🔥 “I write this brief introduction without any scientific basis to tell you about the night when the maestro, colluding with other parts of me, surrendered me in a crisis in which I suffered body and soul. While some thoughts, which I will not share, for now, were poisoning my mind, I lay in bed. Soon the worms of anxiety, happy with such reflections, began to feed on me. Some part of my body, realizing that my soul was suffering, as if a warning signal was needed, informed the maestro, who, submissively, fulfilled his role. And it was then, while I was lying there, that the body mess began.
First came the knot in the throat, a hanging knot. Then I felt a discomfort in my chest as if tons pressed my guts. The acidity of my stomach made my belly uncomfortable. I felt the beating of my heart, which beat in all parts: in the knot of the throat, in the stomach, and in the veins of my head that ached. At the inflexible orders of the maestro, my heart beat in disarray, as it was already announcing the tragedy. This was when I felt a strong sickness of life, which carried the yellow liquid of the stomach to my throat. With the acid in the throat, I trembled as if the end had come. I was sweating the cup of redemption. Wet the bed, I drowned in the water that was I. My arms no longer responded to me; if they were not dormant, they tingled.
Yes, imagine the drama!
"It can only be a heart attack," I thought, predicting my death. For a few minutes, oblivious to me, I gave in to the apparent body failure. The crisis, however, did not last forever, nor did it culminate in the worst. Time had arrived as tired of that chaos, and, in its own rhythm, it dissipated. So I realized everything, especially that the misfortunes of life would not yet be mortal to me. Oh if the doctors had already invented a consolation for the soul!
Peace. After the near-death comes peace. The false peace of temporary health; health is always temporary. Leon & The Wings Alliance, by S.
