Background

A description of the experience

Robert Bridges – from Sonnets The Growth of Love

 
All earthly beauty hath one cause and proof
To lead the pilgrim soul to beauty above;
Yet lieth the greater bliss so far aloof,
That few there be are weaned from earthly love
Joy's ladder it is, reaching from home to home
The best of all the work that all was good;
Where of 'twas writ the angels aye upclomb
Down sped, and at the top the Lord God stood
