放弃小我
Surrendering the Ego

Dark Night Of The Soul

灵魂的暗夜

让我们充分认识到小我身份的局限

The dark night of the soul invites us to fully recognize the confines of our ego's identity.


当一个词汇被滥用了,就很可能会被用错,久而久之,它就失去其原有的意义。例如,我们经常将一段抑郁情绪或迷茫时期称为灵魂的暗夜,但是这些事情都不是。灵魂的暗夜是一种非常特殊的经历,它发生在人们的灵魂之旅中。有些人从来没有经历过灵魂的暗夜,但是对于另一些人而言,他们必须要经受这些,作为进入高层次的觉醒前必然经历所需要突破的一部分。
Whenever a word is overused, it is most likely being misused, and over time, it begins to lose its meaningfulness. For example, we often refer to a fleeting feeling of depression or a period of confusion, as a dark night of the soul, but neither of these things qualifies as such. A dark night of the soul is a very specific experience that some people encounter on their spiritual journeys. There are people who never encounter a dark night of the soul, but others must endure this as part of the process of breaking through to the dawn of higher consciousness.

灵魂的暗夜让我们充分认识到小我身份的局限。在这段时期我们可能感觉到自己被囚困进一所监狱,看不到光,也没有出路。我们往往来自于更高层次的觉知领域,并且我们可能为迎接更高层次的觉醒之光花了很多时间和精力。这就是为什么这暗夜让我们觉得如此绝望:我们突然和那些自以为认识到的觉知领域隔绝,并且这份情绪上的痛苦是如此真切。我们甚至开始觉得从前的进步都是幻觉,并将永远在这黑暗中迷失。我们越是挣扎,周遭越是黑暗,直到最后我们投降了,不知道该做什么,想什么,也不知道哪里才是转机。从这里我们对自己失去了控制,小我也开始瓦解变弱,并且光进入的可能性更大了。
The dark night of the soul invites us to fully recognize the confines of our ego's identity. We may feel as if we are trapped in a prison that affords us no access to light or the outside. We are coming from a place of higher knowing, and we may have spent a lot of time and energy reaching toward the light of higher consciousness. This is why the dark night has such a quality of despair: We are suddenly shut off from what we thought we had realized and the emotional pain is very real. We may even begin to feel that it was all an illusion and that we are lost forever in this darkness. The more we struggle, the darker things get, until finally we surrender to our not knowing what to do, how to think, where to turn. It is from this place of losing our sense of ourselves as in control that the ego begins to crack or soften and the possibility of light entering becomes real.

在一生中,我们中的一些人不得不承受这个过程一次,然而有些人却不得不承受许多次。暗夜的显现预示了我们从老旧的身份中解脱。我们最后放弃了相信这个错的小我,因此可以迎接光明的到来,并拥有这束光明。
Some of us will have to endure this process only once in our lives, while others may have to go through it many times. The great revelation of the dark night is the releasing of our old, false identity. We finally give up believing in this false self and thus become capable of owning and embracing the light.
