On the idea that destroying the ‘dark’ part of yourself elevates you?

The idea was or is this: So imagine if a rock is tying down a balloon. This ‘rock’ or object happens to be your said ‘dark’ aspect. Once it’s removed you (The balloon) will float to the heavens and no longer be attached to it?

How true is this and why did somebody imply instead it strands you?

I might have had it happen as a result of some emotional experiences, although idk to what degree and what ‘weakened’. Dealt with it by grounding myself to have a strong enough ‘willpower to live’ again by creating a list of purposes/business I want done first.

Idk if this might belong in philosophy but I’m talking in what people call ‘frequency’?

This was the nature of the idea I had before in some way the wish was granted previously last year - early this year?

“It” went but along with it also something related to ‘will to survive’ heavily and I needed to rest, find a way to compensate for that or a replacement.

Kinda similar in other threads you've started before:
topic70406.html
topic69622.html

Even the answer for this one is already given in yet other threads you've also started:

Shadow work.

You need to do shadow work and integrate ALL aspects of yourself together.

The lack of that integration is the rock that is preventing your balloon from flying.

Should this thread just get merged into one of those others? Since duplicate threads are a no-go?

Agreed.

Yoir darkness is there to stay. It is there because there is light within you as well. You cant have darkness without light to define it and Vice versa.

Yes. This is close to the best answer (imho) in Wizard's previous thread on this, which was along these lines:

Or Shadow is part of us. Just as an arm or leg is part of us. It is not a good idea to try to cut off or destroy a part of yourself. Actually it is a very bad idea!

Our Shadow is not an external malignant invasive force that has to be repelled.

Our Shadow is not a malfunctioning part of us, nor is it a diseased part of us.

When I stand in a light source, I cast a shadow. It relates to me - it belongs to me - it is not in the wrong place. It is where it belongs.

I think Shadow work is partly about being grounded in the totality of one's Self. We don't have to be at the mercy of our repressed Shadow. It is healthy and useful for us to be aware of it. (There must be a lot more to Shadow work. And I think I've drifted in and out of being an integrated person. I freely admit I have often been running round in circles chasing my projections on the world and repressing my ability to be whole and at peace with myself.)

This has been discussed before in previous threads, despite the originating question not being exemplified in the same manner.
