Through grace or trauma some of us are blessed with numinous experience.

Mine came in the guise of a shattering brain injury. I spent 7 years in hospital rehabilitation. I watched my life fall apart in a cascade of loss.

What saved me was a visionary experience I'd had in the ER on the night of my injury. The beauty. The luminosity. The vast expanse of love and compassion. Once experienced it can never be doubted or forgotten.

Not long ago I realized everything I have done in my life since that day has been to remember and reclaim that luminosity.

I share it with those who understand and those who need to believe.
