There once was a time when Monsters ruled the world...
They would dwell on each thought, allowing it to fester and grow stronger, until they were suddenly overcome by the monster that once was but a little thought. And so these monsters grew stronger and became nastier, to the point that they would capture the body and soul in which they dwelled, filling each person with doubts, self animosity and especially a need to identify ones self in comparison to others.
Those that saw the monsters for what they really were, were often taunted, shunned or even killed. Those enlightened by the truth would cry out ‘forgive them, for they know not what they do.’ Those captured by their monsters laughed and continued to rid the world of those that opposed their correct way of life. Others followed the teachings of those who had awakened, and their monsters were weakened by faith in those who brought truth. But their monsters only lay dormant for a short while, for after some time their monsters awoke and the truth of the messages were lost. Again, they became confused and overcome by fear. Their monsters sought to control their fate, all the while claiming their faith remained. But, their ability to allow the Truth to enter their lives became tainted by their monsters preference to understand and search for its own truth.
Most were not aware of what monsters dwelled within and so believed all they wanted was to discover the Truth. They did their best to search for the Truth but they never succeeded because they never realized that the doorway to the Truth was hidden deep within them. Monsters alone never had the capacity to fully understand Truth, for they dwelled within the mind, and the mind alone cannot understand Truth. But their monsters persisted. They believed that if they just tried harder, they would be able to find and understand their purpose. They never realized that their minds were only a small tool in the greater functioning of the Truth.
