Zitate zum Thema Dunkelheit / Darkness

Zitate allgemein

Gott schied das Licht von der Finsternis
und er nannte das Licht Tag und die Finsternis Nacht.
Genesis 1, 4-5 (AT)


Prüft, was dem Herrn wohlgefällig ist, und habt nicht Gemeinschaft mit den unfruchtbaren Werken der Finster-
nis; deckt sie vielmehr auf. Denn man muss sich schämen, von dem, was sie heimlich tun, auch nur zu reden.
Alles, was aufgedeckt ist, wird vom Licht erleuchtet.
Brief an die Epheser, Kapitel 5, Vers 11-13 (NT) Lutherbibel


Denn wir haben nicht mit Fleisch und Blut zu kämpfen, sondern mit Fürsten und Gewaltigen, nämlich mit den
Herren der Welt, die in der Finsternis dieser Welt herrschen, mit den bösen Geistern unter dem Himmel.
Brief an die Epheser, Kapitel 6, Vers 12 (NT)


  • Dunkelheit ist ein Mangel an Licht, so wie die Sünde ein Mangel an Liebe ist. Sie hat keine speziellen, ihr eigenen Qualitäten. Sie ist ein Beispiel für den Glauben an »Mangel«, aus dem nur Irrtum hervorgehen kann.
    Ein Kurs in Wundern, Übungsbuch, S. 11, T.1.IV.3, 1994

  • Im Nebel
    Seltsam, im Nebel zu wandern!
    Einsam ist jeder Busch und Stein,
    Kein Baum sieht den andern,
    Jeder ist allein.
    Voll von Freunden war mir die Welt,
    Als noch mein Leben licht war;
    Nun, da der Nebel fällt,
    Ist keiner mehr sichtbar.
    Wahrlich, keiner ist weise,
    Der nicht das Dunkel kennt,
    Das unentrinnbar und leise
    Von allen ihn trennt.
    Seltsam, Im Nebel zu wandern!
    Leben ist Einsamsein.
    Kein Mensch kennt den andern,
    Jeder ist allein.
    Hermann Hesse (1877-1962) deutsch-schweizerischer Dichter, Schriftsteller, November 1905, Erzählband Diesseits, 1907, Erzählungen. Eine Flussreise im Herbst, S. 57-58, Berlin 1954

General quotes

The light shines on in the dark and the darkness understands it not. John 1, 5 (NT)


Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. Ephesians 5, 11 (NT)


Personal avowals

  • When I am in that darkness, I do not remember anything about anything human, or the God-man, or anything which has a form. Nevertheless, I see all and I see nothing. As what I have spoken of withdraws and stays with me, I see the God-man. Angela of Foligno (1248-1309) Italian Franciscan tertiary, mystic, writer, complete works The Memorial and Instructions, S. 205, Paulist Press, 1993


  • I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid
    of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multi-
    plies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction. [...] The chain re-
    action of evil – hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars – must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of anni-
    hilation. Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968) US American Baptist minister, activist, leader of the African American civil rights movement, collection of sermons Strength To Love, 1963


  • The feeling of Jewishness remains in me something dark, abysmal, and above all, unstable. Both powerful and labile. Nothing is as important to me as my Jewishness which, however, in many respects, has so little importance in my life. Jacques Derrida (1930-2004) Algerian French postmodern philosopher, founder of deconstructionism, developer of post-structura-
    , atheist, cited in: Hervé Ryssen, Les Espérances planétariennes, S. 183, Éditions Baskerville, 2005



Call for dehumanization followed by genocide

  • Palestinians are not human beings, they don't deserve to live and they are nothing but animals. Eli Ben-Dahan (*1954) Maroccan-Israeli rabbi, politician, member of the Knesset for the Jewish Home, deputy minister of religious affairs, Israeli hatred, presented by the English-language Pakistani newspaper Daily Times (DT), 23. July 2014




