“Make a clean break with all cutting, backbiting, profane talk. Be gentle with one another, sensitive. Forgive one another as quickly and thoroughly as God in Christ forgave you.” Ephesians‬ ‭4:31-32‬ ‭MSG‬‬

Good morning, EmpoweredOne,

There come along these times the dark dragon visits. He backs me up against a wall and wakes me night after night at 2 AM. He screws with the knobs in my cerebral cortex, causing panic attacks and other miseries. And, he keeps on til I get to the numb place: “I don’t even care”. 

You’ve been there, too?

I’ve learned here is the place … the place where I finally release myself into the freedom of giving myself permission to fall. 

So kill me. So silence me. So lie to me. So sue me. So whatever. I’m done. I give up. 

I don’t care. 

I don’t care. 

I don’t care. 

It’s the magic words, the release from hell.  

Enter, the Holy. 

The attachment is broken, the obsession withers, the fever breaks and I surrender.  

I no longer want anything but Christ. Nothing but His peace that moves back in with His presence. I no longer need things to turn out my way or to go away. Don’t need revenge. And finally, I am open-minded. I can allow in a thousand options. I can choose anything now, because I don’t care about the outcome. I’ve done the right thing. I’ve done what was asked. I’ve done all I can do. I don’t care anymore. That’s where Spirit lives, in the vortex of a thousand options, infinite opportunities, and an open mind to let His power consume me.  

Sometimes, the darkest place is what takes me to the Sweeping Light and a freedom that tastes as good as a hot bath feels. 

Maybe it takes a dark dragon to break the gory grip of the mundane? Or, the bitter. Maybe it takes a dragon to bring the release point … the wonder of letting go and being lifted or shifted in a new direction. 

What a are you still holding on to? Attachment is the dragon’s food. It is what stokes its fire. You have a dark power that is stronger than your will power – but it is not stronger than God Almighty in you. This dark place clears the way for the God of the Universe, your True Life Source, to rise in you. He stems from within the deepest place in you and does not need to be controlled.

All-empowering. 

All-consuming. 

His real name is love.

Wake up. 

Detach the dragon. 

Now, open. 

Go.
