when one gets some ideas, images, phrases ... directly after awakening from nights sleep its often our inner voice speaking to us. That happenned to me today. And after getting up the stream of ideas didn´t stop. So I would like to share it. And how it is with sharing one often gets the most by doing so. This writing is also a spiritual exercise for me to adress my dear shadow the subconsciouss. I already tried to speak with my shadow but I guess he can read and will do so
After awakening thoughts about this shadow-thread came to mind. In the beginning I didn´t like the image of the shadow at all. Whats that I thought. But the night and sleep have their ways to change things. I had almost accepted the image. Than a german proverb and image came to mind: „Über den eigenen Schatten springen“ - „To jump over owns own shadow“ .
The truth in it struck me. Proverbs often are so deep and true. When one contemplates them they reveal their beauty and wisdom.
When I „jump over my own shadow“ I jump into the land of Light and Sound, the kingdom of Soul. But I can´t do that against my shadow as I began to realize . He wont allow that. And with good reason I guess. So one has to ask owns shadow to help to jump. Because when one reaches this kingdom of Soul all parts of oneself participate. And maybe the most my dear shadow because he is nearest to the kingdom.
All things have their general and personal aspects. The personal aspect of the matter is that I´ve been struggling with my shadow for to many years. And I´m really tired of it.
Here comes another SDP-thread into play. It´s „Shedding Skin“. I just saw that the last post was on Friday October, 23. Hm, is there any meaning for me in it? Anyway, since some months I´ve been going through such a process of shedding skin. It´s at the same time a wonderful experience to watch oneself changing and it hurts. Thats how it is.
A good friend of mine who did some posts here mentioned SDP and especially the Shedding-Skin-thread in a phone call some months ago. And when one gets a hint from the Golden tongued wisdom one better listens.
So I visited the web site and looked for the thread. I already knew SDP and I read your book „The whole truth“. It´s an eye opener in many ways. I began to see and understand Paulji and what he did and does for us better.
And I appreciate the spirit of respect and love that shines through the sites of the book. I borrowed from a friend „The silent questions“. I didnt read it yet but read some parts that catched my eye. Thank you Doug for your work.
Back on track. The process of shedding skin through which I´m going through and and the need to jump over my own shadow are inseparably connected. Writing and sharing are also part of it.
So this writing here helped me very much. I feel much lighter now. I hope dear shadow, you will ponder it too. And maybe it helps someone who goes through similar processes.
Thank you and Love
