The Darkness - Part Two

The Struggle Within - Part Nineteen

More On Relaxing When you first begin to try this method, it is best to find a reasonably quiet, maybe even darkened room.

The Struggle Within - Part Seventeen

NOTE: This was written during a time when I was under tremendous pressure and there were many nights that I thought I was cracking under it.
