Return to Paradise: Chapter 12


The sun rising in the sky almost blinded Alexis as it shocked her awake with its brilliance. She felt natural in the sun, and unlike what she had been told, the heat felt nice and her skin was not burning or melting. She was the only soul around. She got on her feet and headed toward where she remembered Wynn to be. We walk by faith, she heard herself thinking. She tried to recall the details of a powerful dream she’d had, though it wasn’t quite clear right now, and she tried to focus on her thoughts as she walked along. It had been years since she’d been to Wynn’s and she had always gone by tram or car to his house, still she was somehow guided in the right direction. She was hungry, but she put the thought aside and kept walking. Her thoughts were wild today. She wished she could write them down. She wondered if her parents knew where she was. She passed a man dressed in black and said hello. He didn’t answer her. Am I still being ignored? Did they all know about her betrayal to society’s rules of order–her secret writings? She really couldn’t understand why it was so bad–but then, nobody did was was forbidden, and she had, so yes, she was bad. But somehow she was not sorry.

She walked along beside piles of junked computers, stacked about 4,000 feet high. She seemed to walk next to the heap for a long time. She guessed the computer graveyard must have stretched on for almost 10 miles. She’d never seen anything like it. The strange thing was, she recognized the letters on a flat piece of equipment–they looked like buttons. This stuff must be really old, she thought. Her jumbled mind seemed to slowly form into clear thoughts and as she walked, she felt lighter and in awe of the mystery called life that the world was living.


Return to Paradise: Chapter 10


Her dreams took her to a fair land, with greenery everywhere and spectacular colors streaking through the sky. She was walking in the woods, and although it was not permitted for her to walk on the bare earth, she felt a certain ease.

Suddenly she saw a brilliant light that seemed to come from a cloud and reach down to the earth. Lexy felt a sense of peace she’d never known and her body was filled with love. A great voice began to talk to her.

“We walk by faith, not by sight. Be free, my child, from the love of money; content with such things as ye have: for He Himself hath said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.’ So that with good courage we say, The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What shall man do unto me?” Speaking without words, but with her heart, Alexis told the voice her troubles. The answers gave her hope.

“In the world, ye have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I will give to eat from the tree of life which is in the midst of the Paradise of God. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be fearful. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, shall guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus. Let the people know these words you have received.”
