Darkness And Enlightenment.

I wonder if Master Kao-feng Yuan-miao (1238-1259) and Saint John of the Cross (1542-1591) would have how similar were the views of the "dark night of the soul"  The Zen Buddhist and the Catholic Christians have different words, and, perhaps different attitudes, but their perceptions of our basic problem and its solution are almost identical.  I would not see this if i had not read them almost together!
