Getting Lost in the Mystical Forest

We are surrounded by fakes... Fake news, fake impressions, fake smiles, fake laughter...fake, fake, fake. These frauds saturate our visions and dry up our clear and concise thoughts on the truth. Where do you escape from the fakes? The forest has many faces, yet it resides in the truth. Whether it’s feeling dark, mysterious, brilliant or broken, the forest will show its true self. Power and peace soak into these roots. Freedom and wonder burst into evergreen leaves. We are left with this choice: To fear the truth or explore its never-ending beauty.
