I was reading another LOA coach’s blog the other day, and sort of wondering why I no longer felt resonance with her work. I used to follow this coach pretty religiously, but over time just started to go my own way.
That’s not a problem, of course, but it made me wonder what it was about her that I wasn’t resonating with.
Well I soon found out, because in the post I was reading, she started talking about being a lightworker, how she needs to shine her light in the world, how she’s tired of the darkness in the world, and that she feels we’re in a battle between light and dark.
After I got done cringing, I realized something important about myself that I hadn’t quite put into words:
I’m a darkworker.
I suddenly knew this at the core of my being. If she’s a lightworker, then there’s no other word for me but darkworker.
What on earth is a darkworker? Why would I call myself one?
I’m not here to shine my light. I know that there are no problems in the world, no darkness to fight or overcome, no one to be healed or saved.
Of course, there’s darkness. But this darkness is more like the warm embrace of the night, the mystery of the expansive universe, the infinite potentiality of the unmanifest. It’s the chaos of consciousness, the free will by which we choose our paths.
It’s not the monster under the bed (unless it has to be for a while), or the corruption of society. That sort of imagined darkness is illusory, playing out only in the mind of the lightworker.
I am not here to give myself to the world in some grand, heroic display of self-sacrifice or altruism. I’m not even here to help most people, because most people are too mired in the chains that keep them looking at the shadows on the wall that they’re nowhere close to even fathoming a deeper reality. Such people I leave to their own devices.
I’m here to get what I want out of life. And I’ll leave others to do the same, because I believe in the fundamental Law of Thelema, “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.” That means I’m under no compunction to make you happy, nor will I try because it’s not my job. I will do exactly and only what I will.
I’m here for joy, for creating, for experiencing everything life has to offer, and I believe—I know—that the Universe will support me in that endeavor because I’m the master of my reality. Demonic forces will bend the fabric of reality to my will, because, in the end, the Universe is here to serve my desires. And yours, too, of course, if you embrace this path.
This is the path of the darkworker. I’m happy to claim that title because there needs to be an alternative to all the talk about lightworkers.
If you’d like to walk this path, too, I think you’d be perfect for my upcoming course, preliminarily called 81 Days to Effortlessness. The path of the darkworker is not about force and opposition, but is instead about intentional effortlessness—working with the Universe and yet allowing it to conform to your desires. It’s a careful balance that can be hard to meet, but in this course, you’ll learn exactly how to do so.
If interested, just reach out and let me know, as the course is not quite launched yet. If you express your interest prior to the official launch of the course when registrations are actually accepted, you’ll get an early bird discount. So, I hope that you’ll join me on this path!
