In my experience, I had to understand my own shadow side.
I explored the abyss of my soul.
I inflicted anguish, suffering, pain and fear upon myself.
I call this the abyss of my soul.
There, in the darkest deepest recesses of my soul, I found the Golden Fleece.
I grabbed it and ran like hell, back to the light and love.
I was then able to really appreciate the simple pleasures and
experience God’s love with true appreciation.
I was careful not to wreak of the stench of enlightenment, by coming off superior in someway.
Everyone has their own personal experience.
Yours will be your own.
