"I will give you the treasures of darkness,
and hidden riches of secret places"
It is a sacred trust to be subjected to the dark night of the soul.
True treasure is not brandished in broad daylight,
not before it is unearthed from punishing pressure,
darkness that feels like death,
black as night,
the treasure hunter subjected
to the same surroundings
as the treasure itself,
deep calling to deep
There is a communion with Christ which only happens
when we share in His sufferings,
when we are crucified with him,
when we undergo the extreme duress
despised by those content with cubic zirconias...
Therein true riches are found
Therein Gift is formed
From this burial we are unearthed
and we become the Reveal
of the One True God,
"I, the Lord, form the light and create darkness"
