7 4. When unique light is trapped in shadow, it does not remain static When unlived life stagnates and devolves, it reemerges as shadow qualities Unlived Passion Taking Anger into Account of Shadow You feel the full depth of the goodness and aliveness of your life only when you are fully living your full story Shadow is a lie about your Unique Self. Shadow is a lie about your essential identity Shadow integration does not mean to integrate shadow qualities. Shadow integration does mean to reclaim your unlived life that is in darkness Joy is your life energy. Joy is a by-product of Unique Self living The technology for shadow integration is love. Shadow integration effects a transformation of identity. Love is the evolutionary force that transmutes shadow to light....
