A few weeks ago, in the twilight zone between waking and sleeping, I had this picture that’s been circulating in my mind since.
In this story I had been in a dark, pitch black pit for some time, stuck in the depths of despair. Suddenly I began to see the beginnings of an opening above me, and as the opening got wider I could see the brilliant light of the sun and the blue sky above. As the door of the pit widened still, what emerged was many hands reaching down to help me up and up into the light, and faces with radiant smiles and shouts of encouragement. When I reached up and was pulled out, I started joining others to reach down and help those who were still in the pit.
