Early yesterday morning, I had a strange and vivid dream, which I would like to share with you:
I’m sinking deep into my self, towards a small, intense, single cell of white light. It has a clearly outlined border, and a dark nucleus. I watch it slowly moving and changing shape, rather like an amoeba. It is alive.
As I descend towards it, I begin to realise that this light is far larger and brighter than it seemed at first. I plunge into it. The light surrounds and inundates me completely. Instantly, I lose all sight and sense of it having any boundaries at all. It is limitless.
Then I understand that this light is God. There is no separation between it and myself, other people, animals, creation, the living, the dead, past, present, or future. Rather, all things are the infinite, incomprehensible oneness of God, who is, “Over all, in all, and living through all”.
Then I woke up, daylight streaming into my room. Later, whilst I was dressing, it came into my mind that no matter what happens, I am healed.
Afterwards, I wrote down everything I had seen, experienced and understood, feeling stunned, awed, humbled, and utterly silenced.
Friends, I have always known that one day the prayers God gives me would come to an end. It may be that I have reached that point, but I simply don’t know yet. Time will tell.
God is light (1 John 1:5; NLT).
No power in the sky above or in the earth below – indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 8:39; NLT).
How great is God – beyond our understanding (Job 36:26; NIV).
There is […] one God and Father, who is over all and in all and living through all (Ephesians 4:5-6; NLT).
O Lord, please leave me – I’m too much of a sinner to be around you (Luke 5:8; NLT).
