Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
A Woman in the Polar night – Christiane Ritter
How quiet it is here. The sun shines on a soundless scene. The magical hues of the soft shadows glow deeply.
Everything belongs together here, even the bear tracks in the deep snow, which shows with what peace of mind the animals have gone on their way. Everything breathes the same serenity. It is as though a current of the most holy and perfect peace were streaming through all the landscape.
I feel that I am close to the essence of all nature. I can see its paths interlacing and still running alongside each other in accordance with eternal laws. I divine the ultimate salvation before which all human reasoning dissolves into nothing.
