Chapter One - Backwards

Are signs and convictions really real or is it self-imposing?
Is it that we doubt too much or we're just afraid to admit one truth?
And what makes us miss every wave of the sea?

Time is a forward continuum but I've been stuck in its most torturesome dimension... the past.
And finally now I am determined to break free. I've got no energy left to doubt anymore. What I've come to understand is that the moment you recognize the past is the unchangeable and the future is a possibility, the present becomes your best friend and your defining moment. So why can't we stay in the moment? Why do we worry about tomorrow and the past when today has its problems of its own?
What you choose to act on now, the things you hold on closer to, and the things you let go will take you as far forward or backwards according to your efforts. In all sense, it's the danger of expending our own free will and the fact that our choices could take us somewhere horrid. But if we can choose to admit God's truth I think that's when the present will be most meaningful and we'll be able to face it in stillness and.. without fear. Hence, it's not the fact that we can't swim out, it's the fact that we've been fooled into thinking we weren't capable of doing so.
