After being fascinated with the content of what is for a while, there is a time of weariness and/or “dryness” as often described by those going through a dark night of the soul.
And this weariness with content and process helps us detach from all this and discover the ground it all happens within, and ourselves as that ground. As emptiness dancing.
This sounds fine and dandy when described briefly like this, but can entail a good deal of despair – proportional to the previous degree of attachment.
Of course, in hindsight it is all worth it. It is all worth it, all the suffering and drama from mistakenly exclusively identifying with this human self and possible previous incarnations as well. It is all revealed as emptiness dancing, no matter how serious it seemed at the time.
