A vision*

From the June 4, 2012 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


I caught a glimpse
    of what John saw— 

       A reality in which I was not
           pulled by what I’d rather be doing
       Nor pushed by what I had to do. 

I had no fear.
I had no desires—all needs were met.
I wasn’t anxious, nervous, 
           or self-aware.
I felt peace and calm 
           and pure individuality.

       No one was out of reach.
       I had no questions.

The vision was a powerful flash
           that stayed with me. 

Was this a time yet to come? 

No. 

It is a present possibility.

—Christie Hanzlik
