we fall into the dark night.
not everyone survives this.
we lose everything in this world that we use to elevate ourselves above others. your friends abandon you. you lose all your possessions. you lose your sanity. you fall into darkness and emptyness and depression NEVER to recover.
there is no escape.
what is really happening is the death of willfullness and greed and self-centeredness. the death of all of our dissonances that block love from flowing. this is where we discover that God is Love, and our job is to spread God's Love everywhere we go.
the universe wants to bless you.
