As the world tumbles and toils with tumultuous trepidation, I seek refuge from the turmoil by going deeper within. Only the inner sanctum of the sacred heart can save me from the snare of evil that freely roams our hallowed earth both night and day. Only within can I hope to be spared from the soaring egos that assault one another without thought of the visceral carnage that lies in their wake. There too, I’m afforded the opportunity to remain unmasked and unveiled, unlike the bulk of my brethren who are both literally cloaked and metaphorically daggered. Safe harbors await each of us on this dark night of the soul. Simply follow the light within and stay put, dear ones. Stay put.