  • We should not try to 'get rid' of a neurosis, but rather to experience what it means, what it has to teach, what its pur-
    pose is. We should even learn to be thankful for it, otherwise we pass it by and miss the opportunity of getting to know ourselves as we really are. A neurosis is truly removed only when it has removed the false attitude of the ego. We do not cure it – it cures us. A man is ill, but the illness is nature's attempt to heal him. From the illness itself we can learn so much for our recovery, and what the neurotic flings away as absolutely worthless contains the true
    gold we should never have found elsewhere. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalyst, founder of
    a new school of depth psychology, author, Gerhard Adler, translator,‎ R. F. C. Hull, translator, Civilization in Transition – Collected Works of C.G. Jung, Volume 10, 1928, S. 170, Princeton University Press, New Jersey, 2nd edition 1. August 1970



  • All growth is a leap in the dark, a spontaneous unpremeditated act without benefit of experience.
    Henry Miller (1891-1980) US American painter, writer, The Wisdom of the Heart, S. 80, 1941, New Directions Publishing Corporation, 20. December 2016



  • The great problem of our time is that we don’t understand what is happening to the world. We are confronted with
    the darkness of our soul, the unconscious. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalyst, founder of a
    new school of depth psychology, author, Letters, Vol. 2. 1951-1961, S. 590, Princeton University Press, 1. April 1976



  • The devil is a preliminary stage of individuation, in the negative it has the same goal as the divine quaternity, name-
    ly, wholeness.
    Although it is still darkness, it already carries the germ of light within itself. Its activities are still dangerous and dead-
    ly, but at the same time it is like the darkness of earth in which the seed germinates.
    Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalyst, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, Maria Meyer-
    Grass, editor, Lorenz Jung, editor, Ernst Falzeder and Tony Woolfson, translators, Children's Dreams. Notes from the Seminar Given in 1936-1940, S. 372, Princeton University Press, paperback 2010


  • Suffering is archetypal and collective, it can be taken as a sign that [we are] no longer suffering from [ourselves], but rather from the spirit of the age. [We suffer from an] [...] impersonal cause, from [our] collective unconscious which
    [we have] in common with all [humanity]. [words in brackets have been changed from singular, masculine to gender neutral]. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalyst, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author,
    cited in: Paul Levy (*1956) US American psycho-activating healer, artist, author, The Wounded Healer, part 1, 2007


Good-Evil dichotomy

  • Therefore the ancients said that after Adam had eaten the apple, the tree of paradise withered. Your life needs the dark. But if you know that it is evil, you can no longer accept it and you suffer anguish and you do not know why. Nor can you accept it as evil, else your good will reject you. Nor can you deny it since you know good and evil. Because
    of this the knowledge of good and evil was an insurmountable curse.
    But if you return to primal chaos and if you feel and recognize that which hangs stretched between the two unbear-
    able poles of fire, you will notice that you can no longer separate good and evil conclusively, neither through feeling
    nor through knowledge, but that you can discern the direction of growth only from below to above. You thus forget
    the distinction between good and evil, and you no longer know it as long as your tree grows from below to above.
    But as soon as growth stops, what was united in growth falls apart and once more you recognize good and evil.
    Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalyst, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, Sonu Shamdasani, Indian historian, editor, The Red Book [Liber Novus], 205-page illustrated manuscript, Kindle Location 6956,

  • The ancient Romans built their greatest masterpieces of architecture, for wild beasts to fight in. Letter by Voltaire [François-Marie Arouet] (1694-1778) French philosopher of the Age of Enlightenment, social critic, proponent of the French Revolution, advocate of civil liberties, freedom of religion, free trade, deist, writer, addressed to an unnamed "un premier commis", 20.

