Reading those words,
Something inside me snapped like a twig.

Suddenly grace descended and the veil evaporated
Leaving only radiant life in which I was merged and drowned.

Feeling like a child in a garden paradise
Like a happy animal wondering at the deep silent Now

Time fell away and I gazed at the flowers for eternity.

In love with everything
Laughing at the obvious,

Which for 29 years had been so clear

That I was blind to it.
