School, NaNoWriMo, Writing, Traveling, Family, Learning, Religion. All of these things and more has captured my attention and energy.
For those who are true followers of this blog, I am sorry for the absence! No amount of excuses and reasons could erase the 8 months that I haven’t posted anything. I can only hope that by providing you all with the truth, it could be remedied.
To be completely honest, as many drafts I’ve written and had the intention of posting onto this blog, I just haven’t found the time or motivation to follow through. Upon the many awakenings I’ve had about life and the spirit realm in general, the biggest of them all was the fact that I didn’t, couldn’t, and wouldn’t forget G-d. I think that’s the biggest reason why I’ve been away. So many people in the Spiritual Community talk about leaving religion behind and not believing in a Higher Power. This, above all other things, is something that I cannot believe to be true for myself. A lot of people on this site (or people that I used to know), who claim to be spirituals, go by this system.
There was no one I could look to, could feel validated by, or just have a common conviction that G-d is real, always been real, will always exist even when we don’t. I had to stay true to myself, but at the time I had forgotten myself, so I had to withdraw.
I went deeper into my own soul and started searching the ultimate truth. Religion has always played a major role in my life, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, all three have been present in my upbringing. The common thread was the belief in a Higher Power.
I’ve reached the conclusion that while Astral Projecting, Lucid Dreaming, Reincarnation, Past Lives, Chakra Work, Angels and Demons all exist—there is a Higher Power above it all. I call Him the G-d of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob. And I no longer need to feel validated by anyone or anything to believe this true reality for myself.
As for the other reasons/excuses/areas of life:
- I’m graduating from High School in two weeks!
- In November of 2016, I wrote the first draft of a novel I’ve been planning for two years! I also joined a Writer’s Group and attended my first workshop.
- I attended this awesome event known as Book Con this year. It was held in New York and I got to spend four amazing days there and in New Jersey. It was my first trip out of state, so it was amazing to finally travel and visit new places and experience new things.
- After graduating, I will be mainly focused on taking writing courses and starting a new blog that focuses on the Writing Process and Book reviews.
- I’m at a point in my life where G-d is put above everything else, while spiritual realities and all that comes with it are connected through His Word.
It was an amazing feeling to have written my first novel, read my work to a group of people that I didn’t know but eventually grew to know a little better, and then visit one of the places that I’ve dreamed of visiting for a long time.
Now here comes the part where I talk about what will happen to this blog…
For now, I don’t think there will be any new posts in regards to spirituality on this blog. Since I’m starting a new one, my focus will be mainly on that one. I see that some people come across my old posts every now and then, but it probably won’t hurt to work on this book that I believe will help people see the world differently, like the Matrix movies. (Hint: the initial concept of my story was actually inspired by the Matrix movies, Inception, and common knowledge about the spirit realm).
If there is anyone who would like me to write about something or talk about something, perhaps I can. Otherwise, I’ll be working on other projects.
