"Happiness feels like heaven, and its memory is reason for hope
when life makes it hard to breathe, and days seem impossible to face."
When the seat in which I sit, the size of the earth in which I explore, becomes so beautiful that my mind can no longer accept it to be real, my reality becomes controlled by the very imagination that tries so hard to understand it.
I force myself to journey away from the very heaven I have found and I am left alone with myself and the ripple in the water in which my reflection now lies.
As I look into his being I find only ugliness as my mind cannot escape the eyes staring back. Fighting to choose whether to breathe, to live, and to keep my candle a flame as the world I share with my reflection smothers and blinds me from the universe in which I now feel abandoned, I have no choice but to decide,
Do I leave the knife where it lies, or take it, so that I can esape the heaven I no longer can find?
The universe, through all this, I fear, more than anything. My life, through all this, I hate even more.
is a conversation, I had with myself.

This book illuminates the path to turn thoughts toward a brighter, more comforting future. It teaches us the art of relinquishing the past, embracing the present, and setting our sights on a future where the mind regains control—a challenge that stands as the author's greatest triumph.

This very mind eventually comes to a state of acceptance and grows to create nothing but beauty that through art can be preserved in its entirety.
