A Prayer to Dive into True Rest By Christopher Eyte
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” - Matthew 11: 28 - 30
I stood at the top of the diving platform, jutting out from the side of the small ship, and looked out across the wide tranquil expanse of the Mediterranean Sea. Then I studied the frothing blue abyss below and deliberately inhaled a sharp intake of air. My feet pushed out and launched my body upwards, creating an awkward arch in the azure sky before the weight of gravity pulled me down to the waters, and I fell through the mellow waves, dropping like a heavy stone as I disappeared into the depths. My breath was knocked out as I plummeted into the deep. A cold rush streamed across, and I sensed a freezing darkness. I was floating alone, far below the surface of the waves.
