It steals across my consciousness without warning.
My world is suddenly sheathed in golden light.
A stillness drops over my world barring any intrusion.
All life becomes wonder and magic.
It lasts a moment.
When the golden stillness dissipates.
I realize then that for that moment of eternity
I was awake.
The reverse does not hold.
I never know when I’m asleep.
Only when the next golden moment arises
Do I faintly sense that
“I” was gone. Lost. Asleep.
The good news:
The golden moments are occurring
Each time I am allowing them
To extend further
Into the Eternal Now.
