Perhaps the most serious thing about the present time is the creation of a great cloud of darkness and fear, started by what I am compelled to call the enemy and fed by human beings all over the world as they react to the media with its insistent focus on doom and disaster. This affects everyone and you can often sense it beneath an appearance of normality.
For those of us who believe there is more to this than meets the eye, and that the real purpose and long term goal may be quite other than what they appear to be, it is necessary to fight back. I mean fight back spiritually. It is a spiritual war we are engaged in and the weapons we use are different to regular war. Chief among them is the mind but not just the mind as the organ of thought. Thought is important. Right thought, thought based in understanding, is very necessary now more than ever but there is something else and that is imagination. The imagination is a powerful weapon which we should use to counter the spreading miasma of fear.
We must combat darkness with light though not necessarily light in the abstract sense which is hard to visualise for most people for any length of time. However, colour is the spiritual expression of light. Colours are qualities and they create psychological, even spiritual, effects. I believe the visualisation of the colours of blue and gold could aid in the dispelling of this growing darkness. Why not set aside a few minutes each day in which you sit quietly and visualise a bright, vivid, azure blue light, flecked with gleaming darts of shining gold? Intensify this visualisation as you proceed and project it out into the psychic atmosphere of our planet. This might conjure up the image of earnest meditators sitting around trying to stop war and hunger or whatever but it is less abstract than that, more practical, and, by focusing on something real, namely colour, easier to bring to life in the mind than vague and generalised pious hopes. Practise it as a form of contemplation or silent prayer, though a few words to accompany it would doubtless add to its power.
If you are a practical 21st century person, you might think this is a lot of nonsense but I have been assured it is effective, certainly on a personal level but it can also be on a more universal one. When the darkness gathers, it should not go unchallenged.
