“So I went inward and became stronger.
I followed the path of my soul
into the bowels of my creation.
And suddently I felt light returning to my mind,
as if the light was emanating from deep within me,
and it was!
I opened to receive it, and it shone upon me the way
a child joyfully welcomes one back from a long journey.
There was a child inside there,
and discovery, and joy!
And all the things which I had sought outside myself!
There was a pulsing and a deepening–
an invitation, and I accepted.
I went forward
catching my breath,
and the welcome remained.
There was no withdrawal
as I went nearer.
I expanded more, reaching within,
and rather than less,
there was more
I did not end,
I was not hollow,
I was not empty.
I was full
