I lay in blackness; heart once a rhythm of natural movement, stillness without voices. Yet I hear something, a rustling perhaps. There it is again, something shuffling along --- a kind of feathery sound. Could it be, no, it couldn’t. Then, without fanfare nor further delay a mighty wind came racing through my mind.
It gathers in ascending speeds until it reaches the crescendo of an awesome roaring, and I sit up with babbling lips. On earth they call it “Tongues.” In Heaven it is “Resurrection.”
“Open your eyes,” a kingly voice suggests. And I do. Not because it is a command, nor a threat wrapped in words. It is simply a suggestion, which blankets me in a shawl of protection. I desperately wish to respond but am unable to form words. I attempt a grunt of determination; still nothing comes forward in the air surrounding.
A whisper of an idea enters my heart, moves to my brain and thoughts pour as if emptying into a bowl at thanksgiving, “Oh, Creator of all,” a pattern of brain activity responds.
From that moment I knew it was unnecessary to speak words, but to think as an array of beautiful colors with ideas flowing in harmony. I stood up, joining other bursts of energy as they flickered but a moment then disappeared into a chasm of distance.
