Deep thoughts

If a road that is traveled ends up in a dead end, a dark place, there is a ladder there with which to climb out.
(see Ladder to Heaven, St. Catherine's Monastery, Sinai, icon)
That establishes you in life again, but you have to grasp something that has meaning to you in a physical earthly sense and work with it, turning your back, time and time again on the dead end roads that try to destroy you.

If I think that something that I am doing has real value, it will have to be worked at, even to blood letting, to make it succeed and to give it life. God wants us to be truly committed to what we give our energy.
