Visualize yourself in a lovely forest. You're walking through the forest and its a lovely crisp autumn day. The brown and red leaves and broken twigs crackle underfoot and birds are singing in the tall majestic trees. Here and there you see a rabbit or a squirrel scuttling across a clearing, and there is a gurgling stream nearby......
It's a lovely autumn day. The type of day just after bonfire night when a smell of smoke still lingers in the air. Pine cones are scattered on the ground and grasshoppers jump across the sparse clusters of bluebells.
You walk deeper into the forest where's it's not as warm, but still quite comfortable. Carefully stepping around broken stumps of trees and over branches.
Suddenly you come upon a massive hole. A huge hole in the ground with many steps leading down. Lights surrounding the inside of the hole invite you to step down. You're cautious, but you're also curious. What's down there? Will you see?
Perhaps you'd rather stay above the ground, but for a moment just imagine now with me, that you (and I) have decided to venture down the steps to see what's there. And you know you're safe because this hole is just an imaginary hole, not real, not even there, just a figment of your imagination.
So lets be adventurous and step down, holding carefully onto the hand rail nearest to where we descend. Just twenty steps it seems. Step down now, as I count. 20, 19, 18, 17, 16, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1.
Quite far down inside the hole now. It didn't seem too bad, did it? Walk across the floor now and step back to look up from where you came. Notice the formations of the earth, the different coloured stone, and still deeper are crystals, jade and amethyst, and microscopic life. The smell of earth fills your awareness, damp, sweet earth. Magic earth.
More steps now lead even further down. Will you venture further? Let's go deeper. Another twenty steps. Step further down now, as I count. 20, 19, 18, 17, 16, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1.
You're now standing in the depths of the earth and ahead of you is a beautiful blue cave. The bluest blue you ever saw. Step inside. Feel the comfort and safety of the cave. A stream runs through, and slippery rocks which are plenty large enough to tread on. Even a support to hold on as you go along. So walk into the comfort and safety of the beautiful blue cave. Notice your own clothes how they change to blue. But even through the blue you see other colours, brilliant green emeralds and darker jade, amethyst and crystal formations in the rocks, but the main colour here is blue.
As you walk deeper into the cave you see more steps leading down. This time there is no light. It's black. Coal black. Jet black. As you walk down even more steps, carefully holding onto the side, your eyes begin to become accustomed to the dark. You feel your way down with your feet until you know you are at the bottom. At first you realise that you can't see a thing. You can't even see yourself, but you know that you're there. And suddenly you realise that you don't need to see yourself on the outside, to know who you are on the inside. You are you.
And you realise that you could look like anyone on the outside, but you would still be you on the inside. And as your eyes begin to focus you see the shape of a person before you. You realise this is a reflection of yourself, not the self you are now, but the self that you were, perhaps hundreds - maybe thousands of years ago. And you were still the same person on the inside - but your persona was different. You made mistakes, just like everyone does. Perhaps you learned from your mistakes? If so, what did you learn?
