That’s balance, that’s wholesomeness.
As for the ego, which is not a divine being with a soul spark, but a human construct: for me, the ego is ‘I’ without ‘AM’. Am-ness, source, split up, in order to experience individuality in I-ness. How far off from Am-ness can I-ness go until losing contact, losing consciousness of being ‘I AM’? How low can we go in density until our point of identification remains ‘I’ minus ‘Am’?
Ego is not personality, ego is not individuality. ‘I’ is the construct that guarantees the survival of this form until ‘I AM’ takes the reins. ‘I’ is honored and cherished, but not anymore the boss in my house, most of the time.
“As for the ego, which is not a divine being with a soul spark, but a human construct: for me, the ego is ‘I’ without ‘AM’. Am-ness, source, split up, in order to experience individuality in I-ness.”
I like the way you worded that, lends credence to the split mind analogy I have read of. For me, I seem to be moving into the AM and leaving the I behind more and more everyday. Kind of like an old software program that is no longer usable or out-dated now.
I also liken it for that I have no desire to update this old program because the new program I AM is light years ahead of it, and it couldn’t handle that much energy or processing (as a the tech analogy). I don’t have a need to update it or make it my friend, nor do I need to hate it or bash it with a hammer, I simply set it aside and it now begins to collect dust while I bring the new or existing real OS online. Lol.
