this is by no way arguing just offering how i view your post.
You're other thread needs to be brought up to elaborate. Your "Darkness" is just what i see as spirituality. a very amplified case i might add.
but like i explained in that thread.
to better appreciate spirituality the very lack of is what creates the satisfaction of finally getting it.
like i said about the drinking the bland and tasteless water. once travelling through the desert and being that dehydrated when given the glass of water you get to taste and experience it in a whole new way. a way that wouldn't be possible without the lack of.
while in the desert you were thinking of the lack of water.
when you get out you will think of how amazing it is. and tell all these people how amazing the water is and they will all look at you like your a loon. either way you'll also understand their position that much better because you were once in their shoes drinking it like it was bland and tasteless.
I could also offer up another analogy of how i view what your saying here.
“... the devil doesn't come dressed in a red cape and pointy horns. He comes as everything you've ever wished for ...”
So if were viewing it like this and taking this to be truth for speculations sake. That would make all the dark things like Depression anger resentment discontent all forms of god.
having those shiny things and chasing them teaches most bad traits and then when they get those things they normally don't have true happiness.
It is going through the pain and strife and all the dark things that truly lead to inner peace.
Just some ideas that popped in my mind after reading your post. hope it offers some perspective on how i view spirituality or "lack of"
