But then there’s a shift; slight at first – a moment of distance, of perspective. And something changes, subtly, in my body; the strain goes out of my eyes. I survey this landscape afresh. What are the days like now? Still hot and arid. What are the nights like? Impossibly hostile and crawling with who-knows-what. I notice being a little disappointed to see that it’s all still this way, but that’s just the part of me that hasn’t stopped thinking all this is about Me. And then at once, for a moment – longer if I have the will to freedom – there is no danger. There is no wilderness. There is no I. There is only God, and Love’s only rival is wonder in the immensity of it.
