A description of the experience
The Bridge over the River
Be silent, for your silence is akin to outspread wings, under whose protection I scatter shining blossoms into your hands. They may not wilt, nor may frost carelessly destroy their splendour.
Their pollen will be carried upward by your faith to a sanctuary that everyone harbours as a core in his being.
There, in your flower garden, the most glorious blossoms will unfold.
The seeds of these plants only you are allowed to entrust to the effervescent children of spring when the time has come.
Struggle for your equanimity, for the peace in you, so no storm or frost will destroy your little garden.
