Searing bright endearing light
enraptures me with glee.
That nothingness could be so right
is a paradox to me!
Dissolving of the Ego’s spell
has made me see at last.
To think that it works so well,
this indifference to my past.
Unity with the source of life
absolves me from my sins
and delivers me from strife, it does.
That goofy Guy Upstairs just grins!
