So, there I was, halfway between going up and coming down; halfway between throwing up and calming down; halfway between growing up and throwing down, when suddenly it hit me and everything became clear. The realization was as vast as the field of stars from which it came. It was as though I had just awoken from a dream in which I was dreaming about waking up from a dream from which I could not awake. The fingers of my hands felt new against the face of my head. In this pristine moment of clarity even the sun in its infinite wisdom seemed to shine more clearly through the haze of what had gone before; clouds now cut and scattered into particles before the rampage of this new found glory. I could hear whispers of children miles away. I tasted food cooked in a kitchen of a house down the road from the molecules floating in the air. Every synapse fired in perfect synchronization with the beating of the Universal heart. And I knew that this enlightenment was not just a moment, but a lifetime of things to see with now newly opened eyes.
And what caused this, this epiphany; this satori; this merger with the Life-divine? You. From the field of stars and all that has gone before, You were made. At an exact moment all those years ago, the world held its breath and wished for something amazing to happen. An on that wish, the Universe created You. With the head and shoulders of a god and a heart which is all your own, you are an angel on earth and your power is limitless. When I set my eyes upon you it was as though I saw directly one of the children of the sun, and in that moment I knew my destiny. And in that moment my wings were unbound from the tethers of the conventional world, and with gilded wings we cannot ever be bound again. Three dimensions seem like black and white television compared to the Here and the Now that Is at this heart of being. The four walls fell away and the stars became our chandelier. And so, because of You, I discovered my nature: to reflect the starlight for the rest of the world to find its way…
“Everyone else reading this right now thinks that I am talking to them, but I am not. I am talking to you. I love you.”
