Expelling Inner Darkness of Ignorance Is Prime Purpose of Life
Humans have the potential to illuminate themselves by divinising their in-self. It has been revealed all of us are dormant divine. "We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us," states Marianne Williamson.

Martin Luther King, Jr. once had remarked, "Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."

I had written earlier on scratchmysoul blog that inner darkness was a state of consciousness that could be ignorant of enlightenment or self-realization as supreme purpose of life.

In other words, inner darkness consists of the denial of the spiritual, non-physical, divine and illuminating existence of life.

We need to realize that the physical, sensual and materialistic living leads to dense mental darkness or gloom and we must seek the inner light of spiritual awakening to dispel the inner darkness.

Here are a few haiku on mental darkness and awakening.

We're deep in darkness

Stuck into a silken web.

In-lamp light redeems.


Know your ignorance -

caused by the conditioned mind ?

deluded, dark mind.


Self-knowledge is light

to redeem us from darkness

of ignorance, strife.
