Life is complex and mysterious. The Magic and the Mire is the story of the mystery and complexity that is my life. Like a lot of us, I experienced a lot of pain in my childhood. Because of that, I was drawn to explore life on earth; being a human being.
My confusion about life, with its suffering and pain, love and joy made me ask all those “What am I doing here?”, “What is the purpose?”, “Why am I experiencing all this?” kinds of questions.
This book is the story of my sexual abuse and it is the story of my spiritual awakening. I am sharing my story in this book in hope that it provides both a place of solace; that you may feel a little less alone in your pain, if like me, you too experienced sexual abuse; but also of inspiration. Perhaps even an awakening.
Have you ever had any of those synchronistic, out of body, “What the heck…there has got to be more to life than meets the eye” kind of experiences? I definitely have. I have experienced quite a number of esoteric and mystical experiences. I share these experiences as a balance against the pain. I was given a glimpse of something more, so this is my vision and my perspective about the nature of the universe. It’s how I am making it through the plot twists in my own story.
By seeking to understand those questions, experiences and challenges, I developed a deeper understanding of life and how to balance it all. This is how I am healing the traumatic wounds of my heart and soul. I am sharing my quest to understand life and, hopefully come out the other side with a deeper connection to humanity and the universe we are playing in.
