Living in Positive Light

Marcus L.

My favorite quote is, “you cannot fight against the ego and win, just as you cannot fight against darkness; the light of consciousness is all that is necessary. You are that light.” I love this quote because I remember fighting against the darkness. Times that I struggled financially. Times that I fought with my loved ones. Times I ended a relationship and times they ended it.

It is simple, really. In times of struggle, I thought my lack of money, my family, and my ex’s were the enemy. That’s why I fought them so hard. But through meditation, my consciousness completely changed. I learned that all those struggles and fights were just a mirror reflecting the true enemy hidden in the darkness, my own ego.


Now, when a difficult situation arises or I start to feel a hint of disagreement surfacing up, I first pause to ask myself, “what is this person showing me?” If they are showing me my self-centered and selfish ego, I know that is not who I am, that it is a false illusion, and I immediately thank that person for shining a light on the ugliness that is my ego.


This has completely changed the way I see the world. Where I used to see darkness, all I see is positive light.
