“Ancient myths talk about the need sometimes to ‘descend into the underworld’, to live in darkness for awhile, to sit in ashes so as to move to a deeper place inside of life; the mystics talk about ‘dark nights of the soul’ as necessary to bring about maturity.

All of these images point to the same deep truth, sometimes in order to grow we must first fall apart, go into the dark, lose our grip on what’s normal, enter into a frightening chaos, lose our everyday securities, and be carried in pain to a place where, for all kinds of reasons, we weren’t ready to go on our own.”
