“The Glory”

“One had always felt certain that this hidden Glory existed, even though one’s senses had never been able to perceive it until now. One had sensed the Wonder hidden behind the muck and the murk, the rust and the rivets of the everyday world. But now to actually see It in all Its Splendor! What profound satisfaction there is in coming face to face with All that one had for so long yearned to behold. This world is as fresh as a new morning’s snowfall; no imprints of the world’s misery have left their mark. It is as crisp as the autumn air blown through the plains. This world is as sweet-smelling as a baby’s head and as soft as its tendrils of hair. It seems to have just awoken or just been born: newness brightens its every aspect. What one is witnessing is the revelation of the world’s Soul, its Essence, its Spirit. As the beloved is no longer a mere body, but a soul perceived in all its beauty, so the world has peeled back its obscuring integument to reveal its true underlying Glory.”
