Does anyone know of a text which interprets the Book of Revelation as symbology intended to depict an individual's inner world during his/her passage through the "dark night of the soul," only to emerge on the other end as an enlightened being?
Wonderful, symbols! Welcome to Interfaith!Dear taijasi -- a brief perusal of Lesson 72 tells me it is right on the mark! Thank you so much! I've always been drawn to theosophy...
I tend to steer clear of The Revelation .... Too darn confusing for my simple mind. That being said, if you find a text that shows what you are seeking, I'd LOVE to take a look see.
The other issue with the Book of revelation is that it can become a self fulfilling prophecy. All that is needed is a few who believe to start the ball rolling, and the rest complacently go along for the ride, until it is too late to get off.The thing with the book of revelation is, it is nothing but a ton of symbolism... So anyone can make it say whatever they want, it has no limits to a certain mindset.
