The whole point of a dark night of the soul is not knowing. If we were aware of what was going on, we would disrupt or sabotage the process. We need to not know to get through it while allowing it to run its course and achieve God’s goals… The main purpose of it all is not to attain something. Rather, there’s a certain consciousness — an awareness — that grows in the person who experiences this night. This will later lead to a full awakening — living from that ‘higher mind’… That’s why the journey of true spirituality is often referred to as a path of descent. You have to become less.
