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 not 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 were always meant to be.
Here at the neutral or zero point, 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 what is most important. The most important part of the living of the journey is that you, as a living being are full of experiences that move you along the path to a final conclusion of consciousness. In your world you see that as death, the ultimate void. Yet, when you are fully emerged into your 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 that you will die. Death means that you will live and be born again on the never ending wheel of Karma. So, the master in you begins to see that there may be other conclusions to the present consciousness contained within the present physical 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 then the creator abilities begin to unfold. Then, you, as master, become adept at unfolding into the material, all the possibilities of fusion. Here, you remember 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 of manifestation but they instead, keep flowing within the movement of all things.
In this there is no struggle, only the flow of oneness and abundance of love that created everything in its own image and likeness. Since this love and image have no form, in the form of physical life it becomes apparent that the form of life is the will and the creation of ourselves, not the imposition of some greater will. For 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 will bring light in to where we think there is none. Knowing intellectually that there is always light does not necessarily help when ones only perception is darkness.
Gestation within the womb must happen within the shadow and must then be brought into the light as a physical form. In this, be it the creation of children or our fondest dream for accomplishments in our work, spirituality or individual beings, lies the potential for the greatest growth. When you work with the shadow side of things you will find that there is more light then there would be when you try to avoid the shadow. Always remember that shade is often welcomed on a very hot day.
