The place was still dark as I tried to lift
myself up from a material that looks
more like a mattress. I was in absolute
darkness and couldn’t take a step
forward or backward a the place I’m
standing seems to sink down the more I
tried to move. I gently stoop low and sit
down on the foam-like material before I
heard a voice that sound just like mine
saying “you have the switch to the light,
you’ll need to switch it on to see very
Me: Excuse me, are you talking to me?
Person: Yes Sire. You switched off the
light by yourself and only you can switch
Me: How do I do that? I can’t even see
my hands or anything else.
Person: You do not desire the light sire.
If you do, it will come up.
As much as I don’t understand what he’s
talking about and who he is, I needed to
know where I am and how I got there. I
closed my eye and started thinking deep
on how light looks normally. I played a
scenario of me switching on the light in
a dark room. The moment I opened my
eye the light came up and was so bright
every tiny thing were visible. I tried to
look for the source of the light but could
not find it in the room.
I was indeed on a mattress, a very big
one, bigger than I’ve ever seen. The
room is so beautiful, painted in my
favorite blue and white colour, while
most items in the room are in purple
colour including the clothes. The ceiling
of the room looks like heaven having
vases containing flowers hanging in six
corners of the room. There was a poster
of me wearing a long white robe hung
on the wall left to the exit door. I can
now vividly see the person speaking to
me. He was as if I’m looking into the
mirror. He has everything just like I do
from facial expression, physique,
standing and the way he was speaking.
Only that he wasn’t carrying any mark or
scar and was wearing a purple robe
while I’m still in my gray stripped white
shirt on blue-black jeans.
I stepped down from the mattress and
walk towards the guy who had remain
on the same spot he was since I woke
Me: Where is this and who are you?
Person: It is known sire! I’ll like to take
you outside, you have things to inspect
Me: Inspect? Where is Temmy?
Person: Please follow me sir.
He lead me on as we followed a very big
hallway beautifully designed I’ve never
seen such in my life. We started meeting
people who all dressed in purple and
also look just like me, doing one work or
the other. They all keep repeating the
same sentence whenever we pass them
“Welcome home sire”.
Me: Who are these people and why do
everybody has my face and everything?
Person: It is known sire. Please let me
lead you to the garden.
We followed a path on the right hand
that led into the garden. The garden
consists of so many type of trees
bearing beautiful fruits. It is so big I
can’t quantify it with any known
measuring scale. The misery is,
whenever I point to see a particular tree
or plant, we walk down and get there in
a split of seconds, no matter how far the
tree or plant was initially. Every tree and
plants has a gardener each, tendering
them by applying manure and water at
their require period. All the thousands
and thousands of gardeners I saw there
looks just like me facially and in
physique, but they were also wearing
the purple rob.
Me: This is awesome. How can a garden
be this big?
Person: Only you know the size sire
Me: How can I know the size when I’m
not the one that built it.
Person: It is known sire. Please let me
take you to the ongoing project.
Me: You are confusing me the more with
this your sire of a thing. Which project
again, and what’s my business with the
Person: You requested to see it sire
Me: When did I do that? Wait! I’m
supposed to be at a party with Temmy,
where is this?
Person: It is known sire
Me: I remembered being hit by a plank.
Tell me, I’m I dead? Is this heaven or
Person: You are not dead. If you are, we
won’t be here.
Me: Where would we be or would I be if
Person: Only your Father can say. It is
known that when you die, this place will
be totally destroyed and rebuild.
Me: Which Father are you talking about?
I never grow to know my father. My
mother said he passed before I was
Person: That’s not true sire. Your mortal
father is alive, but I’m not talking about
him. After the inspection, we’ll pay your
Father a visit, He’s been waiting for you.
Me: You have to be speaking in a
language I understand. I got no father,
except you are talking about my step
father that I bears his last name and he
has long passed on too.
Person: It is know sire
Me: It is known, It is known, It is known,
to who now? By the way, I’m not dead
and I’m not in heaven. Obviously I’m not
alive either, where is this place for the
love of Christ?
Person: You are alive sire. It is known,
please follow me and I’ll show you the
He lead me out of the garden and we
entered a field where there are many
children playing and having fun. The
field was so green I felt like rolling on it
and the children were so happy. They
would momentarily stop and greet us
“welcome sire” whenever we pass them.
