Beyond the Veil: a journey

First, I want to thank all the followers of this blog. Thank you for your participation. I’m glad there are people out there who enjoy poetry and the other things I have been writing about.

Second, for all the new followers, I want to make you aware of this book:

It has been one year and three months since this book was published. What a year it has been. The heart is a treacherous thing. When we follow our own star or our own desire, it ends exactly where Dante and C. S. Lewis and Christ said it would end — heartbreak or something worse.

But the hope in every journey and the hope portrayed in the book is that no matter how hard a person falls, there is still hope when the person turns back, repents. Joseph Ratzinger said faith is a daily turning back.

Each of us has a will. Will we continue on a path of blindness and groping in the dark? Or will we walk in the light of wisdom and obedience despite our despondency?

The road is fraught with temptation, pain, suffering, little pleasantries. There is joy at the end when we walk in God’s will, not our own.

For poetry lovers, the second part of the book is poetry similar to that which I have written on the blog. But the language has a little more astronomical flair and medieval persuasion. I would appreciate it if you all would check it out. Leave a review on Amazon if you would like. It would be helpful.

Many thanks. Thank you for reading. And keep reading.
