It seems the light is here to stay. The light has always been here, but instead of light being reflected back to me, there was only darkness, insanity, hatred, terror, death and destruction staring into my face, scary shadows that weren't real.
I am still descending, but there are no monsters. Now its mainly about letting go of my patterns so that my responses can come from emptiness rather than conditioning. The body is extremely efficient when the mind isn't interfering. The abyss is gone, it was never there to begin with. The cliffs have vanished.
Life has turned around. I feel more, deeper, wider, louder, expanding, amplified. The tiniest things transform me. I heard a bird sing and my body almost burst. I am filled up, overflowing.
The outer world isn't real, my inner world is real. The outer world hasn't changed, but now I have a different response to it. Illusion requires maintenance. There is nothing I have to maintain.
Move within, but don't move the way fear makes you move. ~Rumi
