What are people’s opinions about purposefully being people’s shadows? This is what I’ve been doing for a long time and in the past few months very deliberately, whereas before it was half conscious, half unconscious - also before I was aware I was doing it but couldn’t actually deliberately stop doing it - it was a big part of my personality really. Here is a poem I wrote about it, partly also in relation to another person, a good friend, who was also shadows of mine at times, I believe purposefully, but perhaps it was partly unconsciously for him as well…
I used to think it was very helpful for people to learn as much as possible abiut shadows, even in this covert way… I don’t think it’s a healthy thing anymore. I did used to think it helpful for everyone because it can help people grow so much. But now I think it isn’t worth people feeling such negative emotions and maybe even getting negative karma from shadowboxing… I think this might be a Turqoise trait of showing people greater glimpses of their entire selves, and removing the veil for them into greater awareness, because this can be gained from greater Wholeness of one’s being, I think. I’d be interested in people’s thoughts on this. I feel I’ve gained a lot of insight in the past few months around this topic <3 and would be happy to discuss and share them.
Shadows in the False Light
Shadows are drawn
In the light.
They take to being found out,
Because they’re there to show us something.
They arrive and depart,
Hoping we’ve been expanded.
