The Extraordinary World Sep 28, 2014 7:55am

I don’t know what it feels like to wander in this reality as the main character, I can only describe it to you from the perspective of one of the protective mentors who watches over the main character in this story.  She took my hand and pulled me into the world with her, however unprepared I was.  It’s important to have plans, but so many life changing adventures are the ones that catch you unawares.In the Extraordinary world, time passes differently.  You feel and see the love of other people more intensely.  You feel like you are outside of yourself sometimes and the troubles “out there” in the Ordinary world seem….well, they seem ordinary, trivial, meaningless in a way that they didn’t seem before.  If you haven’t traveled here, it’s hard to explain this reality.  An analogy I visualize is swimming underwater.  The sounds of the Ordinary world are muted.  You feel enveloped by the water and you feel a part of a different, mysterious world.  You come up for air and then dive back down into the water again.  Fighting the water makes things worse, so you let it hold you and surround you.  You learn to move where the current takes you.  You let go of the control you think you had in the Ordinary world and you trust in the direction you are going now.
