Coming Out Of The Dark
Psalm 139 expresses the soul’s relationship to Creator as such:
Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your Presence?
If I ascend into heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there.
If I take the wings of the morning,
And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
Even there Your hand shall lead me,
And Your right hand shall hold me.
If I say, “Surely the darkness shall fall on me,”
Even the night shall be light about me;
Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You,
But the night shines as the day;
The darkness and the light are both alike to You.
If one pays takes to heart the “If I…“ statements of the psalm, they should notice a level of responsibility for one’s level of consciousness, that few of us ever assume. But at the same time the psalmist expresses that no matter what level of consciousness we choose to operate in, God is still fully and Wholly Present. And ultimately, as verse 18 so eloquently puts it, “When I awake, I am still with you.”
The Coming Out of the Dark workshop offers the participants the space to share the light they know they are in a safe place. We encounter the limitations we place upon ourselves and ask the tough questions that allow us to take responsibility for our awareness. The workshop is interactive and as challenging as the participant would like it to be. No judgment. No justification. No problem. If the light and the dark are the both shine to Creator what do we have to lose by shining the light that we are?
