Or was it I? Clinging to my survival holding myself back!
I saw a fortified platinum gate sliding in the midst of deserts shutting.
So I ran to the magical door leading to the world beyond, yearning to get to the other side—still wondering, what does a gate stand for in the midst of nowhere?!
Suddenly I heard a soundless, loving voice screaming: Stop!! Don’t you cross that line!
My mind now knows I have nothing to lose; why not run to the unknown new world?
But I had to listen, I always trusted that utter.
The last bit of exit is closing, now, sliding against my thin garments and skin!
As I let my face touch that metallic steel, I felt I had to glance in, to see what it is that the voice is protecting me from.
And there were dozens of hungry wolves, roaring, inviting me in...
My main message is if we fight our inner daemons, learn to forgive and love ourselves, do and attract the good; then we can reach our inner peace, where all other blessings stems from. When we reach this point, we do not have the need to fight or hurt one another, thus, tolerance, compassion, acceptance, and hopefully, earthly peace. In my book “ Walking with the Vain Cattle” I shared through the best truth I knew, my deepest thoughts, emotions, pains, challenges, dreams, gradual healing, evolution, insights, and triumphs which led me to my light. Of course, each of us will have different quests and battles to reach ones happiness and peace. Mine, were mainly, dealing with the conformity, banality, mendacity, and evil of our world, such as war, corruption, slander, manipulation, abuse, etc., and to top it, my own ego .This might explain the choice of the book’s title. Hope it will bring you guidance, awareness, realizations, smiles, messages, inspiration.

The fight with the self/ inner struggle and its monologue. A spiritual drama about the passage from the darkness to the light, the fight between the ego and the spirit in a materialistic world while trying to reach harmony, balance and inner peace. A theatrical musical.
