April 21, 2012

Where am I? This suffocating darkness, what is this? All I see is darkness… all I feel is pain… Where am I? Who am I? As I gained consciousness of my spiritual state, I found a darkness deeper than any darkness I could imagine. There was no light at all. No light of life. No […]

I felt that I was making real strides in my life by writing and questioning and going deeper. I had begun to penetrate the facade. I was quite proud of myself… Little did I know what was in store. On April 1, April Fool’s Day (seems quite significant for some elusive reason), I typed out […]
