Churchill, Winston - I see the absolute truth and explanation of things
Type of Spiritual Experience
Perhaps one of the more interesting quotes I found was from the book ‘Diagnosis’ by Kenneth Walker who quotes from an account of Sir Winston Churchill, who in the Spring of 1932 had a minor operation and as a result had a visionary experience.
We cannot tell from this whether it was the anaesthetic that caused the experience or his manic depression [which itself was probably caused by his being born a premature baby] but a visionary experience is a visionary experience!
A description of the experience
The sanctum is occupied by alien powers, I see the absolute truth and explanation of things, but something is left out which upsets the whole, so by a large sweep of the mind I have to see a greater truth and a more complete explanation, which comprises the erring element.
Nevertheless, there is still something left out.
So we have to take a still wider sweep …. The process continues inexorably.
Depth beyond depth of unendurable truth opens
