The Dark Night of the Soul

We are crucified and resurrected time and time again until like Spring, new life is found in old bones of what was, what is, and that which is still to come. We will die a thousand deaths in this lifetime just so we can experience the breath and fire and hope of what it means to really be alive.
 
“The dark night is a purgation of all sensible appetites for the external things of the world, the delights of the flesh, and the gratification of the will. That is why the poem proclaims that the soul departed when its house was stilled, the appetite asleep in the soul…” – Saint John of the Cross
