We float in space, without concept of reality and time, without limits or borders, and without human contact. We float alone in a vast array of colors beaming from the stars and lights God has spilled into the sky. We squint and beams of light fire from all angles and directions. We know no one, we care for ourselves and the existence of our minds, our only asset. We are lost. We are empty as we have left those who love us.

Until we reach the orbit of paradise. The pull drags us into it and we are powerless to stop it. We cannot resist this light of blue, white, and brown. Inside love still reigns even when all seems lost. Inside there is warmth and beauty. Inside holds God's most beloved Creation. Mankind. A strong and resilient child whose innocence was lost, but found again through a peasant King.

We are drawn to it's splendor and move into it's atmosphere. We enter into the light whose heat burns brighter than the morning sun, ripping apart our clothes, our eyes, our hair, everything. We enter into it naked and again unashamed and unblemished. We cringe as the heat pulls back our outer layers, the pain is devastating, but we can see the ocean on the other side. We enter in and experience perfection and real joy and for the first time, we live in peace. We smile a lot. We clap our hands because we cannot keep from doing so. We were so tired from the trip, but are revived in spirit. We are free.
