eyes droop before

It is one thing to theorise about Dark Night and it being transformative – quite another to stop judging yourself in the process – instead allow yourself to be, trusting in the (as yet) unknown meaning, purpose, direction.

P.S. In English the expression ‘everything happens of a reason’ is – cheating. It should be ‘… for a purpose’.

There is a section in the christian new testament where Jesus is asked by his disciples ‘what has this man done (to deserve whatever ill had befallen him)?’ and Jesus answers something like:’ It is so that the glory of eternal life become apparent in him/to him’. Pure scandal that, to this day. Unless lived.

    What nuance are highlighting here?

  2. To me reason can be interpreted as purpose easily. Things happen and we hopefully learn something. Though I know so many who simply float along in life and never see any purpose, reason, meaning to what they experience….
