BEST of PONDER on THIS for Thursday, December 4th, 2008 by Debbie Ford in THE DARK SIDE OF THE LIGHT CHASERS

“Everything we hate, resist, or disown about ourselves takes on a life of its own, undermining our feelings of worthiness. When we come face-to-face with our dark side our first instinct is to turn away, and our second is to bargain with it to leave us alone. Many of us have spent vast amounts of time and money in an effort to do just that. Ironically, it’s these hidden aspects we’ve rejected that need the most attention. When we locked away those parts of ourselves we didn’t like, unknowingly, we sealed away our most valuable treasures. These valuables are therefore hidden where we would least expect to find them. They are hidden in the dark.

Most people are afraid to confront and embrace their darkness, but it is in that very darkness you will find the happiness and fulfillment you have been longing for. When you take the time to discover your whole self, you’ll open the door to true enlightenment.”

Debbie Ford, in “The Dark Side of the Light Chasers”
