A description of the experience

from Letters

In my fantasy I was one of the Children of Light in some ancestral paradise and it was rumoured to us that there were Children of Darkness and the thought of them was fearful and abhorrent to us.

But I, in my imagination had wandered far outside the circle of light into a wilderness of space and far from that paradise, I became aware of a dark presence beside me and I trembled because I knew it was one of the Children of Darkness. 

But this being whispered gently to me, ‘We of the Darkness are more ancient than you of the Light’ and , at the saying of that, I forsook my allegiance to the Light and my whole being yearned to lose itself in that Divine Darkness.
