"Before this moment,
I existed in an abstract world - beyond physical presence.
It was not an exact place
in time and space... it was more (in a clumsy way)
'non-located'... a sense
of 'being' and of existing as part of all things.
It was an existence in darkness,
of stillness, of belonging to actions
and processes, yet never
...nor ever desiring to!"
"I had no sense or
pre-warning that - suddenly, out of this eternal darkness and quiet sanctitude
- it was my
moment to be 'gathered' from the darkness and enter the light and activity
It was a dynamic and extraordinary
experience of bright light, of blind but new
sensations, and an overwhelming
pain of urgency to secure the moment
before the opportunity was
lost. I was driven by excitement
and a desperate hope that
I, alone, would
be the one from
the millions, whose chance
had come, to experience and
enhance the light instead
of sleeping in the darkness!"
was determined to succeed"
