My soul centers me as a yoke centers an egg and when the shell cracks, it is then that my sinew, my life force oozes out. It runs into streams, it emits vapors into the air, it floats away into the atmosphere. I feel it gliding into the stale air of the room and then continuing into the mist and freshness of the stratosphere…into the first galaxy, the second galaxy, the third galaxy – on and on and on beyond infinity —into the loving arms of God from whence it came. I’m finally HOME. I’m finally FREE. I have no pain. I have no fear. I have no flesh. I have no wants nor needs. I have completed my MISSION and NOW…I await the next.
