for the past few days, i have been searching for the words to describe the experience of full and total devotion to the divine.
to encapsulate the "hallelujah...thank you, jesus!" moment in words, but to the tune of ancient african spirit calls and drums.
there is a difference when, instead of calling the name, you can chant the incantations, mix the herbs, light the candles, become the aspect of god that you desire to bring into your life or the aspect that lives in you.
it is the difference between believing in god and knowing the god within.
the interconnectedness of being.
but, beyond that, i just can't seem to get the words right.
