On the path,

I thought I was alone.

I turned to my left. I saw a lie.

I was sick, lonely, troubled.

I approached the lie. He stretched out his hand. I consumed the alluring placebos he offered to me.

Later, I queried the deceiver. "Why do your ways not comfort my pain any longer?"

He merely shrugged his shoulders and wandered off.

I dared to follow.

I journeyed, following the lie and I was tortured and tested.

Once sicker, lonelier and more troubled, I said goodbye to the lie.

I gazed to the right. In the distance was Truth.

The path that led to Truth was overgrown.

Barely trodden.

Long and arduous.

I walked the path.

I became weary.

He smiled and beckoned to me.

I heard whispers of encouragement dance around my heart.

I persevered.

Troubled waters trickled out of me and lay themselves amongst the pebbles in the path.

I was very close.

I was able to look upon the familiar face of truth.

Lovely Truth was encompassed in light - empowered by love.

I was ready to embrace, but I could not put my arms around him.

Between Truth and myself was a narrow gate.

I queried, "Why did you beckon me?"

Truth smiled and pointed to the gate.

I touched the latch to open the gate,

But found it to be locked.

I was perplexed. I became angry.

I queried, "Why do you play with my heart as did the deceiver?"

I was answered with silence,

but surrounded by love.

And so began my quest to open the gate.

I arranged my earthly tools and set to the task.

So engrossed in my work,

I did not see the tears of Truth.

My nimble fingers worked on the latch.

I failed to see blood trickling from the outstretched hands of Truth.

His hands held the key,

to unlock the gate.

I hungered for Truth. I was ravenous.

The deceiver appeared on my left. He said, "I will help you with that gate."

He positioned himself between me and Truth.

And I lost sight of Truth.

Steadfast -- hands outstretched -- marked with his blood.

Bored with our labors, deceiver wandered off. In search of a new playground.

There he remained.

The Way.

His blood ran in rivers.

His face contorted with physical pain.

He held the key,

unwavering in his bloody hands.

Still waiting for me.

I fell to my knees.

Reverence
Awe
Splendor
Glory

Washed over me as flesh met flesh.

I now had the key.

To embrace Truth.

And receive Life.
