No, I wasn’t planning to become a writer… It just happened to me. The story started coming out of me like a purge, until there was nothing else to say. Once it was over, I knew that it was the end of that story. As the result, I has been transformed. I purged the need to blame others for my own misfortunes, and seeing myself as a victim of circumstances. The plant taught me that we are the masters of our own reality - we create our reality one thought at the time. So think wisely, I was told because every thought is a new beginning.
