– DN is basically a flooding of repressed material into consciousness, so that it can be seen, accepted, understood, seen as your potential, as you, and then released.
– So if life is constantly driving you to feel things which you repressed or don’t want to feel, then all the energy gets consumed in resistance so that you do not feel the repressed material.
– You end up being in a lifeless, stoic state and struggle to hold on to it, to prevent yourself from being consumed with all the repressed/unpleasant stuff.
– So this explains the dark night experience. Its when the contents of consciousness become the repressed material and this can happen to anybody trying to transform.
– The way out is to give out all your love for all the material arising, so that those energetic traps can be released.
