A Lingering Encounter

It came out of the blue.

I managed to “capture” this otherworldly scent in few words:

Your invisible nearness – the story of a lingering fragrance.

Nothing worth mentioning happened outside myself, this so soothing Presence was rather triggered by an immediate insight of sorts…but what a poignant feeling of ease and reassurance…

It was quite extraordinary:

There was no yearning anymore. No guilt. No bad conscience. No sense of shortcoming. A blessed feeling that “I” didn´t need to “do” anything specific, since everything was formerly done. Instead of “doing” I felt I was being “done”…Perfect poise…- there was no distinction between me and Living…

So difficult to put this in words. It was an ineffable peace which somehow had no “content”…

Coincidence or not, I bump into Michael Marsh´s article. His words are truly appropriate:

“..you will see the invisible, hear the unspoken, smell the odorless, taste the uneaten, and touch the intangible. Those are the sights, the sounds, the fragrance, the taste, a life in which heaven and earth are joined and humanity and divinity touch.”

“I feel as if I have dropped into my own life and it fits”.

So do I…
