As I work at understanding Depth as a way of thinking about God, I think of an image that has colored my prayer for 60 years. It's from Bede Griffiths' The Golden Thread.
I am standing beside a deep, dark pit that seems to have no bottom. I am not satisfied with the area around me. From the pit I hear a voice calling, "Jump, my son, I'll catch you." The dark pit is frightening, but my surroundings are not fulfilling. I jump and find myself caught up in the loving arms of God.
