I try to imagine being Jesus meeting the Christ in his innermost being, just try to imagine that...was it a mighty revolution, a sweet conference, a divine conjunctio?

NOVALIS  a new Sun Rises Hymns to the Night

Though in conversation he delighted most to unfold the deeps of the soul, and spoke as inspired of the regions of invisible worlds, yet he was mirthful as a child; would jest in artless gaiety, and heartily concede to the jestings of his company. Without vanity, without learned haughtiness, far from any affectation and hypocrisy, he was a genuine, true man, the purest and loftiest embodiment of a high immortal spirit.
