Darkening of the Light: Witnessing the End of an Era . Part 2
by Llewellyn Vaughn-Lee PhD

 

 

Editor's Note from Janet Gillett: This sneak peek into Llewellyn Vaughn-Lee's newest book embodies his insightful exploration of the inner world and how this spark can bring revitalized energy to the world, healing both ourselves and the world.

 

Continued from Darkening of the Light: Witnessing the End of an Era Part 1

 

And slowly, gradually, for a time it seemed this shift was taking place: for a time the darkness dissolved and there was hope in the planet; there was a spark of remembrance, an awakening of an ancient joy, the joy that belongs to life when it is recognized as sacred, before the time of division, when there is the knowing that all is One. And gradually a spring came again, and the trees and the animals laughed and thought for a time that their voices would be heard. And with this spring, the knowing returned, the ancient knowing that includes all of life. And all this was welcomed.

And on the human stage there was the beginning of a spiritual reawakening. Over the last decades in the West we have been given greater access to spiritual techniques and practices to help us step out of the world of the ego into the bigger, unified dimension of the Self. Spiritual knowledge that had been hidden for centuries began to be returned to us: the knowledge of shamans and yogis, the wisdom of mystics and monks. Spiritual disciplines that had been practiced in secret became accessible, books that once were hidden in remote libraries were readily available. We began once again to have ways to access the spiritual knowledge of our own soul. The idea of "spiritual awakening" no longer belonged to just a select few, but became a possibility for many people, and even for the world itself. In some countries spiritual persecution remained, but in the West there was a spiritual renaissance that had not been seen for many centuries. The signs of spiritual transformation were more and more visible like buds in springtime. And the spark of light speeded up this transformation, helped life's magic to return, its real spiritual nature to become more visible.

But the darkness of human desire fought back, together with the power structures that did not want any change. The darkness of possessiveness and the evil of greed now walked with heavy boots over the face of the whole world. Globalization meant more exploitation rather than unity.

Even the bright lights of spiritual awakening were obscured by the buying and selling of the marketplace—what should be given freely was commercialized and exploited. And slowly the light started to go out. And no one seemed to notice. Everyone was so busy, their attention was lost, caught in the many distractions and demands of daily life. No one seemed to notice that the joy was retreating, that the hope was disappearing. The trees noticed, the birds noticed, the rivers knew of the light being lost. But for so many centuries we had forgotten how to listen to the trees, how to hear the birds or the rivers. We no longer knew how to read the signs. And so we did not notice what was happening: how the light that was given was being swallowed up, how a spark was becoming lost. And many voices tried to speak to humanity, voices within nature, voices of indigenous peoples and others. But these voices were not heard, or if they were heard they were ignored. And so the light receded until its spark was finally lost. And without this spark, this light, there could be no real change: nothing new could be born. And this is the great unspoken tragedy of today. This is what has happened to the soul of humanity and the soul of the world.

But people behave as if nothing has happened. This for me is a great mystery, this complete denial of what was given and what was lost. People continue with their daily affairs, their buying and selling, their dreams and desires. And they seem to notice nothing, and yet in their souls something is missing. A note is no longer present, a color in the spectrum of the soul is missing, a joy has fled. And now the future is very different—because that note, that color, would have allowed something to happen that cannot now take place. Instead humanity must continue without a certain dream being born, without a certain wonder being made present, without a quality of life's oneness coming alive. Humanity must continue in this way because it did not take responsibility for what was given—it did not remember....
