Inquiry: It’s a dark night

It’s a dark night of the soul.

(In the technical sense.)

Is it true?


Can you know for certain it’s true?


What happens, how do you react, when you believe that thought?

I feel comforted. I see I take refuge in that belief.

I feel special, different. There is a sense of separation, which is uncomfortable.

If I didn’t have that thought, I am afraid I would think there is something wrong with me.

Who would you be without that thought?

Relating to what’s here and now.

See what’s the next step in my life.

More engaged with life, what’s here now.


a. It’s not a dark night of the soul.

1. It’s not a label, and “the dark night” is a label.

2. I cannot find where it begins or ends in time or content. It has no clear boundaries.

b. It’s a bright day of the soul.

1. It brings things to light, to awareness. It’s a bright day of the soul – that seems very true.
