Long hard road out of hell

The greatest darkness is the shadow ,  the shadow you fail to recognize  – yet it never leaves you….  my greatest enemy – myself. ….. no one but myself can inflict such harm upon myself as I have . My greatest hell – my mind….. an endless vastness of a knowing…. a knowing that beckons me to listen…. listen to the chaos within myself…. beckons me to call forth my shadow, that no longer wishes to be silent…. as if Pandora herself is screaming for me to “Open the box ” ….. release….. all the shadows, all the horror, all the pain…. this ” lid ”  , my mind, can no longer contain….. broken wide open…. I scream – I cry – I cower into the corners of my most darkest secrets,  holding onto them as if they are the lasts breaths of me…. why ?

For years I’ve let my shadow claim me… locked away – suffering. … it is I, who needs to claim my shadow… I , who needs to face it… it is a part of me I can no longer deny. 

I call you forth, my shadow …. help me to unlock my Lemarchand box, my Lament Configuration  – it’s tune I am familiar. … I’m ready to see all the ” sites ” you have to show me. Bring me to the dimensions within myself, that will show me my truth….. raise me to the planes of existence that I have forgotten  – I hold the key. 

“everybody has a light and a dark side, and neither can exist without the other.”
Marilyn Manson, The Long Hard Road Out of Hell

Good and evil exists within us. Carl Jung looked at the subject of good vs evil in a very different light. According to him, one cannot deny the existence of the dark side in oneself. We all are susceptible to negative emotions, consciously or unconsciously, that is why chemistry recognizes so many negative hormones within a human body. Jung named this particular existing “dark side” in humans – Shadow. A shadow is “sum of all personal and collective psychic elements which, because of their incompatibility with the chosen conscious attitude, are denied expression in life.” Jung wrote, “Everyone carries a shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is.”