  • In the Christian context, we do not mean by a "mystery" merely that which is baffling and mysterious, an enigma or insoluble problem. A mystery is, on the contrary, something that is revealed for our understanding, but which we never understand exhaustively because it leads into the depth or darkness of God. The eyes are closed – but they are also opened. Kallistos Ware (*1934) English metropolitan bishop within the Eastern Orthodox Church under the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople, author, The Orthodox Way, St. Vladimir's Seminary Press, United States, 1979, revised edition 1. September 1995

Hate, Empathy, and the Plight of Humanity, S. 63, Dorrance Publishing, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, 2013


  • Nonviolence means avoiding not only external physical vio-
    lence but also internal violence of spirit. You not only refuse to shoot a man, but you refuse to hate him. Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968) US American Baptist minister, activist, leader of the African American civil rights movement, cited in: Nonviolence, presented by U.N. International Day of Peace, 21. September


  • These places of possibility within ourselves are dark because they are ancient and hidden; they have survived and grown strong through darkness. Within these deep places, each one of us holds an incredible reserve of creati-
    and power, of unexamined and unrecorded emotion and feeling. The woman's place of power within each of us is neither white nor surface; it is dark, it is ancient, and it is deep. Audre Lorde (1934-1992) Caribbean-American activist, poet, writer, Sister Outsider. Essays and Speeches, S. 36, Crossing Press, Trumansburg, New York, 1984, reprint edition 1. August 2007




The daemonic turned demonic

  • [The daemonic is] any natural function which has the power to take over the whole person [or whole nation] […] the daemonic can either be creative or destructive [i.e., demonic], but it is normally both […]. Violence is the daemonic gone awry […] ages [such as ours] tend to be times when the daemonic is expressed in its most destructive form. The daimonic is obviously not an entity but refers to a fundamental, archetypal function of human experience – an existential reality. Rollo May may-rollo (1909-1994) US American existential psychologist, author, Love and Will, S. 123-124, W. W. Norton & Company, 1969; cited also in: Paul Levy (*1956) US American psycho-activating healer, artist, author, Dispelling Wetiko. Breaking the Curse of Evil, North Atlantic Books, 15. January 2013



Jacob wrestling God/angel/daemon

  • Jacob was wrestling with the angel in the first place because he would have been killed otherwise. The more powerful archetypal forces that wound us and become activated in us through our wounding literally challenge us to the core of our being to connect with, become intimately acquainted with, and step into more empowered aspects of ourselves, or else. Talking about his own personal experience of living out this deeper, archetypal pattern, Jung said
    "I would wrestle with the dark angel until he dislocated my hip. For he is also the light and the blue sky which
    he withholds from me."
The dark angel who wounds us is at the same time the Luciferian agent who is the bringer of the light. There is a se-
cret tie between the powers that wound us by seemingly obstructing our true nature and the very true nature that they appear to be obstructing.
Blog article by Paul Levy (*1956) US American psycho-activating healer, artist, author, The wounded healer, part 1, 2007


  • In the myth, the angel then changes Jacob's name to "Israel," "he who has wrestled with God," which symbolizes that Ja-
    cob's identity has been changed in the process of his encoun-
    ter with the numinosum. Our wounding is a "numinous" event,
    in that its source is transpersonal and archetypal, which is to
    say that our wound is the very way by which the divine is ma-
    king contact with us. The origin of both our wounding AND the
    healing that precipitates out of our wound comes from beyond
    ourselves, as it is beyond our own personal contrivance. Our wounding activates a deeper, transpersonal process of potential healing and illumination that we could not have initiated by ourselves.
    Blog article by Paul Levy (*1956) US American psycho-activating healer, artist, author, The wounded healer, part 1, 2007


  • The ability to hold Light is directly proportional to the courage to see darkness. Choosing to see just one creates distortions and illusions. It amazes me that something so simple and common sense can be so difficult to even discuss with 'spiritual' people who insist on remaining 'positive'. Actually, this avoidance is based on unacknowledged fear that their inner light might be somewhat 'dispersed' by seeing darkness and therefore not giving the light much credit at all. I think there's also fear that they might somehow become 'tainted' or the darkness might 'manifest' in some form in their lives. But the opposite is true; it is the fear, especially unacknowledged, that has much more chance to manifest than darkness exposed to daylight and investigation. Just like we must be fearless about our own inner shadow, we must also be fearless about seeing this huge shadow of humanity. Or we will have the power to transform pre-
    cisely nothing, within or without. Anis Springate, US American blogger, cited in: article Don't be Afraid of the Dark, presented
    by the publication DMT Times, 14. March 2019


