Type of Spiritual Experience

Background

A description of the experience

Walt Whitman – Leaves of Grass

Houses and rooms are full of perfumes … the shelves are crowded with perfumes
I breathe the fragrance myself, and know it and like it,
The distillation would intoxicate me also, but I shall not let it
…..
The smoke of my own breath
Echoes, ripples, buzzed whispers... loveroot, silkthread, crotch and vine
My respiration and inspiration

The source of the experience

Whitman, Walt
