Don’t be afraid to feel, emotions are beautiful, to feel is a way to deal with life episodes. They say to feel and express everything is a sign of weakness and you will appear vulnerable, I beg to differ. Those who have never tried to feel and resist to experience going through their own emotions will appear strong on the outside but apparently they are fragile on the inside, because they never feel, and when we don’t feel, we will never know how to handle a touch of an emotion, that’s why it will easily drive us insane. Diving deep into a feeling will make us want to swim up for air again, to breathe again, to see everything clear again and to believe once more. Choose to feel. To feel is fearless, it breeds courage.

The Golden Ages of the Dark Ages is an exciting historical analysis about the civilizations and empires that exist around the globe during the European Dark Ages. The use of the maps in the chapters allows readers to visualize the civilizations development away from Europe. There are too many civilizations to compile. Thus, this book is based on two basic philosophies that the time line is limited only to the prominent civilizations within 500 CE to 1500 CE and also to have a minimum of 100 years of history. Readers too must acknowledge that there were many other great world civilizations within and outside of the time line. We can only pick a handful of the civilizations, traditions and empires. This is a factual book that might create further interests for readers to explore in depth some of the revelations. This book too is hoped to help readers to critically analyze their past readings as history has been proven to be distorted by some of the historians.