  • It's not accidental that our gravest social ills, ranging from drugs and alcoholism to crime and child abuse, arise from diseases of the spirit, damaged self-esteem, and lack of mutual respect. There is no way we can resolve these pro-
    blems without making the leap into acknowledging our spiritual illnesses and dealing first with them.
    Tom Bender, US American architect, visionary thinker of the green architecture and sustainability movements, strategic planner,
    feng-shui practitioner, editor, writer, The Heart of Place, 168 pages, December 1993



Battle between service to self ⇔ service to others

  • And as we have learned from Jesus, Gurdjieff and the Gnostic Sufis, Castaneda, and the Cassiopaeans, the rules of this World in which we live were set up and are controlled by this STS [Service-to-Self] hierarchy and have been for a very long time. Each and every time the revelation of this Control System is attempted, the Matrix goes into overdrive to destroy it. And it is clear that this is the present situation […]. It is in "seeing the unseen" that we become aware of higher le-
    vels of being; it is in ordinary human interactions that we experience the "battles" between the forces of STS and STO
    And it is most definitely this factor that the Matrix Control System vigorously attempts to conceal! […] In other words,
    we are not just talking about a "petty dispute," we are talking about a battle of forces at other levels, manifesting –
    as ALWAYS – in human dynamics.
    Laura Knight-Jadczyk (*1952) US American alternative multidisciplinary researcher, medium, editor, author, Petty Tyrants & Facing the Unknown, The Wave Volume 5, Red Pill Press, paperback issue 1. September 2011

  • I am a forest and a night of dark trees:
    but he who is not afraid of my darkness,
    will find banks full of roses under my cypresses.
    Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (1844-1900) German classical scholar, philologist, critic of culture, philologist, philosopher of nihilism, writer, Thus Spoke Zarathustra [Also sprach Zarathustra], Ernst Schmeitzner, Chemnitz, 1883-1891, Viking Press, 1954


  • The most vicious terrorists [...] are the influential leaders who fuel hatred among the desperate masses, inspiring their foot soldiers to commit acts of violence. It takes only one powerful dark soul to wreak havoc in the world by inspiring spiritual intolerance, nationalism, or loathing in the minds of the vulnerable. Dan Brown (*1964) US American bestselling author of thriller fiction, mystery thriller Origen, S. 456, Doubleday, 27. September 2017



  • You, Darkness
    You, darkness, of whom I am born –
    I love you more than the flame
    that limits the world
    to the circle it illumines
    and excludes all the rest.
    But the darkness embraces everything:
    shapes and shadows, creatures and me,
    people, nations – just as they are.
    It lets me imagine
    a great presence stirring beside me.
    I believe in the night.
    Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926) Bohemian-Austrian poet, novelist, translated by Anita Barrows and Joanna Macy,
    cited in: Anita Barrows, Rilke's Book of Hours. Love Poems to God, Riverhead Books, 1. November 2005

Quotes by David R. Hawkins

⚠ Caveat See Power vs. Truth, January 2013


Unconscious psychic imprint: Weighing the sinner's heart on the scales

  • In Egyptian mythology, the soul goes to Hades [Duat], where the Lord of the Underworld (Osiris) sits in judgment and weighs the sinner's heart on the scales, whose destiny then hangs in the balance. To understand this depiction (which operates quite mightily in the human psyche) we first note that it is referring to the 'underworld'. This is the judge in the unconscious mind that is self-judging and hands out sentences of guilt, suffering, and self-hatred. This myth is an accurate depiction of the dark side of the unconscious.
    Dr. David R. Hawkins, I. Reality and Subjectivity, S. 331, 2003



Darkness is the absence of goodness.

  • Darkness ist not the opposite of goodness, it's the absence of goodness.
    Untitled audio interview with Dr. David R. Hawkins, presented by the suspended US American web radio station "Beyond the Ordinary", hosts Nancy Lorenz and Elena Young, 60 minutes duration, aired 13. July 2004
