The Labyrinth, Part II

Updated on December 25, 2012

Someone Is About To Experience QUITE A Wake-Up Call!

Joseph was unconscious............. he subsequently woke up, astonishingly feeling neither pain nor discomfort! He noticed that he was NOT at home. The area where he is in seem a very dark charcoal grey to pitch black depending upon which specific location! There is an eerily SINISTER feeling about the place.

Joseph wanted to know where he was! This place seems very strange. Besides the darkness of the place, the place is very cold and cloudy. There are also wailing and screaming sounds emanating from this area. He wondered where he was! Is this a dream! This is too surreal!

A disembodied voice told Joseph that he is in HELL. He paid the demonic voice no attention. Then he saw the souls who were here to correct their bad karma and to undergo punishments until they are cleared to proceed forward! He then saw his father. Alois ran to him, warning him to listen and change his ways as this would also be his fate if he elected not to change his ways. Joseph just laughed and pushed his father away!

More apparitions appeared, some looking more demonic and haggard than others. One especially evil soul exhorted Joseph to change his ways. The soul identified herself as a slavecatcher in 18th century Virginia. This soul further stated that while she was alive, she often relished catching escaped enslaved Africans and returning them to their owners. She further related of being gleeful upon hearing the anguished cries of caught slaves. However, she related that on her death bed, she saw her life flashing before her eyes. Her life was horrific. She knew that the place she was going to would be quite unpleasant. For the first time in her life, she was terribly petrified!

A second soul related how he threw his daughter out of the house because she had psychic abilities. He explained that he was alive in 17th century Massachusetts. He was a Puritan and Congregational minister. He stated that his oldest daughter had an unusual psychic gift; however, he believed that this was from Satan. So he thought her to be a witch, threw her out of the house, and disowned her! He related to Joseph that once she was thrown out of his house, no one else would shelter her so she became homeless and eventually perished from the elements. He related how self-righteous he felt. However, his daughter appeared to him on his death bed-she was surrounded by light. He stated that one minutes before his death, dark entities appeared, wanting his soul!

Various souls surrounded Joseph, revealing their errant lives and now how they have to correct their respective karmas before they proceed into the light! Joseph still remained as arrogant and uncontrite as ever! He laughed at the souls. However, one of the souls become very vitriolic, demanding that he repent. A soul added that if he did not repent his ways, he will be here a very long time! He just walked away!

Hell was an intricate place. The upper section were purgatorial like. Souls were interned there for venial offenses. The atmosphere was not entirely while not entirely unpleasant was not enitrely pleasant either. There were no entities guarding these souls. They were left pretty much on their own to work out their karmas until they consider themselves ready to progress to the light. In the middle section of hell, there are some souls who are unrepentant but the majority of souls are remorseful. They see the errors of their ways and are willing to correct their karmas by whatever means are available.

However, in the lower sections, the overwhelming majority of the souls are totally unrepentant. Here are the murderers and others who commit other horrible acts against humaniity. Many of these souls believe that they did nothing wrong but were following the prevailing dictates of the leader/leaders in charge. These souls are those who will remain the longest in hell. These souls are guarded and punished by entities!

Joseph asserted to the souls and entities that he did NOTHING wrong and that he should not be here! Alois interjected, stating that upon the basis of Joseph's life was grievous as his was before him. These souls asserted to Joseph that he did wrong which is why he is HERE! Joseph stated that he wanted to get out of here! In his opinion, he did not belong here!

There was one soul who became increasingly angry. He explained to Joseph that while he was on the earth plane, he performed actions which purposely hurt others, particularly his wife and son. Joseph continued to scoff at this, calling the soul stupid! The soul shook Joseph violently as to try to shake some sense into him! Doesn't Joseph realize WHERE he is? This is definitely NOT a DREAM but REALITY!

Joseph elect not to comprehend his grave situation. He was here to learn a lesson. That it does not pay to treat others cruelly and with total disregard to their dignity! Didn't he realize this! When is he going to WAKE UP and evolve as a human being? When! He refused to change his cruel ways. He maintained that HE did NOTHING wrong. Apparently, he has to learn his lesson. So a demonic entity was about to escort him to the lower rungs of hell for a long time with the purpose of working out his karma! He realized where he was going and was fighting the demon frantically but to no avail. This demonic entity was infinitely stronger than he was. He kept screaming louder and louder. The entity just grabbed him by the hair, dragging him into the lower rungs...................

      Thank you d. william for your compliments and responses to both Part I and II. However, Part II is the final installation of the work. I meant it to be that way. The protagonist was unrepentant despite this experience so he will be detained there for the amount of time deemed necessary!
