Have you ever thought about that this way…the fingers of the two hands in their logo are intertwined holding the earth and one finger, either white or black, is going to be first in this 1D drawing? It's all a matter of perspective. You can either see imbalance, or you can see perfect balance…it's your choice. If the fingers are intertwined, the black finger is going to be the finger on the outside on the back of this drawing, so to speak. They can't please all of the people all of the time, but I think they're doing their best
I, myself, am working toward the light and love at this point in my journey. Yet, I am also trying to balance that with everything I have learned from CH and Antiquatis. Those things seem to be at odds with each other…light and love in comparison with science and knowledge. I have been struggling with all of it together as when I get comfortable with the light and love concepts, something from CH or Antiquatis make me question and sometimes doubt them. I'm trying to get my head (ego/mind) and my heart (intuition/feeling) to work together, not against each other. What I saw in the posts from this thread after you and Lozion were, in my opinion, intuitively comfortable with the idea presented by Ubuntu, was that a small seed of doubt was planted and your ego/mind stepped in and started making you analyze the concepts and doubt what you originally thought/felt as something you really wanted to do. I think analyzing and questioning things are important parts of growing, but sometimes you just need to let go and have faith (and that, I know, is a big lesson for me!).
At first, I was excited at the prospect of being shown another project for an attempt at sustainable living. I understand it may be something, if not confusing, that I'd be willing to make a decision simply based on their logo, but I've learned to trust my intuition, and I don't feel like they're trying so much to please people with their logo, as much as it's a visual representation of the statement the organization is trying to make. I see it, and yes, because there's more white finger than black finger, I feel that the statement is 'More Light'. It may seem arbitrary, or even silly of me to make a decision based on this, but that's what I've done. It's just as you said, a matter of perspective. To me, it's also a matter of choice.
I was a lightworker. I'll tell you from experience, there is nothing quite like the high that comes from being high on happy. And there's nothing wrong with it, for me it was needed, so that I'd be able to relay this exact information. If you're choosing a side, that's fine, because it's your choice to make. I realized that choosing the light over the dark was not balance. You may hear that you have to love negative emotions out of existence, but that, for me at least, doesn't work. I see "negative" emotions are teachers. The ego, while it does need in most cases some tempering since we live in a society that promotes ego living and creates an imbalance, is not something that has to be gotten rid of. If it weren't for ego, we wouldn't be the unique individuals that we are. I'd take this logic into '5d' chat rooms, and without fail I would have "light"workers attacking me and calling me a paid shill. It didn't feel like an illogical query, so the reaction I received wasn't what I'd expected from a group of such loving people. I could leave and come back later, and as long as it was all happy, happy, happy, love, love, <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3's all over the place, all was good.
Please don't take my experience as an attempt to dissuade you from taking the path of Light and Love. If that's where you feel you need to be, then be there with all of your heart. Just remember, always to think for yourself and question everything. There is so much information out there, and a lot of it feels really really good, but never doubt any little signal in you that says "Wait a second.."
Something I feel that I benefited from being a lightworker was teaching myself to feel unconditional love for all beings. That lasts in me today. I feel like the natural emotive state of this being that we are, the Logos, Intelligent Infinity, God, Goddess, the All, or whatever else anyone wants to refer to it as, is that of unconditional love. This doesn't mean that we're being neglected when things are going wrong. It means we love what we are so much, that we are willing to allow our selves to learn the hard lesson. I've also learned that even though I love everything for existing, I don't have to like it all. And because of this, I'm working to educate myself so that when the time comes and things fall into place, and it feels right, and I know it's the right thing for me, I'll go in with everything that I am. The prospect of the Kheb Monastery feels right. Until then, if I can take part in other projects, get out of this small town bubble again and do with my life what I'm driven to do.. work on rapport based, sustainable living communities that aren't governed by society at large, then I will absolutely throw myself in headfirst, and soak in the experience.
I've written you what feels like a novel, so I'll leave you with this and then I'm headed to time/space. I've had faith, now I have confidence
I wish you fare travels on your journey. Much love! _/|\_
