Life must be a mix of differing vibrations, for a single and steady vibration offers no change, no differences. Imagine a rainbow that is just a single color; imagine the sky and everything as that same color, whether it be white, black, red, anything. This mighty rainbow disappears as does everything within the eye’s view, there being no differences in the color and reflected colors of light. And as the eye is one of the five physical senses, the others senses, too, are revealed through…Continue

The book is a hauntingly beautiful story of faith, family, and redemption,…Continue

Love is, instead, a campfire. It provides ample warmth and comfort to those who sit around it. And although its flames may at times wane, a…
