Source : From Within I Rise: Spiritual Triumph Over Death and Conscious Encounters with "The Divine Presence"
2. “I believe, if there is some sort of higher power, the universe is it. Whenever religious people ask me where the universe came from, I tell them that it has always been here, and was never created. The Big Bang theory is based on the fact that the universe is expanding right now. And if you rewind the tape, the universe appears to be shrinking. If you rewind the tape far enough, eventually the universe must be just one singular point. Or so the theory goes. But what if the universe has not always been expanding? What if it's pulsating, and one pulse takes trillions of years, and right now the universe is inhaling, and before that, trillions of years ago, it was exhaling?”
3. “I inhale and a zephyr enters my body. The earth tilts its axis, changing my view of the heavens. Two clouds appear in the shape of trumpets. They part and rays of sunlight burst in. The sunlight speaks, 'Seek a new experience.”
4. “Even when I write about this swanand that orchid,I write about you.Every wordof every line is for you.I have drunk youyet you have consumed me.Seeping through every cellfrom crown to root,you took over heart,mind,and lungs so that every breath I expelleaves a trail of you in the air—the same air that I inhale.I no longer know myself separate from you.But how I long to be with the source!”
