Between Two Gates

A Young Man's Quest Toward Birth

On January 27th, 2021, my world shattered as I bid farewell to my beloved thirty-two-year-old son. This devastating loss sent me on a soul-searching quest, a yearning to understand the journey of his spirit beyond the confines of this earthly realm. I longed to pierce the veil separating us and connect deeply with Samuel's soul.

In this exploration, I discovered that my fiction writing held a profound purpose beyond mere storytelling—it became a spiritual practice, a gateway to the metaphysical world. Through this creative process, I realized that our biographies are not confined to our earthly existence alone. Still, instead, they continue and unfold in the realm of the soul world, intertwining in an infinite loop of eternal stories.

Driven to share my son's soulful journey, I wrote: Between Two Gates - A Young Man’s Quest Toward Birth. This novel takes its inception from Sam's passing and unfolds until his rebirth. However, what also developed during the months of writing was far beyond my imagination—a remarkable collaboration between Sam and myself that transcended the boundaries of our separate realms.

Throughout this awe-inspiring creative odyssey, my son's presence became an elixir of spiritual wisdom and insight, infusing every word, every page with his essence. I hope his profound inspiration radiates from the depths of these written words, touching the hearts and souls of those who embark on this literary journey.

Together, my son and I ventured forth, piercing the veil that separates the physical from the metaphysical, the earthly from the ethereal. The outcome is a tale that defies conventional boundaries, pulsating with vibrant energy and capturing the sublime wonders of the soul's realm.

This writing endeavor has touched me in ways beyond measure, igniting a profound sense of joy amidst the depths of sorrow. Its impact on my spiritual growth and healing is immeasurable, a testament to the transformative power of love and creativity.

In Between Two Gates, I pay homage to Sam's extraordinary, hierarchical legacy, and through its pages, I aim to immortalize the boundless love that forever binds us. I sincerely hope this book becomes an eternal tribute, a beacon of light that resonates with the infinite love encapsulated within its narrative.

May the pages of this novel serve as a testament to the enduring connection between a parent and child, a vessel through which love transcends time and space and a source of solace and inspiration for those who embark on this extraordinary journey of remembrance and resilience.
