Overview

There comes to all souls, at least once in life, a severe test. It is known as the Dark Night of the Soul. It is when we are beleaguered by darkness: spiritual and mental and where no hope seems to be near and everything we try to do is thwarted. It is where the soul is forced to persist and enter into the glorious Golden Dawn of Illumination and kinship with God, or relax into the dull slumber of a mediocre physical existence. You cannot avoid it. If this test hasn't already come in your life-it will. How you deal with it is as important as life itself. This book, written by a high initiate, St. John, will be your counsel and guide.

The Spanish to English translation needs further translation into modern English. It includes sentences that take a paragraph to finish, as well as quotes in Latin that she fails to translate into English. This book is not readable by an average reader.

I have been seeing references to and quotes from the writings of St. John of the Cross for years, especially in writings in Yoga, Mindfulness Meditation, and poetry. Finally, curiosity got the best of me and I purchased this fascinating book. St. John of the Cross was an amazing character. It fascinates me to peek inside the mind of someone so different from myself. Also his statements about the development of a more spiritual mind are right on. People with his singleminded religious zeal have made huge impacts on the way we live. Think Plymouth Rock, the Crusades, the Salem witch hunts, the generosity of The Salvation Army, the fearlessness of the Jihadists, etc.
