@H_Eart(h) There is nothing wrong with wanting a safer world and earth. Nothing wrong at all. Sometimes we associate words with good or bad. Some personality types (enneagram styles inparticular) sees almost everything as good or bad. Shadow doesn't equal bad. If you find yourself hearing the words shadow work or shadow, please don't think it's all bad, negative, and/or wrong.
So a shadow reason of wanting the world to be safer doesn't mean it's a negative or wrong or bad intention. Shadow means unconscious, we are unaware of it. And usually these unaware suppressed reasons and motives lead to sticky and tricky situations. So for example....a healer who says "I am just here to spread the love and help others..." (which can be a true positive intention and motive) that also has a dominate shadow of "i don't trust other's and the world isn't safe" can run into situations where that shadow of theirs can create overlays and filters when working with their clients, they can have projections arise and fall onto others, and like teal said, "if i can fix the world, it's safe FOR ME to be in...". So in this particular example, the issue isn't the world being unsafe as much as it is "I want to help others only because I want to find safety within the world."
When we are doing things we think and say and believe are all about others, but have the underlying shadow and motivation to serve ourselves, it's problematic in the sense that there's some inherent manipulation there, manipulating thyself to believe something more altruistic than the reality of our true motives, and especially in CPCP workers, it can create a messy kind of healing for the other person when the practitioner isn't very aware of their own self and their own shadow work.
ALL people do things to some degree to serve thyself. Like so, helping others can feel good to us. That's a reason that's serving ourselves. We are doing it to help them because that feels good for us. But it's not a bad or wrong reason. Serving ourselves isn't "wrong." It's just a problem when our motives are unconscious.
The idea and term bad and wrong and good and right are shrouded and based in judgement. It's essential to have a balance of judgement, because it keeps us safe...it helps us learn, it's human to judge. But often times, this judgement program that's running is unnoticed and living within the subconscious. And often is created through our childhood and experiences. So the point of all of this really is...the more aware we are of our reasons, our judgements, or intentions, our shadows....the "better" of a person we become. The more tuned into the self, the center, the more "in alignment" we become.
