A dark night of the soul is not about surviving, or even overcoming a difficult experience. It is about going into the depth of the experience and allowing it to lay us bare. It is not about triumph or finding solutions to our problems. Instead, it is about following the divine thread which leads down into our soul’s core to where there are actually no answers at all. There is nothing, only emptiness, and resting there in that emptiness.
