“I was so lost, so far gone” thought Julian as he sat on the edge of the bed contemplating his current predicament. All he could do was wait it out. To him, it felt like indefinite Saturday detention. While Julian was forced to sacrifice his normal existence which he saw as secure, there was a quiet calm that filled his entire being.
This period of waiting prompted Julian to get in touch with his spiritual self and ride with the cosmic flow. Time spent alone and without the influence of the outside world caused his vision to change. With the blinders off, his old version of reality now felt like a dream, better yet an illusion. Julian could now see himself for who he really was: a spiritual being fighting spiritual battles in the world of flesh and bone. “These Astrology books I’m reading are on to something” he mused. Julian especially liked what the books had to say about Neptune and Pisces. He could certainly relate.
Feelings of powerless morphed into Divine Understanding. Living in the realm of No Time he was able to determine which way he needed to go. The passing of each day being utterly slow; his future: To Be Determined–by going his own way instead of the old way. The current state of his existence being a chrysalis.
Julian emerged from his room at the New Perspectives rehabilitation center and breathed a deep sigh of relief. He felt faint, woozy, but this was no drug high. He thanked God for another chance as he walked down the corridor to join the others for another group meeting.
