Cassandra is inspired to write a poem that took the form of a lengthy epic
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Dr Yvonne Kason – Farther Shores
This is from Cassandra a housewife and mother:
Since my, twenties, I have been actively involved in my own spiritual journey. It began when I took a course in meditation in which I had a mystical vision. That abruptly changed my life. I began to practice meditation, prayer, and self-reflection regularly.
Soon the pursuit of spiritual understanding became the main focus of my life. Eventually I began to do yoga and martial arts. I steadfastly continued my meditation and spiritual practices for years, without feeling that I had any further spiritual experiences.
When I was in my late thirties, however, I developed strong kundalini symptoms: heat, piercing back pain energy rushes, and sometimes I went into spontaneous yoga postures. I suddenly developed an over-whelming urge to write poetry. I found that rhyming couplets relating to spiritual themes would float into my consciousness. As I wrote them down, more and more would flow into my mind. Eventually a poem-pages in length-would take shape. Sometimes the process of producing a poem occurred rapidly; at other times parts of the poem would come to me over several weeks.
Gradually the poem took the form of a lengthy epic.
I was amazed by this development. I had never thought of myself as a person who had any ability as a poet.
