The mind is an amazing tool, my friends. It is also a bit of a mystery. Not a single scientist on this planet knows how the mind works; how it suddenly hums with life and mediates our outer and inner worlds.

Transcending human brokenness and coming to understand God's true power. Anger erupted within because I felt like a small child being let in on an enormously unreal secret...that was really real. How could this have been withheld from me for four decades? Who would do such a thing to me? Who would not allow God's Grace, Love, Light, Spirit, and Song to fill me from within? Apparently, um..I would.

Abe Lincoln had several breaks. Isaac Newton did too. Tolstoy and Beethoven were cracked at times. Churchill, Van Gogh, and Hemingway...cracked as well. Being sucked into the abyss and spat out the other side is other worldly unpleasant. There are gems that await, though.
