Victims of the Voice. A contemporary parable for anyone who wants to achieve, through direct experience, their full potential. The author, Vic Van Maren Jr. has an encounter with his muse Izy, an Idea. This powerful idea has existed in the space of breathing in and breathing out, feeling safe. He had avoided being usurped by the darkness of silence by hiding in the cracks of no time, observing the slow tedious tick of time. Boredom begins to slide into those crack of no time, squeezing to tighten it's grip. Boredom needed to eat and ideas were his favorite meal. Izy is afraid, yet refuses to be silent and has the audacity to express himself as an idea whose time. He chooses to speak himself into existence. His only path of escape is through the slow erupting volcano of darkness and silence, then past the thundering crack of boredom's piercing growl of hunger. He leaps into the space in the flicker of a moment ... into now. On his road to expressing himself he has encounters with other ideas. Doubt, Attitude, Belief, System, Anger, Opinion, Feelings, Resentment, Fear, Shame and Guilt threaten to stop him on his road to expressing himself, as an idea whose time has come. These encounters have tested his resolve and dimmed his glow of enthusiasm. He has heard the offerings of odd beliefs that caused confusion to run unrestrained, producing havoc in the minds of man. He also saw many secrets that were being withheld. He is determined to share those secrets by introducing the possibility that language, when spoken responsibly, has great power. Will Izy have the audacity to be who he is really meant to be, and will it be enough to keep him from becoming another victim of the voice?
