Touching the shadow is deep compassion with parts of ourselves we avoid with all we have. Up until now we've heard of having compassion for others but this work is having compassion with rejected parts of ourselves or parts we at all costs avoid seeing.
How can I really have compassion for You if I can't walk in the shoes of parts of myself? see, compassion is not trying to fix or change these parts in me. It's really the opposite of cutting off and rejection. There's no cognitive understanding in shadow work. understanding really separates u from what you are trying to understand.
Shadow work is really standing in the shoes of the shadow as in compassion or as in art where we become part of what we are relating to. Like we can't sing a song about depression if we not depressed. Understanding is really still a form of voyeurism. shadow work is more a deeper knowing by becoming something, feeling deep respect and connection to deeply repressed inner parts not knowing it from outside which really disconnects like when we study something.
It's indwelling in a part of ourselves that we ourselves do want to see or feel. So shadow work is not feeding the poor; it's feeling poverty. You see feeding the poor is still running from the deep experience of poverty and loss. Shadow work is Not knowing laws out there but feeling what it is like to be treated unjustly. It's not understanding the distraught, it's feeling what it is like to be hopeless. These repressed parts in us seek not to be fixed, but to be heard and innerstood. That's what heals. U see this is what ur shadow is really wanting u to feel deeply within and out of the dreams. It's being fully naked and not using anything to cover up or make up whatever u are down in the undercurrents of that detached cognitive knowing feeling. This is why it is deep knowing...by embodying and experiencing...and nothing that can be caught neatly in a Q&A format. But where the questioner deeply touches and embodies the answer in oneself.
