The Parable of the Lesser Light
“Two souls were in heaven. One soul said to the other, ‘I wish to descend to the Earth so that I can experience humiliation and indignity.’ The other soul said ‘OK, I will come with you, and cause you to suffer the humiliation and indignity that you wish to experience.’ The first soul asked ‘But why would you reduce your vibration level so much that you could descend to Earth and do these terrible things?’ And the second soul replied, ‘Because I Love You’.”
This parable is very powerful, especially because of the multiple metaphors involved:
-We are all souls, connected energetically as one;
-We vibrate at a dense level to be on this plane (the Earth);
-This plane is a denser vibrational level, which attracts denser vibrational experiences such as shame, humiliation, indignity, anger and guilt;
-The people inflicting these “hurts” on us are doing it because our soul requested this experience, in order for us to grow spiritually;
-The people inflicting these “hurts”’ have reduced their vibration level for us, because they love us.
It is an amazing paradox to think that the person causing harm to us, is doing it as an act of love.
