|Still life I painted as a teen ~ "You need dark areas to show light."|
"I don't resonate with that!" I hear and read this often these days. Recently, I had a flash of knowing that "I don't resonate with that" is merely judgment wearing a fancy "new age" cloak. What if the things that we don't resonate with are similarly there to show us something. After all, there is truly no "good" and "bad", there merely IS. All is in a state of perfection and bliss. It is merely our reception and perceptions which may act as lenses or veils to this ultimately simplistic truth.
When I was a preteen my parents treated me to art lessons. One of the lessons that has stayed with me is "you need dark areas to show light". You see, you cannot paint a highlight on an object that is already light. The highlight will appear even more intensely when placed on the darkest possible tone ... you must have contrast to show contrast.
Please, when you feel drawn to say "I don't resonate with that/him/her", go deeper. Explore why! See if this incident (judgment) is some type of mirror to you. Otherwise, if you merely walk away without a thought, you may have missed a golden key that's been served up to you on a silver platter. I believe it is through the darkness or "bad" things we see that we have the greatest opportunity to emerge into the light!
Love and light,
