One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life: that word is love.—Sophocles
Sacred Vow, 4th installment, Chapter 4 (Dark Visits) (concept presentation)
This verse adaptation of the "Dark Visits" chapter of Sacred Vow focuses on the 'dark night of the soul' experience that we all encounter from time to time—wondering who we are, where we are going, and what calls us here.
The individual speaking has found himself drawn into a place—a 'dark night of the soul'—outside his logical understanding, outside his time and space. Though he feels fear for where it takes him, and knows that it is having negative impact on mind and body, some deeper part of self cannot let go of entering into the void—and knows that a great benefit results on the passing through (if only he can make it to the other side)

Sacred Vow is a metaphysical, visionary novel with a romantic focus. Destined soulmates/twinflames travel between many parallel realities, connecting with infinite expressions of their union. The awakening awareness is vital the the repairing a rift in the Absolute Reality.
Can the wind of a butterfly's wing effect climate on the other side of the world? Can the love of two souls heal a great wrong in the universe? "Sacred Vow" offers a page turning delight to cherish.
Ian Sarin enjoys his cup of tea but lately the ritual of it brings other delights. Recently his meditations have slipped into and OBE, visiting his soulmate (twinflame) in parallel dimensions. Visions of the woman play out in his perception, beckoning further visitation. Everything in the room must be just so, with teapot, caned chair, and Ian in place. He cannot hear her speak, but can see her mouthing words, sharing her life. Is this just a vision or is it something else? His reality soon becomes less important than the alternate one that he visits. Ian's health becomes affected and soon he needs help. While visiting an old friend in the mountains, he is introduced to Djalma, an interesting man whose presence comes into play in a large way. He will interact in Ian's life in ways he couldn't have imagined. The visions of Katerina become more intense and play out like episodes of a movie he has seen before. The question so important... why are the visits happening? The answer awaits on a scrap of paper that Ian had tucked away, a remnant of a dream, years before. He was chosen for this...but what exactly is this?
Reincarnation, collective consciousness, romance, love, and life purpose all play large roles. It is a deeply thoughtful and provocative tale that I could not put down. I simultaneously couldn't wait to get to the last page but also dreaded it ending. The author evokes a great understanding of these topics and the mysteries of the universe, yet shares his perceptions in a wonderfully easy to comprehend tone. Readers will come away wonder-filled and satisfied to have read "Sacred Vow."

It comes again...
The shape and mind of me disintegrates,
Until I am at home neither here nor there.
Five senses scream, starved of perception
yet Heart and spirit are overwhelmed with stimulation.
For the chance to know you
I am eager to pass through the veil once more,
Yet still fearful.
Form, now adrift into a formless place,
I free-fall through mists of memory and other lives.
Guide me, Spirit…
Since first entering this breach,
responding to a voice familiar but unknown,
there has been no anchor to secure me.
It opens without warning
and drops me where it may
to haunt for a time,
for meaning, for the connection that lures me here.
Greetings, my friends,
Blessings to you and all you hold dear.
Thank you for watching this verse adaptation
of the "Dark Visits" chapter of Sacred Vow.
This work focuses on the 'Dark Night of the Soul' experience
that we all encounter now and again.
They give us much fear. They batter our mind and body
and yet, some deeper part of ourselves
know that not only must we enter into them
but pass through, so that we may encounter a greater self on the other side.
I wish you peace and guidance
when you find that you must make such a travel, my friend.
