There are different categories of perception, many people share the same ones. Which path do you choose, which doorway have you entered, who dwells with you there? It is possible to come back and then travel a new path if one doesn’t get lost, however this is very difficult … indeed, if accomplished, it is a great strength and character builder.
Minds can be warped for a time, or a lifetime should irresponsible choices be made, I should know. Twilight zone is a very real place from which few return … I count my blessings. There are so many blessings ~ from life experience I found that counting the things one is grateful for can turn even the worst situation around. Getting started is the hardest part, for in deep darkness and pain it is difficult to find something to be grateful for.
No one is ever alone, yes, that includes you. Whether you see a physical form or not isn’t the issue, for someone who cares deeply is always there by your side, encouraging you, lending strength to get you through even the hardest of times. Those who have already been there know this to be true.
It would be wonderful if pain didn’t occur, but sometimes our greatest blessing come from just that … and a connection is born with the unseen which otherwise would never have been possible.
Open you mind, your heart and sense it, for it is there. The more you tune in, the more obvious it will be … it is no delusion. It is probably the closest thing to reality there will ever be for one life, indeed the illusion is what is seen with the eyes.
