Starting with the idea that everything is interconnected, Michael Meade begins this episode with a commentary on the rescue of the group of boys from the caves in Thailand. He then uses the metaphor of being lost in the darkness and trapped in a labyrinth to consider how we all have fears of the dark and longings to be rescued from the anxieties of life. Somehow, Nasruddin, the wise fool from Sufi tales shows up, and the search begins for an essential key that has been lost in the dark. Not only do we pray for the rescue of the boys trapped in the dark, we also seek the courage to face our own darkness and find our own key to greater understanding.
