Background

A description of the experience

William Cowper from The Winter Morning Walk

 
The soul that sees him or receives sublimed
New faculties, or learns at least to employ
More worthily the powers she owned before
Discerns in all things what, with stupid gaze
Of ignorance, till then she overlooked
A ray of heavenly light, gilding all forms
Terrestrial in the vast and minute -
The unambiguous footsteps of the God
Who gives its lustre to the insect's wing
And wheels his throne upon the rolling worlds

The source of the experience

Cowper, William