The kids also have my look irrespective
of their age. We went through the blue
coloured road in the middle of the green
field leading to a magnificent building
which has builders still working on it
even though it looks completed to me. It
was built so high one cannot see the
topmost part from the ground as it
looks to meet the cloud in heaven.
Me: Wao! This is extremely great!
Person: It is known sire
Me: Yeah, I know it is known. How long
has this building been in construction?
Please don’t tell me it is known!
Person: It is known sire. It is as old as
Me: It looks completed to me, why are
they still working on it?
Person: Only your Father can determine
if it is completed. He’s waiting by the
pool of waterfall, please let’s go to him.
He lead me into the building and I
discovered the interior part is even more
beautiful than what I saw outside. All the
doors, rooms and hallways are highly
identical and I don’t know how the guy
knows where to follow as there were no
direction sign whatsoever.
We came to a place that looks like the
center of the building and there was
indeed a massive waterfall filling up a
pool but the pool remain at the edge
and was never spilling out or reducing.
The water was so clean I can see where
the bottom of the pool clearly but still
could not locate where the water flows
Sitting at the edge of the pool, on a
golden chair, raised a little above the
ground level, positioned very close to the
waterfall is an elderly man who neither
look old nor young. He also has my face.
He was surrounded by servants who all
wear purple robes and look like me, like
I’ve been seeing since my expedition on
this unknown planet started. The man
was wearing a bright robe I can best
describe as white. He kept smiling as we
approach Him and eventually stood up
and embraced me.
Man: Welcome son. I’m really happy with
what you’ve done here
Me: Sir, I’m not the one that build this.
Man: (Smiles) you are son, you built
everything you’ve seen since you arrived.
Me: I don’t understand sir. Where is this
place and why does everybody look
exactly like me?
Man: This is your mind son. This is the
mind you have created for yourself. You
have a very beautiful mind son. You
constructed and designed it by yourself,
and I am so amazed at what you are
capable of. But you’ve only be building
and building here, you did not complete
them. And without completing them you
cannot see it manifested in reality. Have
you seen that glorious garden?
Me: I have sir
Man: That’s your minds’ work. You’ve put
your mind in so much work but refuse
to complete the projects. Come here
more often and complete this projects.
Men are waiting for its manifestation.
You can’t just keep it here, when you
die, they will all perish without
manifestation. That would be a gross
waste of talent and opportunity.
Me: How can I be coming here sir?
Man: You already know who you are,
books to read, message to listen to. To
come here you’ll have to be listening to
your inner man (pointing to the guy that
has been leading me on since). He’s your
right hand man. He’s you.
Me: He’s me? Then who are others, the
gardeners, builders and the children?
Man: (Smiles) They are all you. They
represent you in all aspects. That is why
you could have many talents at the same
time. Each person holds a particular
talent or gift you have. Others hold your
emotions, when you are moody, happy
and even when you love. They are all
waiting for your command. Always
ready and obedient, only if you will use
them to their strength.
Me: How do I get use to him, I mean my
Man: You’ve already recognize his voice.
Always listen to yourself. Meditate on
things you’ve read about yourself and
try searching him out for discussion on
things through your pure meditation
and moment of silence.
Me: Is this how every mind looks?
Man: Yes, but some have left their mind
vague and deserted. Therefore they have
nothing to draw from it. And some have
sold their mind to the evil one, therefore
all they can draw is evil, even though
their inner man kept saying No,
cautioning them. Others are like you,
they build their mind and never
complete it. Those people you see
making difference in the world are
those who do complete projects in their
mind. And they are never scared of
taking risk which is the excuse of people
like you. I believe you’ll change son and
I’m waiting for your manifestations just
like the world is waiting.
Me: Thank you sir
Man: You have to leave now, your friend
Me: How do I leave this place?
Man: Just go through the pool and enter
the waterfall. Always remember son, you
can always ask me whatever you don’t
understand. You know how to reach me
and I’m always here.
I entered the pool and headed straight
to the waterfall as my right hand man
keep following. The waterfall bit me so
hard I gasp for breath feeling my shirt
already soaked with water. Then I woke
up to see a bucket of water has just
been poured on me
Temmy: William can you hear me?
Me: (Struggle to talk) Yes (shaking my
