Please, don't take me wrong, I feel with you. I am just trying to explain that whatever is happening has got some hidden meaning. And I am trying to provoke you to realize that you are not helpless. That, although it may not seem so, your life is still in your own hands, not in some Mr G's or anybody else's.
I can tell you, not from some blind belief, but from my rich experience, that the Darkness gives only a temporary illusion of power to a person. And sooner or later, it may be in this life time or another, it destroys them. Some of them are fortunate enough though, usually through the prayers of others, to wake up before the Darkness devours them completely.
And every single one of them, when exposed in the Light, is utterly powerless and looks pitiful.
If you choose to believe that there is no help, then it is true. If you choose to believe that there is help, then it is true.
Yes, Merrick, I understand what you mean. But when it comes to unchangeable things, such as death, we have to shift our position a little bit, and start talking about some other things just to make ourselves comfortable, to calm ourselves in view of the death. Because in this case, facing the Death (doesn't matter if it is far or close), we have no choice. So, there is only one truth, and it cannot be altered: there is no help. The question is what to prefer: to remember about the truth or not. This is our only choice.
In my case I prefer not to be split into two truths. If we know about two possible truths we are not a unity in itself even if we really believe only in one of these truths. But still we KNOW about another one. What to do with this knowledge? Just ignore it? Then we deceive ourselves.
