“The Pennsic War” (1996) by Erika This is the real essay, the one that was not changed by hackers. I have always dreamed of traveling back in time to live as did the peoples of Medieval Europe. I could dress in elegant draping garb, create necessities and art by hand, and live more…
My spirit has brought me to a place in life where I realize major changes must happen for me. I have been thinking about getting away from the way society taught me to be (extroverted, competitive, aggressive), and becoming one with my true self (quiet, generous, joyful).
I recently woke up with a small, gentle voice whispering the words “doors of perception” in my ear. I do not fear these kinds of, what some might call, supernatural incidents. I worry not; it isn’t a form of insanity, but simply a natural occurrence of my higher-self, or unconscious spirit, speaking to me.
Many people are suffering these days from a case of excessive ego; constant complaining, anger, paranoia, fear and hate. The ego exists in “reality”, but once you have an awakening moment when you realize that reality is not real (reality is what the dark “shadow” part of your mind, A.K.A. the ego, created and tells you is real), then you begin to go on the journey to find the truth.
