An Endless Inferno begotten through the Privation of Spirit

Getting stuck in a rut ain’t nothing to scoff at. It can happen to anyone. To break its hold you may think it is only a matter of shaking things up and doing things differently. If only it could be so simple. All sorts of people get caught in very complex loops and by consequence run around aimlessly in circles trying to escape their fate. The various degrees of hell we create for ourselves may be subjective on the one hand and on the other a very real and mutually shared pattern of wretched behaviour. Being aware of the potential snares that bind us to a life of monotony and suffering is not enough to alter our course. Neither is trading one burden for another an actual way to emancipate ourselves from a bottomless existential pit. Dante engages the thinking of his generation to go where few have the courage to explore. He envelops the world with his poetry so as to shed light upon the various psychological aspects that keep us entombed in existence and sleep walking through life. To this day his work is revived because of its timeless relevance. By it we are encouraged to make sense of the absurdities and to bridge the gap of unknowing with meaning and thoughtful sentiments. The illusionary progression that holds sway over our world gradually fades as we delve deeper into the realm of soul, for the way out of the inferno is by going within.

Love & light,
