Light vs Dark

I have empathized with fallen angels...

I am near spiritually full at this point in my life.  I have faith in God, in His love for me and in all that He promises me.  But there once was a time in my life, when I did not.

As a rebellious, heart-twisted teenager (LOOONG ago, I simply must add...), I dabbled in things I had no business dabbling in.  I wore clothes and pendants around my neck that loudly stated who I was and what I believed.  In fact, to most, I was downright frightening...

To this day, there are times, I must admit, that I am drawn to depths both dark and unknown.  I want to know.  I want to feel...  And I want someone to pull me back and save me from myself.

When I first saw the above graphic, I was mesmerized.  Which angel was I?  Could I be a little of both?  Is one more powerful? More enticing?  More fun?  More loved?

Sometimes, I wonder what good it does... Wondering.


"Pay attention to your dreams - God's angels often speak directly to our hearts when we are asleep." 

~Quoted in The Angels' Little Instruction Book by Eileen Elias Freeman

i see kids (teens) wearing goth clothes, having mohawks, mocking God, wearing jewelry that promotes Wiccan or satanism.....with nose rings, dyed hair...i can keep going on and on and i never ever judge them...in fact, those are the teens i always speak to...hello i will say. Every single one has always looked me in the eye and said hello. We all experiment, we all have flaws, we all spend 99% of our teen years trying to figure out WHAT THE HELL are we doing here....i understand you SO well....dont regret your past or what you believed in....just learn from it.

Gee, i need to take my own advice, huh?!
i love you

Everything that you have been through in your life has lead you to the person that you are today.  Don't discount the importance of your history to your present.  As far as which angel you are, you are probably a bit of both.  The yin and the yang exists in each of us to one degree or another.  The question is....which angel do you allow to have a voice in your world?

I've come to learn to embrace the good as well as the bad side of my temperment. We have elements of both within our own humanity. I tend to believe in Shamanism. So many people mistakenly believe it follows the same line as Wiccan. In the end it's a belief in the simple beauty of the world around you. I often wonder if I would be the person I am today without having those days of dark oblivion. Honestly they helped weld me into who I am. I embrace it all the dark along with the light. One balances out the other in our lives. It seems if we deny one or the other , we find ourselves lacking or missing elements of ourselves. Your in my thoughts. (Hugs) Indigo

There's a part of both in all of us, and sometimes it's not even a day-to-day thing. We're always curious about the "other side" of life, but what makes the difference in most lives is knowing when to say no. No "good" person ever made it through life without tempations or occasional missteps. I think you turned out just fine.

Never stop wondering, Chelle......never.  Both angels are equally strong, and they inbed themselves in our souls.  That's why we always have such a push/pull thing going on!

Love you

This is an interesting entry. I agree with your commenters. We all have that other side of us. It's there...and anyone who denies it is lying. Unfortunately, some in society don't learn to say no, or to control the dark urges.
Very thought provoking entry.
