Amazing! Somehow, in all this, I actually have come through this dark night. I really didn't know if I would ever end up feeling the presence of God again. Can't say that I do like I did, but I do, now, differently. From what my spiritual mentors have said: this will happen again, perhaps, even more profoundly than this. Oh joy (said with sarcasm).
God is deeply real to me, even closer than my own breath. It's almost as if God is so real that I don't really need to feel him. He simply IS.
