Fuel the Fire

Today’s tale is one of passion and anger. A fire that burns in the heart of every man, woman and child. The spark that lives within each and every one of us, simultaneously a constructive and destructive force, two sides of the same coin. The end result, dependent on our frame of mind, our perception … More Fuel the Fire

Shadows of Fear

What is this thing that lay at the heart of our fears? We may attempt to project it onto any number of people, places or things, but does it not begin and end within ourselves? If we could put a face to this mysterious phantom, would this answer the question of fear? Searching deep within, … More Shadows of Fear

Fickle Fate

Fate is a fickle little beast. In some ways it seems to drive all that is, yet it is not all that is. Each of us is responsible for the results in our lives.

The Fabric

I often wonder why it is that I’m here, and whether the life of one man really makes a difference. Is it really all just about this day to day existence? Grow up, get educated, get a job so you can afford to have a family and children, so you can raise them to grow … More The Fabric

Mystical Suffering

The days are filled with mixed emotion, vacillating to and fro, from a balanced security to an encompassing cloud of self-pity. Darkness seeping into the heart, constricting it tightly with its cold black claws.

Mystical Recovery

“To us, the Realm of Spirit is broad, roomy, all inclusive; never exclusive or forbidding to those who earnestly seek. It is open, we believe, to all men.” Having been opened up to the realm of the spirit, I began researching old text trying to find an understanding of what was happening. The first thing … More Mystical Recovery
