Freedom or Enslavement

We are living in epic times. Darkness’ strength is that it darkens and deludes. By delusion, it makes itself appear more ferocious and unstoppable than it is. But this, too, is its Achilles' heel. It is only an illusion…

A New Angel Among Us

Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Take a look around you. Have a listen. I think a lot of what you’ll hear is fear. It seems to be coming from all corners these days. Whether it’s a virus, or…

Do They Know...

...It's Easter 

...a celebration of freedom and rising from our mortal state.
