Interests
I've been gone for a while. It's a strange and incredible story, that would take me days to really get into, so I'll try to keep it short and simple.

I moved back to West Virginia after having lived with my sister for two years. It was the worst experience in my life, though I did learn some valuable things that will inevitably help me for decades to come. I had a seething hate for that part of my family (her, her husband, and her son my nephew). I eventually forgave them, but haven't talked to them in some time. I had started practicing kinds of magic while I was there. I started drinking and doing drugs, because of absolute, biting depression.

When I came back, I continued to drink, but that too went away. I got a new job at a restaurant. It's a great job, I'm making $8.00 an hour with a raise coming up soon. I like the people I work with, and I like the company I work for. I'm up for a promotion after two years, which is fantastic.

I became an agnostic for a while, then I started studying Buddhism. I became a Buddhist soon afterwards, while also learning about other world religions, in particular Eastern religions and philosophies.

Now I'm a Christian (in practice only). I would consider myself a "Christian mystic" if anything. I don't belong to any particular Christian church or denomination, though if I was forced to give an estimation of what I belong to, it would be classical Protestantism (as opposed to "mainstream" or fundamentalist Protestant Christianity). I've been praying and meditating daily, as well as listening to lectures by Manly P. Hall, Alan Watts, Ajahn Brahm, and others.

I came back because of series of dreams I've had compelled me to write what I've been shown down. I've been practicing lucid dreaming for a while now. For some time, I've mostly been talking to religious leaders and teachers, and other great minds through history. I've spoken with the Prophet Muhammed, the Gautama Buddha, Lao Zhi, Confucius, Joseph Smith, L. Ron Hubbard, as well as various angels and demons. It's been an overall interesting experience. Up until about a week ago, I was doing that, but one dream started a kind of revelation for me that I want to write a small book about.

So, that's why I'm back. You may think I'm crazy, you may think I'm delusional or hallucinating, but I know what I've been shown and told, and I hope by writing about it, I may help other people.

Love you all, glad to be back. :)
