The betrayal of Julia by her own beliefs is a brilliant portrayal of humans to conspire the outcomes through assumptions, and how the gravity of negative emotions can suck you inside the grudge and hate that is undeserving to existence. The vulgar and the brutal onslaught of the feelings ascending from the underworld by love is the truth of Armageddon that began unwinding with the winding of the creation itself. The flexing of the power of the human will to trust and believe upholds the beauty in the force that provides the universe with sustenance. The blueprint for understanding divinity in our being is to discover our infinite ability to love, with empathy and compassion.
