This is the nature of a global, dark night of soul, and it is what happens during a major shift of an age. This is what is going on within you right now. This is what is going on outside of you in the world right now. It is why everything feels so chaotic, out of balance and filled with looping themes. It feels insane, confusing, deeply triggering, and even enraging. It is all part of the process. This is a hard journey that we are in together. It can be mind and soul bending, but we are going to see this through ... because the only way out of this is through it.
"When we no longer know what to do, we have come to our real work and when we no longer know which way to go, we have begun our real journey." ~ Wendell Berry
The Star Elders say (when we are in a dark night of the soul) "The truth will be as lies, and the lies will be as truths." This is the nature of a global dark night of soul ... to not know which way is up. Nearly everything transmitted out into the world, in all forms of media, communication, platforms, social media, others opinions, etc..., is simply contaminated. Some of this information will resonate with you, because there will be some elements of truth within, making it easier to accept it as whole truth. But the fact is that nearly everything, in all forms, will also have woven within it elements of twisted untruths, miscommunications, denials, biases, and even some controlling agendas. Memory and consciousness will also get strange. We might remember details or events that we had with others that never happened, and vice versa. Our dream time might feel more real than when we are awake. Most of this disorientation to actual truth is simply innocent as the confusion and the dissolution of this closing age is effecting the consciousness of every living human being is some way or another.
In this global dark night of the soul, it is normal to experience levels of truth that are twisted beyond recognition by the grip of dying, past programs and out of date, social perspectives. This is a time where we are standing on "reality quicksand!" In order not to drown, most of us will gravitate toward a perspective, or theme, based on our life experience, belief system and biases that may or may not create a blindness to the actual truth that resides hidden within all this chaos. This gives us a temporary, faux life line to hang onto. We may find ourselves quickly and adamantly defending ourselves for our beliefs and biases without taking a breath and thinking it all through. I bet that some of you have had the experience of getting triggered by something that you were reading; then you quickly reposted it, only to discover that you had read it through your anxiety and fear and gotten the message all wrong. Most beings are working really hard to stay balanced and in control of reality. As we attempt to hold on, we become an over-reactive, collective consciousness. This is dangerous to our spiritual centeredness and balance.
The fact is, there really is no control in a true dark night of an age, and this is how we truly know that this is what is happening in our world today. This time can only offer us a scary and deep free fall into the great unknown. So please be gentle with yourself. Be gentle to people you can no longer have a civil conversation with right now, because they are hanging on the best they can, as are you. Even if we are all divided in ways that we could have never imagined before, we are still ONE, and we are ALL part of the human race. This is all a normal part of the process.
During this time, there will be many tsunami-like waves rushing through your reality. It will be normal and even expected to feel all-encompassing, self-doubt in so many ways and directions that it will be mind and soul bending. A dark night can and will be devastating to your ego and your old reality. But this isn't just a personal dark night of the soul; it is a global one bringing debilitating collective confusion. This is what happens when there are uncountable and highly polarizing rabbit holes for us to fall into out there. The fact is that we will not be able to find lasting truth outside of ourselves right now. Universal truth is never found externally from you in the first place.
In a dark night of the soul, what happens is that most every door of possibility will close, and only one small door is left open into a new reality. It is like finding a needle in a hay stack. This reminds me of the parable ... "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God". Of course, this was written a long time ago in a very different world. But there is still truth here. Now we know money isn't evil. But it is the power, greed, selfishness, and corruption that can go with material wealth that is evil, especially when it is in the hands of ones who are not living from their center. It also asks the question that if we have a lot to hold onto in this life, would we make the leap through the eye of a needle into the new, elevated realty, or would we hang back and hold on to our material possessions?
