The capsized boat is what’s left of our old life. We are submerged in our Dark Night of the Soul, facing a life review of unreleased, tramatic, emotional experiences. It can feel alot like this sketch.
The key is reminding ourselves that this is a healing process that will end in balance and peace.
The experience of reliving ugly emotions feels like it’s really happening. The lifesaver is close by, but it is our Dark Night that saves us. The lifesaver reminds us that we have help and we are not alone.
