This is a real love story where the man leaves the woman with the devastating words...I need to go for the real gold...She is completely shattered....She completely falls apart... she comes back together a lot stronger.... She knows he is chasing fool's gold...he is on a mission... he has a completely false image of himself...he doesn't yet know who he is... The reader is led along....did he really do that, you must be kidding, women wouldn't do that surely?....It is told in a conversational way as though gossiping over coffee.... The time-line is jumped around in as QB (the woman) remembers different scenes that she has played with Hat (the man). It's a cautionary tale of how when man has a false image of himself, acts with self interest reasons only, is afraid of his own shadow... he destroys all that has been good and beautiful in his life, and rather than face his inner demons, he demonises others... The woman is called QB...the reason is revealed at the end...what the nick name stands for. The man is called Hat because QB looks across at a photo of him and sees him wearing his favourite hat...she can't bear to look at Hat now....Hat is just how she always thinks of him... It is a Bridget Jones style book, but with observations of human behaviour and how the human psyche works...and also how when man strives for spiritual knowledge he often loses sight of living a good life... .
A God like presence has come to earth and entered into the body of a woman who has fallen in love with a man who is self serving in his nature. In the female form she wants to come to earth and see for herself why man is blowing his world apart. The man is abusing his power, he treats women poorly, and he is lying to himself about his motivations. He has a very polished public image, and tells everyone he is here to serve God's will. Behind closed doors he is abusive in his ways. The man has so many belief systems about how God should be he cannot recognize her when she arrives. He is terrified of being found out in his lies... The man gets into a relationship with the woman. He changes his mind about her not being right for him, and he begins to fall in love with her...but he keeps fighting a power battle to keep himself on top of his lies and self-sabotaging ways. He has styled himself into a spiritual guru and keeps telling the woman/God how ignorant she is....he uses his belief systems from a place of fear and murders his own happiness. The man is reflective of the world and how using beliefs, religious or spiritual, in a way that creates divide and separation, has kept the world in a state of perpetual chaos.

And now, with his death, brings the possibility for something entirely new - someone who may be able to transform "the Great Whore" into something of her original glory - the Glory which is the simplicity of Love.
My journey to self discovery and healing through Ayahuasca. Tragedies I have faced, fears I have overcome. Very relative to others, with alot of inspiration especially for those who struggle with depression or anxiety.
His life was terrible. He couldn't tell the overwhelming bad from the trickle of good. 24 hours felt like 24 years. Going to school and coming back was jumping through hoops all by its own. George persevered, if only for his sake, until things became increasingly dire. Breathing air was hardly better than six feet of dirt and a tombstone. But things changed. After 14 years, George finally believed.

A boy of 17 intrigued by all things subtle and often over-looked, is diagnosed with a multitude of mental illnesses, and therefore prescribed a vast array of medications. Flattened by the weight of his peers judgement, he isolates himself away for years, refraining from all social contact and destroying all that is technological, but for one item, his laptop. With this lone piece of hardware he begins to write out his daily thought process, delving deep into his mind and its peculiar predicament. This habit however, begins to lead him further away from the social norm; letting the onset of further troubles lead psychologists and his family to the conclusion that his mind has begun to break down. Now left with little options, he begins to dig a little further into his now labelled "insane" mind, and unravels a philosophical outlook that warps the boundaries of 21st century living, and therefore sends him on a journey for not only his sanity, but for his life.
