Sub-Personalities

One of the things I have realized in the past week is that even sub-personalities have both good and bad attributes.  I have touched my much younger self--the part which was traumatized--and given it love and succor.  On the one hand, it presents itself as innocent and joyful.  As I get to know it, though, I realize that it also has a very primitive anger in it, a very primitive rage.  Even small children are capable of acts of violence, given the right circumstances.

It is good to discover such things.  The only way we can learn to trust ourselves is to know ourselves.  And only in trusting ourselves can we be sufficiently spontaneous to let good things flow through us into the world, and in so doing be regularly transformed and evolved.

Quite often, to touch some deep inner reality is to denude that self of its power.  It can only operate effectively in darkness.  Light is always an antiseptic and healer, even if the healing causes some discomfort.  I am used to discomfort.  This is a good thing.
