In the depths of pure mind I dwelt, awaiting the call of the spirit, waiting for the revelation that is due to me. I transcended my physical needs.
I hardly knew where I was. My body was in the pagoda in the garden of the meditation centre, but the person usually within it seemed to be at some great distance.
I was floating at the centre of my being. I soared beyond the flesh. I inspected every atom.
