Daily I transcend to higher states of mind and deeper states of soul. As Jacob fades, Ibrahim rises from the ashes. The glorious gift of consciousness wraps me in its luminous bosom. Effulgence and clarity are my brothers, while love and bliss are my sisters. Unity permeates all perception, all phenomena. The shadow which long has blocked the light of the inner infinite has been lifted from my heart. I am married to peace, and while God’s gates stand before me in all their magnificent power, I must needs remain to ferry eager voyagers across the waters of spirit.
