At One with the Universe and Pure Being: Muggeridge

Malcolm Muggeridge describes a mystical experience he had in the late 1930s:

“The first intimation is, quite simply that time stops, or rather one escapes from time. Then all creation is seen in its oneness; with each part of it, from the tiniest insect or blade of grass, to the vastnesses of space, with its stars and comets riding through them, visibly related to every other part. One sublime harmony, with no place for the discordances of hatred and the ego’s shrill demands, the death of death, since each note in the harmony exists harmoniously for ever.. Peace that is no one else’s strife, sufficiency that is no one else’s famine, well-being that is no one else’s sickness. Flesh still, leaving the soul free to experience the inconceivable joy of seeing beyond the Iron Gates, to where the Creator watches over his creation” [Chronicles of Wasted Time, vol 2, p. 68 ].
