And when the event, the big change in your life, is simply an insightóisnít that a strange thing? That absolutely nothing changes except that you see things differently and youíre less fearful and less anxious and generally stronger as a result: isnít it amazing that a completely invisible thing in your head can feel realer than anything youíve experienced before? You see things more clearly and you know that you're seeing them more clearly. And it comes to you that this is what it means to love life, this is all anybody who talks seriously about God is ever talking about. Moments like this.
