Words of Men
You are right...not so religious. As far as I am concerned religion is a man made concept based on a man-made idea constructed to give hope to the hopeless, help to the helpless and fear to the fearless. However, while it may provide some with comfort in these instances, it has often been used as a purpose for some of the world's greatest atrocities. I believe there are many things beyond us as human beings, but I would not worship any of them and the fact that all religious texts were written by men doesn't give me any reason to believe them more than any other. They have helped many, but many have been killed in their name as well. I believe in negative and positive life force energy and that the idea behind these forces is to be more positive than negative with hopes of balancing the worlds evil with good. Men are corrupt and I have no faith in them. I am the son of Mother Nature and Father Time. Death is my religion, it follows me everywhere I go and makes sure I live each day to the fullest, for I know not which will be my last. Remember, you are in control of your own destiny, no one can take that away from you and you must never surrender!
Face Your Demons
At times we all must face our demons and we must do so alone. When it is all said and done, on this mere leg of a potentially eternal journey, we are all alone within our own spirit lies the key to our existence. We enter this world in this manner and so too will we leave it without ties whether we continue on or if our journey ends with this life. We are not all on the same leg, nor the same path, yet the quest for glory is ever-present within and all around us. For every day we live and every breath we take our souls hold the key to our reality and its link to the past and present. This is nothing new that I speak of, it is what you already know to be true, you have probably felt it by now and if not you undoubtedly soon will. Our energy collides and for some it remains, for others it presses onward, upward or downward. This is the true test of one's soul. Can you face your demons with nothing and no one near and dear to your heart beside you? Or, will you kneel in the face of doom and relinquish it as you are overcome by the fear and dread of the uncertain?
Choose Your Path
As humans we often find ourselves being pushed and pulled in multiple directions by opposing forces, perhaps not so clear as black and white, right and wrong. It is within in these gray lines where we reside the majority of the time and must all decide for ourselves the path we shall take. We may embark and quickly wish to go back and retrace our steps, rethink our decision. It is too late though to undo what has since passed and we must push on toward the end to be determined by our next action and those to come without dwelling on the past. Though remaining cognoscente of the missteps along the way is imperative, our path must remain true, steady in the midst of turmoil and chaos. It is this drive only that can break the chain holding together the positive and negative energy, steering our course in the direction of the conquest we seek. The sought after shall only escape our grasp should we choose to set our sights elsewhere deemed more appropriate at hand. Therefore, we must focus, however aware of that which is at the right and left, seeking the knowledge beyond the next step so as not to waver on this perilous quest through time.
Victory is Yours, Take it!
When we emerge victorious, from the shadows into the light, we must still realize there are always those demons still lurking below. They seek to drag us down into their dungeon of despair. Your success means their failure and they look to rise above on the content of your character as it begins to diminish. We must remain true in these times and remember how it is all of this came to be. The truth is, there is no end, no finality and no fatality when our own reality begins and ends within our own skin. Our flesh and bones possess the physical structure, which is but mere devise housing the spirit within and it is this that must be protected at all costs. You will see it when look down from the heavens as it appears over your shoulder when begin to look back. Its presence looms, but can only overcome you if you are blinded by it and unaware that it surrounds you. Keep your head and remain agile as you forge on. They say it is always darkest before the light, but this is only the case should you find your way to the light through the darkest. So, you must not falter and allow it to seep into your mind, body and soul, for this will be the end. You have the power in your hands and your mind can control them as your soul guides you through the dense fog of the destitute. Let the epic quest for the glory of your life begin...
