The Realm of Light was a harsh, blinding place, for those who were not accustomed to its splendor. The light always vanquished the darkness and exposed that which was hidden. Dark secrets, lies, and embarrassments were all exposed in the light of truth. Setting its people free from their own illusions. It was a powerful and terrifying light, intended for good…intended.
The beings of light were created at a much higher energy frequency, elevating them to near celestial beings. In fact, the first Guardians of The Realm of Light were angels from the Realm of Goodness that focused on the power of truth. It wasn’t long before denizens of Light were exposed for who and what they truly were. Everyone knew and understood their strengths and weaknesses. This allowed the populace to trust and rely on one another, because everyone was doing something that played to their strengths and they knew what to expect from each other. This made for a generally peaceful realm. At least for a while.
As the years passed, and The Guardians became more estranged from their original Realm of Goodness, their ideas began to change. The Light had exposed all the citizens for who and what they were, their strengths, weakness, goodness, and evils. Though this truth helped the populace to work together in a unifying manner, it segregated the angels from them. The Guardians were of goodness and truth, the evils and dark deeds of the people made the angels feel disgust.
These dirty, filthy commeners needed a cleansing and The Guardians did not know how to go about it at first. It didn’t take long for them to realize that the people were already accustomed to manual labor. If they were worked harder, longer, with less sustenance, perhaps the sin and the filth could be burned away. The Guardians pushed the people making them erect tall monuments in the name of truth and goodness. Castles, thrones, temples, statues, were made of the cleanest, finest materials as the workers began to starve and waste away. The angels became so full of themselves that they set themselves up as kings and queens and eventually gods to be worshipped. The Realm of Light was a beautiful, glorious place filled with glistening, golden buildings and dazzling, sparkling streets to emulate the Devine Realm of Goodness, like a home away from home. Except The Realm of Light was nothing like the Realm of Goodness. The people of The Realm of Light were dying and the rulers were without compassion. The truth that exposed everyone had allowed for harsh judgements to pass and executions to be doled out.
Eventually the Guardians were dethroned by people that had had enough abuse. A new ruler took the throne. He wasn’t necessarily a good ruler, but he was a better ruler than The Guardians.
