The Tormented Soul

“The adversary held my will, and made it a chain to bind me. For when our will is perverted, lust is created; and when we become slaves to our lust, habit is born; and when we don’t resist habit, com-pulsion arises. Thus, as if by interconnected links–which is why I have called it a chain—harsh servitude held my will in bonds.

But my new will, by which I had begun to wish to worship and enjoy you freely, O God, who are our only certain pleasure, was not yet capa-ble of overcoming my old will, grown strong through many years. Thus, within me two wills—one old and one new, one carnal and one spiritual—battled each other, and their discord weakened my soul.”~ Petrarch

The war begins the moment we give way to ‘consideration’ and ‘thought’ of doing what we should not.

My aim is to help others make sense of their own lives, by sharing the failures and misfortunes of mine. Misfortune and failure lead a man to the unmistakable clarity of his deception- That there is no need, nor room for God, because he himself is self sufficient, well educated, rich and capable. The more the man stays his ground, holding fast to his position- the more suffering he shall bring into his life. Suffering is the ground upon which elimination of the false occurs and perception of the Truth begins. After enough time is spent courting Misery, Pain, Humiliation, Slavery, Emptiness, one seeks to stop the bleeding. Some men prefer to bleed their way to death rather than admit their ignorance; that their way will never work. While other men, surrender, which is the beginning of knowledge. By surrendering the man does not fall, he rises and steps foot upon the path of Eternal Wisdom and Truth. It is the path that leads to Eternal Life- the pursuit of knowledge, is the pursuit of Almighty God- Man's Creator. *If you have questions, concerns, need direction, prayer, you may email me.* I do not charge for what Almighty God has given me freely.
