(UPDATE: I can't bow out just yet. I need to set a few things right and make come corrections first.)
So, I don't really know how to go about saying this. But recently, I had a very vivid and terrifying dream about the Four Last Things. I will not go into the details, but I will say that the dream really affected me for the rest of the week. After dreaming about Death, Judgement, Heaven, and Hell, I find that the volume on everything else in this life has been turned down drastically. Suddenly, I find that politics--even Church politics--do not matter to me as much as they once did. I look at past posts on this blog and in different forums, and I ask myself how I could have been concerned about such issues.
Suffice to say, the Mrs. and I went to confession immediately after this dream I had. With that being said, I would like to apologize to everyone who I have calumniated unjustly, everyone who I have tarnished, and for stirring up enmity between any people.
At the moment, I do not know if I will return to my "way of thinking" before that awful nightmare. This new perception may be fleeting. But for now, I cannot see myself looking at things the way I used to. Today, I don't think anything is as important as it used to be except where we go when we die. Honestly, I might not be the same again after this. Old priorities may die off. I could be wrong. But for now, I think it's break time.
