Walk In The Light
Long hailed as one of the western world’s greatest writers, Leo Tolstoy is best known for his epic War and Peace and his novel Anna Karenina. Yet the undiminished popularity of his shorter works – including the two dozen collected here – attests to his equal prowess as a master of the short story. Uncluttered by the complexities of plot and character that daunt so many readers of the longer Russian masterpieces, Tolstoy’s tales illumine eternal truths with forceful brevity. While inspired by a sense of spiritual certainty, their narrative quality, subtle humor, and visionary power lift them far above the common run of religious” literature. Moralists purport to tell us what our lives should mean, and how we should live them. Tolstoy, on the other hand, has an uncanny gift for simply conveying what it means to be truly alive.

Once upon a time, before a time the mighty Tetragrammaton created three beings. The first being was the amorphous Spirit, the second was a female entity named Lilith, and the third being was a male named Metatron. Eons afterward, Lilith and Metatron decided to create third dimensional beings of themselves and so they created humanity in their own image, male and female; in the image of themselves, they created them. Metatron named the man Adam and Lilith named the woman Eve. Since the Spirit is amorphous it granted humankind a unique element called a Soul, but when the Spirit granted humankind its Soul, the first gust was inserted into the man, and then the woman received the secondary breeze. As a result, the man possessed a minor advantage over the woman. Lilith was not at all pleased with this end result, she set out to vindicate her cause on her own and so she seek out the assistance of her most prominent creation, a flamboyant Seraph that goes by the name of Lucifer.
