REVEAL

01 Man & Universe

The most hidden things are those that have always been in front of your eyes.

There is a universe that becomes visible only after you step away from it.

Seek a sense of perspective if you want to get the big picture.

DO WE STAND A CHANCE?

Posted on by francescoarnone

DavidGoliath1

There are moments in life when we all might feel defeated and overwhelmed, but we always stand and chance if we don’t yield to despair and gather strength from the source of all things!!

EXCERPT 12, from “Jesus Smith and the Ordinary Wonders”.

…“That was the first time one of seven eldest came to battle.  We were all overwhelmed and caught off guard.  Nobody thought it could ever happen.”

“What makes you think we stand a chance now?”

“The prophecy, the very reason why Belphegor attacked you in the first place.  It says another savior will came, born from mother earth, capable of unlocking minds and defeating death.  He will restore the first heaven, become the master of the Gregorians, and train the warriors of the new order.  Humanity will finally get the chance to a fair fight.”

“What is the first heaven?”

“People call it paradise on earth, or The Garden of Eden.  We call it the first heaven because it’s where the journey begins.  It is Earth the way it was and still could be.”

A sudden silence followed Cort’s last statement, as if the monster that had been roaring from the sky had no more reason to interfere…

A TIMELESS CHALLENGE…

Posted on by francescoarnone

We all face challenges we never wanted or even imagined,

even though deeply rooted in a past we can’t remember…

 

EXCERPT 11, from “Jesus Smith and the Ordinary Wonders”.

“Who wants to kill Jesse?” Gaia needed to ask, somehow

already familiar with her unborn son’s nickname.

“Why do they want to kill my son?” she continued, wanting to

hit something.

“He is to become the master of the Gregorians, the guardians

of the first heaven, tamers of demons, and keepers of the gate,”

said Cort while respectfully standing.

“Being a Gregorian didn’t help me much against Belphegor or

whatever you called him.”

“The name is right; you’ll never forget it.

Before succumbing, you decimated its hordes, but you were not

ready for such a heavy weight; nobody would have been…

THE TRUE YOU…

EXCERPT 10, from “Jesus Smith and the Ordinary Wonders”.

“I have been assigned as your bodyguard,” continued the
dwarf. “It didn’t take me long to get the job, yet I barely made
it. One more minute and it would have been too late.”

Gaia was totally lost.
“I know, I know. I better start from the beginning.
You were the highest-ranking Gregorian guard when
Belphegor killed you. I immediately asked to be your
designated guardian in your next life, but one minute in
the second heaven is equal to ten years on Earth. Again,
I barely made it.”
Gaia’s bewilderment induced Cort to direct the conversation
to more immediate matters. “You will soon be
under attack. They want to kill Jesse!”
“Who’s Jesse?” Gaia heard herself asking, thunder
now punctuating their phrases, as if a grunting monster
was trying to scare them into silence.
“You will call him Jesus Smith, but the kid is not
going to like wearing such big shoes and will pick Jesse
instead. You see, he will call the shots.”
“Who wants to kill Jesse?” Gaia needed to ask, somehow
already familiar with her unborn son’s nickname…

WOULD YOU LISTEN?

EXCERPT 9, from “Jesus Smith and the Ordinary Wonders”.

“I am listening,” she said in a commanding voice.
“I have been assigned as your bodyguard,” continued the
dwarf. “It didn’t take me long to get the job, yet I barely made
it. One more minute and it would have been too late.”

Gaia was totally lost.
“I know, I know. I better start from the beginning.

THE MOMENT OF TRUTH…

EXCERPT 8, from “Jesus Smith and the Ordinary Wonders”.

Gaia stood up and towered over her guest, already
tired of what looked like a well-thought-out practical
joke. She got hold of Cort’s arm and led him out.
“I am sorry,” she whispered while closing her door.
She was still pressing her back against it, eyes shut,
when somebody coughed discreetly from inside the
room. Cort was leaning against the fireplace’s mount, his
expression rather amused.
“We need to talk!” he said, thunder growling again in
the distance.
A bigger storm was closing in.
Gaia sat in front of him, uncertain but ready. “Why
didn’t you come in the same way last night?”
Cort gave her a severe look. “I am not here to show
off. Like I said, I am a close friend, something you’ll
greatly need…soon!”
“Why me?” she argued. “I need less help than so
many others out there.”
“That is quite right, dear, but nobody else is about to
give birth to the leader of the Gregorians.”
Questions exploded like fireworks in Gaia’s mind, yet
she paused to take in Cort’s words; for some reason, they
didn’t sound like a joke anymore…

WHAT IF…?

Posted on by francescoarnone

What if we could read minds? What if we have always been and will always be?  

Is life really this incomprehensible interval in the Void or is it part of a bigger picture?  Will we ever find out?

EXCERPT , from “Jesus Smith and the Ordinary Wonders”.

…”Yes, I can read your thoughts. You will soon remember how to read mine.”

She wanted to talk but remained silent. Many questions were competing to come out first, but there was no winner.”

“Please say something,” encouraged Cort. “Your appearance is quite different, but your voice sounds just as I remembered it.”

Gaia thought fast. She had found the dwarf’s performance quite impressive. For a moment, she even believed he had read her mind.  She concluded he was just trying to buy some time.

“I don’t have much to offer, but you can take some bread and cheese on your way out.”

The dwarf shook his head and then locked on her with his piercing gray eyes. “I don’t want to sound rude, but I am not going anywhere.  I am here to make sure you and the boy will be OK!”

THE MEANING OF LIFE…

Our existence is like a three acts comedy that we expect to understand, even though we don’t remember the first, did not go through the second, and did not see the third…

EXCERPT 6, from “Jesus Smith and the Ordinary Wonders”.

Gaia was puzzled and found it increasingly difficult not to stare at the many ridges on the dwarf’s skin.

“My wounds were never as deep as yours, and they are perfectly healed,” he reassured, “just like yours will be by the end of the day.”

A sudden discomfort insinuated in Gaia’s mind.  She had always favored logic over riddles and needed to know why a perfect stranger was talking to her like the closest of friends.

“I was your best friend in a time you can’t remember,” continued Cort, as if he had just read her mind.  ” We have fought side by side, but I have never been as good as you.”

Gaia froze, waiting for a comfort her logical mind could not provide.  Cort’s next statement didn’t help…
