A description of the experience

William Blake – from the Complete Poems

For all are men in eternity; rivers, mountains, cities, villages,

All are human and when you enter into their bosom you bear your heaven

And earth and all you behold, tho’ it appears without it is within

In your imagination of which this world of mortality is but a shadow

The source of the experience

Blake, William
