398-5-The Dark Night

“Have you ever heard of “The Dark Night of the Soul?” How do we know if we are in it?

Today we continue our series of “A Course in Darkness” with a look at The Dark Night of the Soul. The term itself makes us feel like we might understand what this experience is like, but as you’ll see, that is usually not the case.

Join me now as I try and describe the Dark Night and its true purpose, with the hope that if we ever find ourselves in its grasp, that we can embrace it and the transformation it brings.

397-4-Shadow and Image

“Do you know the difference between and image and a shadow?

In today’s podcast and post, we continue our series entitled; “A Course in Darkness” with an examination of the metaphors of an image and a shadow. Throughout human history, we have tried a million different things to free ourselves from our dark side, or our shadow yet nothing has ever worked.

Join me now as I explain why moralism, psychology, religion, and denial have no power over our shadow, and how we can be restored to an image.

396-3-The Purpose of Darkness

“What is the purpose of our human darkness and all the suffering that comes from it?

In today’s podcast and post, I continue in our series called “A Course in Darkness” where I will explore the purpose of our darkness. I’ll prove how a person who rejects God because of all the meaningless suffering in the world, is actually complicit to that suffering.

Join me now as we discover the purpose of darkness and how it reveals not only our state of weakness, but also our role in restoring the world with the light of God.

395-2-The Darkness of God

“Why has no religion nor spiritual pursuit in the history of humanity ever successfully eradicated humanity from our dark side?”

Think about it. How successful has your own spiritual process been? In today’s podcast and post we continue our series entitled “A Course in Darkness” with an examination of God’s darkness.

Join me now as we see beyond our flimsy theologies, our tribal notions, and failed prayers, to gain a transformative perspective of the Darkness of God.

394- A Course in Darkness: Part 1

“How well do you think you perceive or understand ultimate reality?”

In today’s podcast and post we begin a new series entitled “A Course in Darkness.” Most of us would appraise ourselves as being fairly perceptive or as having good understanding, but how can we know for sure? 

Join me now as I open up a passage which offers a simple test of whether we live in the light or are deluding ourselves in darkness.
