Investigating a fuller spectrum of thoughts

In identifying thoughts about the dark night, I find several categories of these thoughts.

One is resistant thoughts to the dark night. Another is the thought that it’s a dark night and what it means. And a third is thoughts about it’s value.

I notice it’s helpful to question all of these.

(a) Finding the genuine gifts in the dark night helps release resistance to it.

(b) Questioning that it is a dark night helps me see it’s not solid or real. For instance, the dark night is a label only, it’s not a thing, and it’s equally much a brilliant day.

(c) And investigating and questioning my thoughts around it’s value helps me say goodbye to it. As long as I believe it’s valuable, there will be some resistance to let it go and move on to something else.

Note: This is from another post on the dark night.

I notice it’s helpful to (a) find the gifts in the dark night, and also (b) question my thoughts about the dark night, including that it is a dark night, and the ways it’s valuable. Finding the genuine gifts in it helps release resistance to it. Questioning that it is a dark night helps shift out of taking it as something solid or real. And investigating and questioning my thoughts around it’s value helps me say good bye to it.
