12.entry: The Darkness Inside of Us

"If you don't have any shadows, you are not standing in the light!"

Dear readers, so in today`s blog I will talk about the so called ongoing battle between the light and the dark part of us. And also I have decided to shorten my entries since it is easier, and like that I can make more posts. So the darkness inside of us.

I know it sounds poetic when I talk about this battle, but I am sure you will understand. Because we have all felt it, the darkness around our heart, when we want to do something bad. The thing is, there is nothing wrong with having that urge to be bad, heck, it is normal. We all have light and dark inside of us. What matters is the part, when you choose which one will you act on. It is like having the devil and angel on our shoulders telling us what to do. But we must not give in into the temptation. I mean not always that is. We can afford to be bad once in while and do something egoistic as long as we don't harm the people around us. Because I have seen so much wrong things being done lately, it is on TV on the Internet, people are giving in into the darkness. If you read newspapers you know what I am talking about. People are dying by the hand of another, because of a grudge or even boredom. What has this world come to? Are we so stupid we cant even tell the difference between good and bad. Honestly you can not go and kill somebody if you are bored. Think about what you are doing first. Have we sacrificed our conscience for the sake of progress. But what kind of progress is it, if it makes us blind to see what is happening around us. We need to put an end to this foolish behaviour. We need to stand up to the bad side of us and not let it define who we are. Because once we give in, it will kill us and there is no return. Just like in Star Wars, when Anakin gave up and crossed to the dark side. In the end he found salvation but how many innocent people were hurt in the process? I know it is only a movie, but it has some great lectures about evil and good. 

So the conclude this battle, to end the war we must always chose the good, the light. Because good is our natural state. No matter the cost, we need to stop the bad things happening all around us, we must stop the bullying, the fights even the verbal abuse. We are our own salvation. I know you might think, what is he talking about, I am not doing anything wrong. But let me tell you, you might not be doing anything wrong at the moment, but somebody will maybe think twice before doing something stupid, before insulting somebody. And if it is only one person, that is enough for me. 

So accept the darkness you have and repress it, because this is the only way to stay sane and sound. 
And here is a saying and a picture for the end, just to make you think a little bit. 

“The whole course of human history may depend on a change of heart in a single, solitary, even humble individual. For it is within the soul of the individual that the battle between good and evil is waged and ultimately won or lost."                                           ― Henry David Thoreau
