Escaping the Darkness

If you are ever to escape the darkness, however, you must start somewhere. Yes, this may seem awkward and strange at first; nonetheless, begin the journey by asking yourself, “Where am I?”

Follow the flow, by allowing the answer to one question to logically lead to the next. Unavoidably you will be pressed to find existential meaning in your own life. Continue the search, by reaching beyond what the conscious mind perceives, uncovering layers of unknown meaning behind life’s seemingly ordinariness – until encountering the ultimate life-giving force itself – which is G-d.

However, as long as a person is only focused on the desires of one’s heart and drawn after the desires of one’s passions, then all meaning and satisfaction in life will continue to elude the person; one will become lost to despair.
