Pssst… I’m over here.
Look again! Yes… Right in front of you!
Here I am.
I realize it’s quite dark out right now. The clouds are heavy and gloomy, and ferocious rains take no issue making their presence known. It’s rough out there my friend. Even still, I hear there is a beautiful place unlike anything we’ve seen further up the path ahead. I’m not exactly sure how long the journey is, but I hear it is well worth the pursuit. In fact, they say that in this place there is no fear or pain, no guilt or pride… Not even death can exist there.
Have you heard of it?
I’ve also been told that along this path are many torches. Some are big and bright like the sun, others like tiny wax candles. These would serve well to bring warmth, vision and comfort as we traverse this “narrow and ancient path”. That’s right, this road has been here for a very long time and yet many ignore it. There is a wide gate nearby that seems to be relatively popular, but I’ve been where it leads and trust me when I tell you, nothing lasts over there. I fought with my life to leave that wretched God-forsaken illusion of happiness…
I can not and will not lie to you, there will be hard times on our journey. All the more reason that we should go together don’t you think? But oh! The bliss and glory we shall experience when we arrive! There is none comparable!
We will need to be disciplined, responsible and wise with our time, energy and resources. I’ve also heard stories of a guide that helps weary travelers along the way. Only to those who allow it anyways. I suppose many take issue with this divine Advisor. From what I hear, we’ll want to embrace this helper as our best friend.
I suppose we could go on for days on end analyzing the potentials of our odyssey, but that would take away from the expedition itself. You see, even amidst our hardships our greatest victories await! This will be our most revolutionary adventure yet!
But let’s not get too ahead of ourselves shall we? Perhaps I should simply begin things will a simple question…
Care to take a walk?
