The Dark Night Of The Soul
He whose desire turns away from outer things,
reaches the place of the soul.
If he does not find the soul, the horror of emptiness will overcome him,
and fear will drive him with a whip lashing time and again in a desperate endeavor
and a blind desire for the hollow things of the world.
There can be no rebirth without a dark night of the soul,
a total annihilation of all that you believed in and thought that you were.
Someday, somewhere -
you'll find yourself,
and that, and only that, can be the happiest or bitterest hour of your life.
