The Void Is Not To Be Avoided (“A Bad Day For The Ego Is A Good Day For The Soul”)By
Life Visioning: A Four-Stage EvolutionaryJourney
to Live as Divine Love by Michael Beckwith
One of my favorite spiritual teachers is Michael Beckwith (I have many:-) and if you haven’t already, I’d recommend you look into his Life Visioning Process/program:
I have used this process myself in the past and I love how openly Michael speaks about his moments of utter darkness. It’s refreshing, when most seem to want to look so positive and happy all the time for others.
I believe we all experience them from time to time – especially I want to add; when we have chosen (consciously) the spiritual journey – I know I have been through these spiritual temper tantrums numerous times in my life myself.
We all flow in and out of alignment all the time, and it’s important that these times of darkness is not avoided but embraced.
Something is about to be born, something new, better and more joyful comes out of it.
Sometimes ‘feeling bad’ mean that good (inner) work is being accomplished.
Right before a breakthrough there can be an experience of a breakdown.
Here’s a couple of posts I have written at times when I have been in these moments:
Spiritual foot-stomping moments (About being in a “spiritual waiting-room”)
Just knowing that All really is Well and in perfect divine order brings a sense of inner peace to us again, if not immediately, then for sure later on when we have got through the worst.
I love this quote by Michael Beckwith:
“A bad day for the ego is a good day for the soul”
