Journey of Healing

Most people are literally afraid of Nothing. They would much rather adapt to a faulty, dishonest system than give up the security of their perception of reality. They would much rather complacently survive in a rigid hierarchy than thrive in ambiguities of freedom. Freedom demands inner, not outer, authority. It pulls the cultural rug out from underneath you and plunges you into the limbo of endless possibilities, a void that can only be traversed through the most divine interpretation of creativity: the presence of mind, heart and soul to literally conceive something from nothing, feel it bloom inside and finally endure the pain and consequences of releasing it to the world.
