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.
