Have you ever been in a rut? I feel like so many of us have been in this place lately. You know what I mean. It’s not specifically a financial rut, a relationship rut, a job satisfaction rut, a creative rut. Maybe it is a bit of all of these in someways, and yet, I’m referring to the deep kind of valley that a soul falls into, wanders off of its own accord, gets lost in a morbid wonderland of nothingness.
A wonderland where everything is on the edge, where your mind is creative, awake, and pushing for freedom behind the wall you’ve put up. You can see the lights of the next breakthrough shining like the city beyond the next hill, the highlights on the distant horizon of your night time.
And yet, you can’t quite reach it. You’re burdened down by everything else around you, the sometime meaningless and misery of life. But you should keep going, because you know you must, because it’s that light beyond the hill that drives you forward, that keeps your dreams alive when you sleep at night, that pushes you from your bed to tackle the day when the sun finally rises.
I’m here at the moment. If you are with me, let’s push on. Let’s search for the dark road forward….
The Dark Road Forward. J R Manawa.
The dark mist filtered over me, shrouded my body, and then plunged into me. Cold to my bones. There is always a dark awakening before the storm. The onset of fear and full immersion into the Nether.
