Passing through the dark night of the soul is a rite of passage. It is a personal journey, with its power known only to the one who walks in and through it. As one is blessed enough to experience such a journey, its characteristics are unmistaken. At times its lonely and pulls at our deepest core urging us to learn its sacred teachings. We are confronted with our deceptions, manipulations, and hidden secrets, that only we know. We are asked, or prodded to live with more integrity and trust what is not yet known.
We walk through it for a reason. It's no accident when we journey through its maze. There is no way to rush its ending. It's more an emotional darkness rather than a circumstantial one.
It's a rite of passage whereby we are strengthened and live with a deeper sense of "I amness" as we complete this phase of our life's journey. Once we abandon the question, "How long?" we accept and allow the darkness to run its course. In many ways we befriend the nowness and become one with its power. We become grateful for its lessons and realize fear has been replaced with personal power.
In truth, we have created our dark night of the soul for reasons not clearly known. It's a creation from our own handiwork, with no one to blame. Everything - all that we create is for our Highest Good. The more we trust its flow, and not resist, the easier the journey becomes.
As challenging as it may be, the dark night of the soul is to be honored and cherished as a vast mystery that will eventually be revealed to us. It is here to teach us a most marvelous awakening.
And...Our lives we never be the same again
