The world is a parable, two stories at once, one layered beneath the other.
On the outside, it is the story of a brute called Reality, a bloodless monster hosting an army of fiends, beasts, lunacy and, worst of all, futility.
On the inside, it is a story of its own Author with you alone, in eternal love, and every challenge of this adventure just another expression of that love, drawing the two of you yet closer.
The world is a parable, a story on two channels at once.
On which channel do you choose to spend your precious time?
