The Terror Of Ecstasy
The soul should always stand ajar, ready to welcome the ecstatic experience.
In common parlance ecstasy is fun.
But ecstasy is not fun.
Your very soul is seized and shaken until it tingles.
To live fully is to live with an awareness of the rumble of terror that underlies everything.
I think, that if I touched the earth, It would crumble;
It is so sad and beautiful,
So tremulously like a dream.
How long will this last,
this delicious feeling of being alive,
of having penetrated the veil which hides beauty and the wonders of celestial vistas
Sunset in the ethereal waves:
I cannot tell if the day has ended,
or the world
Or if the secret of secret is inside me again.
