123 Scattered Jewels
At dawn the doors of the angelic realm opened, and I saw oceans and a heaven of glistening jewels scattered over my head.
I saw God (glory be to him) as though he were scattering those jewels over me from that world.
He displayed the form of satisfaction, as majesty and beauty. A dense light shone from him like those jewels.
When certain graces and kindnesses occurred, and time passed, I saw that heaven rolled out on the face of the earth.
I saw all the prophets, saints, and angels, and the Truth (glory be to him) manifested himself to me from among them.
He said things to me that I heard, words of the station of intimacy and expansiveness, and of his longing for me and his passion and love for me.
