Shadows

The other night I saw the movie The Year of Living Dangerously.  The movie uses Wayang Kulit, a style of Indonesian shadow puppetry to symbolize the battle to balance good and bad in the universe.  In the movie, the character Billie Kwan uses theses shadow puppets to talk about higher ideals.  “In the West, we want answers for everything. Everything is right or wrong, or good or bad. But in the no such final conclusion exists.  Look at Prince Ajuna.  He’s a hero.  But he can also be fickle and selfish.  Krishna says to him, ‘All is clouded by desire, Ajuna, as a fire by smoke, as a mirror by dust. Through these, it blinds the soul.’”  Our shadow is the dark side of ourselves. 

Balance is an oft discussed topic with my clients.  I agree with Billie Kwan in that the West wants clear unwavering definition.  You are either Right-wing or Left-wing.  You are urban or rural.  A concept is either right or wrong.  There is no wiggle room.  There is no gray.  The West has a desire for the absolute.  But there is no absolute in life.  We are not one thing.  Like Prince Ajuna we can be a hero one day and selfish the next.  We can be giving in one situation and stingy in another.  We are not one dimensional beings.  We are multifaceted.  Life is multifaceted.  Life is balance.  If there was only sunshine, the crops would die.  They also need the rain.  All of nature needs the balance between black and white, good and bad, light and shadow.

The peace of life is not found in labeling and adhering to absolutes.  Peace is found by navigating the delicate balance between light and dark.  For example, many of my clients are open-hearted givers, which is a very admirable trait.  But if they give without end, if they give in every situation in every moment of every day, they become depleted.  There is a balance needed between giving and receiving.  Many of my clients have a hard time with this concept because they label giving as good and receiving as bad.  They believe if they do not live completely in the good then they are bad.  But as the recently departed Debbie Ford often professed, “Your life will be transformed when you make peace with your shadow. The caterpillar will become a breathtakingly beautiful butterfly. You will no longer have to pretend to be someone you’re not. You will no longer have to prove you’re good enough. When you embrace your shadow you will no longer have to life in fear. Find the gifts of your shadow and you will finally revel in all the glory of your true self. Then you will have the freedom to create the life you have always desired.”

Look at your own battle and balance of good and bad, light and shadow.  Can you embrace your shadow in order to become whole?  Can you find the benefit of your shadow and the weakness of your light?  Can you see how they are both needed?  What shadow in your life are you running from?




They're children. Their idealism is a child's view of the world. They want to crawl back in their mother's womb so they won't have to become an adult and face a world which is filled with light and shadow, with complexity and contradiction. They can't be right in this kind of world. It is not good to put a curse on oneself and one's family. And though you may argue that the whole human race is the real family, this is also an illusion — that is, there is a paradox in this. The abstract family only works in the abstract world. The concrete family is the only family that works in the concrete world. The abstract world will not give you a piece of bread when you are starving.

Probably not too many here have heard of Joe so if you've never read him you're in for a treat should you decide to.

Thank you, Joe, for your love affair with the TRUTH & thank you for doing it in public without shame. My greatest sorrow in your passing is that there are not more like you.

{#Cheers}

Noam Chomsky once said of Pilger: "John Pilger's work has been a beacon of light in often dark times. The realities he has brought to light have been a revelation, over and over again, and his courage and insight a constant inspiration."

GORDON DUFF: CIA HINTS, BIN LADEN DEAD SINCE “EARLY 2000′s”

During briefings with the directors of Paksitan’s information and intelligence agencies it was confirmed that Osama bin Laden had been killed, as stated by Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, in 2001.  “Informed sources,” senior Pakistani commanders who worked with the CIA and bin Laden against the Soviets back in the 1980s, had confirmed Osama bin Laden’s death, as reported in the mainstream Islamic news, as having occurred on December 15, 2001.

IRAQ, AFGHANISTAN: American casualties total 500,000, counting injury and disease, writer claims


"These casualties are real and are a direct result of fighting two wars," he writes. "The soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen who have suffered these combat injuries deserve to be recognized and the American people deserve a proper accounting of the mounting costs of their two seemingly endless wars. That accounting begins with an honest casualty count."

Coverage of Afghan War Logs: European Audience "Troubled More...by the Toll this War is Taking on Innocent People"

"Broadly, we see a similar picture in the three media. What we do see is quite a different political perspective. From the New York Times’s point of view...it was interesting to see that the relationship with Pakistan was a political priority," Leigh says. "With us, we’re more concerned about the casualties, I think. We’re troubled more, a European audience, by the toll this war is taking on innocent people."

A disturbing though not unexpected cultural trait overtaking us here in the far west. Something in the mass human consciousness that derails their understanding of what is actually happening around them & what their true nature is. Nowhere more obvious than our own cross-section right here at RP judging by their responses to attempts at bringing truth to the fore. We expect that from the usual quarters but are surprised by the trend overtaking one or two who have in the past portrayed a degree of clarity in their thinking. One wonders what these forces are that motivate them.
