This is “It”
I recently saw the movie “A Wrinkle in Time” which was an excellent movie that deals with such themes as consciousness, unity, family, fear, and love. In the movie, the antagonist is an entity referred to as “The It”. Here is my take on what “The It” truly represents.
We are all made in God’s image, which means that we are children of light. As children of light, what is true for us is that oneness, love, truth, and consciousness represents who and what we really are. If asked what the opposite of light is most would respond saying “darkness”. So if darkness is the opposite of light, then that also means that darkness represents separation, fear, all that is false, and unconsciousness. My belief is that “The It” represents darkness in the movie.
Here is another idea that I would like to purport: Because God is all there is and we are made in God’s image, that means that God is Light and we are children of light. What this also means is that there cannot truly be an opposite to light. With that said, darkness could only exist in the absence of light. So how does this work if God/Light is omnipresent? Though all of creation is made by God and thus an individual expression of God, some of us have forgotten this truth due to perceived separation, fear, falseness and the lack of consciousness. It is these ideas that allow us to believe the lie that we can choose something other than who we truly are- darkness. God has blessed us with free will which means we are allowed to choose that which we desire (even if we do not recognize that we have the option). Those of use who choose to believe in this lie decrease our light to the point where we no longer believe that it exists thus creating the illusion of the absence of light: this is what darkness truly is.
Thankfully, as long as God chooses to continue to bless us with life, we have the opportunity to choose differently and remember who we truly are, in doing so we will regain the brilliance of our individual light. We can then say “This is it!” to darkness and all that it represents. And so it is…

I was especially moved by the movie as well, Healing. There was something rather telling about an entity named “The It” so as to be able to be associated with “It” which supports or propels the belief in separation. I agree that darkness is the absence of light (an illusion) and that Fear is the absence of LOVE (also an illusion). There is no place that is not touched by the Light that is God and nothing that is not a result of Love. To believe otherwise is to believe in fairy tales, dreams, and illusions of separation. It is our focus that need change, only this change in perception will heal us of the errors in our thinking and return us to God/Light/Love.
