The Second Journey
by O'Collins, Gerald, a book
given to me by Dec in December 1984 helped me through the crisis of leaving Fr. Maciel and the Legion of Christ, leaving that second -oppressive- womb, and transitioning out of my prolonged youth into manhood. It was a bumpy trip. But no regrets. I did it my way!
The Third Journey would be from my arrival in Washington DC in February 1985 to the present moment: recovery, wellness, building a new life, a new career, biting off more than I can chew, eating and digesting it somehow.
Reaching a certain plateau of wellbeing. Emotionally and spiritually better than ever before, and with the Grace of Life and Health. At that stage where I don't need to prove anything to myself or others. I already slew the dragon.
