Have you ever realised?
When you enter a completely dark room from a well lit room, you can't see anything; literally nothing. It's like a never-ending alley of darkness with no clue of light. You may bang your legs, head, hands or your torso with any obstacle while trying to find a way out of that darkness.
But, gradually, when you relax, you are able to see something, may be a shadow, may be nothing you can define; but there's something which isn't much dark or lost. Then you can find your way out, into the light.
How about applying this phenomenon in your life? Philosophically? May be there's a way in which you can find yourself out of darkness into the light; may be you aren't all lost!
