You couldn't even if you tried.
Confusion leads to clarity.
We all use light and dark all the time. This is how this reality is set up.
If you what to know what the dark is, it is pure control of oneself and others.
And we all use control to some degree. It would be impossible to be in this reality without using it.

Honza,

In other traditions…namely Christian, it is the temptation in the desert…..in that case, returning to God is returning to your true Self….

I must admit that I tend to see it this way too. I am praying to Christ to help me regarding this situation. Because I am not in the know about who or what the 'true self' is I tend to shuffle around in the dark.

'The wound is the place where the Light enters you.' ~ Rumi

I believe the True Light only enters in the deepest and darkest place, so even though it feels oppressive, maybe you’re heading in the right direction. You could read about the life of Saint Seraphim of Sarov, he struggled and he prayed, and in the end he found the True Light.
