I see the people, elbow to elbow in a circle, their backs are to the inside, their fronts facing out. Their countenance is like the sun.
As they open their arms exposing their front center to the light, the cocoon of darkness which had enveloped them opens, and as they spread their arms wide the darkness is contained behind them in the residue of the collective cocoon.
The darkness is encased by this cocoon, and surrounding this dark ball is the golden, fiery light of the liberated souls.
This dark ball burns in this fiery light, enslaved in its own making … the cocoon of darkness … now surrounded by the flames of liberation.
Maybe this is what the prophets spoke of when describing the earth on fire.
