David, I don't think the "dark night" is something anyone would intentionally pursue. We are to pursue joy and illumination and satisfaction in God, as well as a sense of his presence. The "dark night" is what God in his mysterious and providential ways occasionally brings into our lives for the reasons Packer states. Does that help?

Sam- isn't the "dark night" referencing something that we intentionally pursue as a practice of a spiritual discipline. An exercise of emptying of sorts..is that correct?
