darkness

Darkness usually refers to ignorance or not knowing; unaware, unconscious or lack of light of understanding, awareness or knowledge.

"The secret of Light is its birth out of darkness." Over 3000 years ago, Taoist Lao Tzu penned the Tao Te Ching:

"Ever desireless, one can see the mystery.
Ever desiring, one can see the manifestations.
These two spring from the same source,
but differ in name: this appears as darkness.
Darkness within darkness.
The gate to all mystery."

Russell
""Clayed images of My imagining who know not Me in them are but dwellers of earth's dark. To sensed man the doors of My Kingdom are self-barred by darkness until the Light of Me in him is known by him as Me." [Atomic Suicide, page 239]

Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth
"Each thong represents a person's habitual thoughts, responses to people and events, prejudices, hates, animosities, anxieties, sorrows, all of which bind him down and shut out the Light from his inner vision drawn from the 'Creative Power'. Thus he enters into darkness but does not know it. He believes he is growing up and becoming mature in the ways of the world which will enable him to forge ahead and make 'good' - become successful - the aim of most people on earth.
In fact, the more mature he becomes and versed in worldly ways, the more densely do his chains and thongs imprison him within the grip of the twin IMPULSES of 'Bonding-Rejection'.
Furthermore, each chain is forged out of selfish and deceitful desires, greed, aggression, violence and rape. These chains hang heavy around him and burden the psyche, which is the 'creative consciousness power' deep within him. Chain and thong will bind him tighter with every passing year until he realizes what he is doing to himself and sincerely repents each thong and chain and makes due restitution to others whom he has harmed." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 1, page 17]

"As many of you are aware, you are entering a new phase of world history, during the course of which it will be realised that no longer is the great divide between the wealthy and the poor.
The great divide will be in consciousness. The divide will be between those who have been able to find entrance into the higher spiritual consciousness and radiate love and acceptance equally to all - friends and foes - and who make it their goal to radiate Divine Consciousness into every facet of their daily lives - and those who remain encased within their ego-drives, seeking domination of the weak. They may appear to succeed for a while - but eventually they will fail and their suffering in their self-created darkness will be great.
These Letters will be the means of your moving out of darkness into LIGHT." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 4, page 22]
