Wake up, Buffy

"It's not going to be easy, Buffy. You have to take it one step at a time. You have to start ridding your mind of those things that support your hallucination. You understand? There are things in that world you cling to. For your delusion they're safe holds, but for
your mind, they're traps."
-- Buffy the Vampire Slayer, when Buffy finds out her world is a fantasy, and doctors in the real world are trying to help her wake up.

A crack

There is a crack, a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in.

Buffy in heaven

I was happy. Wherever I was, I was happy. At peace. I knew that everyone I cared about was all right. I knew it. Time didn't mean anything... nothing had form, but I was still me, you know? And I was warm, and I was loved... and I was finished. Complete.
I don't understand about theology or dimensions, or... any of it, really, but I think I was in heaven.

Depth of Winter

In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.
-- Albert Camus

I think he was talking about a "dark night of the soul" phenomenon, which I'm quite interested in. It seems to be a spontaneous journey to the Light, via a years-long passage through Darkness in the form of depression, pain, or anxiety.
