A description of the experience

T S Eliot – The Dry Salvages

 The hint half guessed, the gift half understood, is Incarnation
Here the impossible union
Of spheres of existence is actual
Here the past and future
Are conquered and reconciled
Where action were otherwise movement
Of that which is only moved
And has in it no source of movement -
Driven by daemonic, chthonic
Powers.  And right action is freedom
From past and future also

The source of the experience

Eliot, T S
