The void is the place of shadow but not of complete darkness. Within the shadow one has the chance of seeing all possibilities from very different perspectives, even ones that have never been considered.
Here one learns that there is no right or wrong. Only a set of truths that work within the laws that operate the Universe. The Universe always has the first move until you learn to master not only the light of duality but also the shadow side. It is only then that you realize that all is light and all is shadow in equal measures, so you find yourself right in the center of your universe where you are always meant to be.
Here at the neutral, balance abides. Nothing matters but the experience of life or the journey, not the outcome. Belief will tell you that it is the outcome that one must worry about, but the truth is that the living of the journey is most important. How you live the journey is not as important as that you be a living being full of experiences that moves you along to a final conclusion of consciousness. In your world you see that as death, the ultimate void. To the master fully emerged into his power it is only one of several conclusions of consciousness.
The conclusions of consciousness are many and varied. Life through birth and death has only one. Birth means you will die. Death means you will live and be born again on the never-ending wheel of Karma. The master begins to see that there may be other conclusions to the present consciousness contained within the present body. Just as the conclusions begin to unfold, it is then realized that like death, there is but one conclusion that really matters and that is the one that dissolves the life of matter into the life of light.
Within the shadow or void, one sees the womb of accomplishment begin to unfold within the united soul and spirit and the creator abilities begin to unfold. The master then becomes adept at unfolding into the material all the possibilities of fusion. Here he/she remembers that as things enter into this dimensional reality, they do not enter in straight lines but rather are bent like the reed in water. So they do not wait where they are or try to stop the moment of realization but rather keep flowing within the movement of all things.
In this there is no struggle, only the flow of oneness and the abundance of love that created everything in its own image and likeness. Since this love and image has no form, in the form of physical life it becomes apparent that the form of life is the will and creation of ourselves, not the imposition of some greater will. What greater will is there than the will of one who feels abundant and complete in love within the Divine Source. Drawing upon this power in the times of greatest sorrow or darkness brings light in where we may think that there is none. Knowing intellectually that there is always light does not help when the only perception is darkness.
