"Even falling feels like flying for a time." RS.D 🦋👁️
An amazing person in my life told me recently that he felt like Lucifer and God simultaneously. This notion caused him great fear. I told him it made a lot of sense, and that I was happy to hear he had come to that conclusion.
He looked at me from behind a furrowed brow, beckoning for the elaboration of how that could possibly be a sound revelation.
I told him, there is no grace or understanding gained from unopposed perfection. This is why we start as perfect beings, and slowly deny ourselves of this divine consciousness as we begin to develop our human consciousness, perpetuating the space which separates us from one another as a "whole" being.
There is a stigma against the greatness of Lucifer because he turned away from God, becoming the first fallen. He did this of his volition, allowing himself to falter, just as God had intended. Lucifer represents temptation, and the observed weakness of human will.
Regardless of your religious beliefs or journey, one thing remains that as humans, we all must falter. We all must fall.
Truthfully, there is no way to escape "bad luck." I used to think we were supposed to hang onto this fruitless hope that one day, if we were "good" enough, we could outgrow all these bad things from happening to us and find peace.
This is why I now say I don't believe in the idea of luck.
I look at all the horrible things that have happened in my life, the trauma, the suffering, and I realize what great Light overcoming that strife inevitably brought me, what it continues to teach me with every fall.
Good and bad are ever present forces in our lives. We cannot have one without the other.
There is great power in accepting one's Shadows as the gatekeeper to Light. Allowing yourself to falter and embracing the humanity of those teachings is what inevitably brings us closer to divine understanding, reverting us to the very perfection with which we started. 🌌♾️☀️
