Emptiness Survival Kit. Part 4: Change The Lens. Day 32: You Have To Become Less.

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.

    Emptiness, the void, darkness, nothingness, uncertainty, abyss, existential dread, feeling numb or like “something is missing” are all symptoms of what I call the emptiness practice (also known as “the dark night of the soul”). It is a tough practice. This Emptiness Survival Kit is based on my learnings in the last couple of years and is a summary of key quotes, tips and practices that helped me and I hope help you to get through it. I plan to post daily for a sum total of 42 posts. See you on the other side.
