As a young man, Dion Athamas was spiritually summoned to rapture then tenured god status. He had been endowed with all the benedictions to achieve sacredness: a devout flock, the power to heal and a covet for control. He also held a deep desire and ability to influence justice and universal liberty. The setting: the fictional town of Forgedmont, Mississippi, in the 1950s. Against great opposition he strived to become a new-age god; the earth was his oracle. He found faith-based conviction to be lacking in reason and truth. He chose to maintain an instinctive path to holiness. Regrettably for him and his followers, there were a great many roadblocks. He was forced to face off against the church, community, prejudice, family and scheming dreams influenced by fallacious spirits, all set forth to hamper his ascension to divinity.
The initial offering consisted of free passage through the congested celestial gateway, subsequently entry into divinity, and then finally god status. For some unexplained reason, I began to believe that the apparition was the embodiment of my father. Even though I knew little about my dad, there was a hint of correlation between my nature and the manner of the apparition. Whoever’s spirit the spectre represented, they had a message for me, and the message profoundly detoured both the course of my life’s philosophy and my spiritual motivation. You might not want to hear what I have to say, but I have a powerful yen to share my story with anyone willing to listen.
This is what the spirit communicated to me before he left. As I sat bewildered in my bed, the genial spirit mindbogglingly informed me that I possessed the capacity to become an authentic god. That if I chose to focus on becoming a god, I had all the blessings within me to do so. The spirit spoke of my pure grace and the assured potential for me to grow mercy within my heart and the hearts of others to boundless dimensions. He assured me that becoming a god was entirely within the art of the possible. He promised that I would receive obscured assistance as I braved my mission, and he besought me to always question the morality of the modern world and snub those without deep, benevolent ideals.
About the Author
I have been writing poems and short stories for most of my life. It was not until I retired from my government position working with Special Needs individuals that I was able to focus on writing full time. The treatment of Special Needs people fostered in me a search for the explanation for the absence of morality in mankind. I have degrees in psychology and sociology from the University of Calgary, Alberta.
