The Alice Bailey books describe periods where the disciple goes through "the burning grounds", which may be another term for the dark night of the Soul.

This is a time when we are tested, and "These tests are applied when the soul grips the personality and the fire of divine love destroys the loves and desires of the integrated personality."

So it is a time of letting go, a time of apparent loss, a time when we surrender all that we hold most dear. But this is necessary, because we need to lose all that no longer serves us so that we may move ahead on the Path.

This is always a difficult stage, a time of personal crisis, but it is also a time of preparation for something greater.

Peace.
