“There is a distinction between images seen in the ‘memory of nature’,
and the vision of actual beings now existent in the inner world.
Just as one may close one’s eyes and see a vivid picture memory
in the mind’s eye, or, one may look and see actual images with the physical eyes.
When seeing these inner beings the physical eyes may be open or shut
but if open these beings are not seen with the physical eyes.
It is comparatively easy to see while at ancient monuments
because such places are naturally charged with psychical forces
and were for that reason made use of long ago and deemed sacred.
The inner beings fall into two classes; those which shine,
and those which are opalescent and appear lit from within.
It is very difficult to intelligbly describe either class of being.
The first time I saw the shining beings I was lying on a hillside.
I was listening to the music of the air and to what seemed to be the sound of bells
and was trying to understand the aerial clashing in which each gust of wind seemed to
break upon another with an ever changing, silvery sound.
Then the space before me grew luminous
and I saw one beautiful shining being after another.
The first opalescent being I saw, there was initially just a dazzle of light,
and then I realised that this light came from the heart
of a tall figure seemingly made of air.
Throughout the transparent body ran a radiant, electrical fire
of which the heart seemed central.
Around the head and through the waving luminous hair
which was blown about the body like living strands of gold,
there appeared flaming wings like auras.
Light seemed to stream outwards from all directions
and the effect of this vision left an extraordinary lightness, and ecstatic joy, of being.”
