A preachers son from a small town down South that people have never heard of has a very conflicted soul. He must choose to love those that dont love him. He must still grow up with the perception that he is not allowed to make the same mistakes every mortal man makes. He has questions that he should already have the answers to. But the truth is he doesnt have them. Consciousness Before Conscience is about being aware of the world around you so you can make the right decisions on how to tackle lifes challenges that lies ahead of you. It is a collection of reflections. Just when that love that balanced you leaves you, things begin to shift. You become unbalanced and even fall at times. Questions start to be asked within. Why was I allowed to mess this up? Why was they allowed to mess this up? Why should I love those who dont love me? Love them even when they view me as inferior and I know God made us of the same dust of the earth and we have the same blood flowing? Does God see me? What is my purpose? Why have I become this new man? Balance has been interrupted. But the only way to get it back is to write out all of my days dreams and nights fantasies. Its a journey out of hurt into happiness once you realize the only way out is through love. This is my journey, our journey. Journey to happiness has always been about the love we were created from and born with. We just have to get back to it.
