Navigating the Dual Forces of Light and Dark as a Beacon of Change

Have you ever felt like you’re a bright light in a sometimes dark world? Bentinho talks about how being a beacon of light doesn’t just attract more light but can also draw in darkness. This is especially true for those of us who have chosen to be here, in this diverse and chaotic mix of cosmic streams, to serve and uplift others.

Imagine our world as a vast ocean, where every soul is a unique current, blending together to form a complex cosmic soup. In this soup, some lights shine brighter than others, not because they’re better, but because they have a different role to play. These bright spots, or “wanderers” as Ben calls them, are here not just for their own lessons but to serve others with love and wisdom.

However, this brightness makes them targets. Not just for admiration but for opposition. Why? Because their light can transform confusion into harmony, making them a beacon for both support and challenge.

Ben shares a powerful insight: being a target is not about being a victim. It’s about recognizing that your light has power. Power to attract, power to influence, and yes, power to be challenged. But here’s the twist – these challenges are not just obstacles. They’re opportunities for growth, for strengthening your light, and for truly understanding the depth of your service.

He tells us about the delicate dance between light and dark forces. How the dark seeks to dim the bright spots through doubt, fear, and confusion. Yet, this is not a battle to be fought with fear but with awareness and love. By understanding our weaknesses and embracing our strengths, we can navigate these challenges with grace.

But here’s the most beautiful part: When faced with darkness, the most potent response is love. Not as a strategy to annoy the dark forces but as a genuine expression of our essence. By loving even those forces that seem against us, we transcend the game. We turn challenges into stepping stones, darkness into a catalyst for even greater light.

Ben reminds us that we are not mere physical beings caught in a cosmic battle. We are eternal, divine, capable of transcending darkness with our inner light. It’s not about fighting against the dark but rising above it, understanding it, and using it as a means to refine our light.

So, are you a target? If you shine bright, perhaps. But remember, being a target also means you have a significant role to play. Your light is powerful, capable of transforming not just yourself but the world around you. Embrace it, nurture it, and let it shine unapologetically.

As we navigate the dual forces of light and dark, let’s remember the words of Psalm 23:4. We are never alone, and in the presence of our inner divine light, no shadow can dim our path.


“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” – Martin Luther King Jr.
