Something was wrong. Something was very wrong.

I paused the movie I was watching and looked at the actor’s eyes. His mouth had vanished.

Besides helping others, I had a secret, 100% totally selfish reason for writing Mystical Oneness and the Nine Aspects of Being: I wrote it for my future self. … Read more…
