One Last Sunset

We stood inside the cave in our robes, deep in meditation and prayer. The war raged outside and we didn’t know how long it would be until we were physically ravaged by the spears and swords of our own people. We would not defend ourselves; it was not our way to pick up weapons and fight. We were peacekeepers, masters of the soul, keepers of the light. The world had changed. The rulers did not desire peace, they wanted land. They wanted their people to live in fear of them. In reverence. To treat them as gods. The people just

Then He Remembered

“How long will it take before I fall asleep?” he wondered, his head lying on a cold pillow, stained with his tears. “Will I feel anything? Will it hurt?” He thought about what had brought him here. A cruel, uncaring world full of strangers. One failure after another. No more energy to try again, to keep going, to learn from experience. He was tired of all of it. But mostly he felt alone.

We arrived at the edge of the park. My father let go of

Yesterday I was trying to write a blog entry and nothing was coming to me.  It just wasn’t flowing.  I started and stopped 3 different articles and finally gave up, realizing that forcing it wasn’t going to serve me at all.  So I went to bed and asked my guides to inspire me with something that would be of benefit to my readers.  And I had a dream.  When I woke up I wrote this story. I believe it will resonate with many of you. Enjoy. *** There were 33 of us in the first group.  We had been summoned.

Going Home

I wrote a short little story I’d like to share with you.  Enjoy. The battle was over.  Mangled bodies littered the field, piled on top of each other. I walked among the carcasses, the acrid stench of death filling my nostrils, looking for other survivors.  Around me, other soldiers did the same.  No one spoke.  I looked for signs of life among the dead, and found none.  I wandered for a while, unwilling to give up.  I refused to leave a single man behind.   Some of the other soldiers just stood rooted to the ground.  Some wept quietly.  Others, like
