Change can be easy, really---by changing your thoughts, you change your feelings, and thus change your actions. In 21st century, we have better skills to deal with darkness, and we are more enlightened and aware than ever before in history.

Change is a mythological journey, where we hear call; go with uncertainty into unknown dangers, until we finally find our way home. You can become what your spirit intended you to be---whole, perfect and free. To free yourself, you must step into light, be brave and take action. Although you may feel safe in dark because it is what is familiar to you, safety is within light. Where there is light, there is growth. Once you have stepped on path of transformation, you are well on your way to a new experience. You can no longer deny growth that is taking place within you. If you do, you will extinguish growth. You must honor growth. It is like a growing tree, if you cut trunk, it will die. If you deny your own growth, you will kill light within you—the golden light of love, peace, and knowingness. You must stay on path of illumination. You are where you are on spiritual path because of many things you have experienced and learned. You have knowledge. But that is not enough, you must apply that knowledge by taking action and making smart decisions. You cannot stand still. You must keep walking on path, progressing forward. The soul is a manifestation of God’s power. Your soul (like all souls) is infinite, with no beginning and no end. Each soul is an important part of universal plan for humanity’s growth and evolution. We all have responsibility to illuminate and enlighten ourselves. Illumination is higher state of consciousness. Higher consciousness is constant, ever-changing awareness of our psychological truth. It is an awareness not only of positive, conscious intent, but also of negative, destructive intent that may lie in consciousness. The spiritual person understands that they must be aware of unconscious attitudes that prevent positive manifesting. They know that in order to create a beautiful, fulfilling life fears that lie in unconscious must be brought to surface, looked at in light of reason, worked through and dissolved.
