A Flood of Knowing, A Loss of Sin

Mystical Experiencer:  Male in early eighties
Current location:  U.S.A.
Age at time of experience:  24

My illumination was almost instantaneous, but that was only the beginning of a long series of enlightening experiences. Thirty eight of the most significant ones have been documented in poetry or verse. The illumination made me receptive to the thoughts and emotions of people around me.

Here is the poem that tells of the first experience.

It wasn't long
Just a second or two
that was enough
To  be created anew
A flash of light
a rush of wind
A flood of knowing
A loss of sin 
Gone was fear
Of both life and death
In  its place
A heavenly rest
Back into the world
To carry the word
Pushed on by desire
To share, be heard
But how? How?
My language fails
Alone I stand At infinity's rails
