Tennyson, Alfred Lord - All at once
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
All at once, as it were, out of the intensity of the conscious of individuality, the individuality itself seemed to dissolve and fade away into boundless being: and this is not a confused state, but the clearest of the clearest, the surest of the surest, the weirdest of the weirdest, utterly beyond word – where death was an almost laughable impossibility – the loss of personality [if so it were] seemed no extinction, but the only one true life.
I am ashamed of my own feeble description.
