There is a light at the end of the tunnel. Unfortunately, the tunnel is long and bendy and you have no idea that the light is there. It’s there though. What’s even better than that, is that you can see in the dark. You never went into the tunnel to find the light, you went into the tunnel to check out the tunnel. Then you got lost in the tunnel and suddenly you were eager to see the light again. Of course the light is there. It’s always been there and always will be there. You don’t have to see it to know it’s there, but if you start to imagine that it is not there, then you may freak out and think of nothing but the light.
When the light is out of sight, you need to let your eyes adjust to the dark. The dark is where you need to be, because that is where you are. You need to walk slowly. Take in the sounds and scents. What you find in the dark will carry you to the light. It will take another moment for your eyes to adjust then too.
If it’s light it’s light. If it’s dark, it’s dark. You are alive and aware, no matter what the external conditions are. You are here. Breathe, smell, walk slowly and let your eyes adjust. There is plenty of light.
