Here’s another illumination:
Night Prayer    Douglas Gillette: 8-14-10
O God, at night when I drift down into those vast concavities where angels and demons brindle, flare, and thrive,
then out upon the void, becoming vaporous, and cease to be entirely,
guard that entity which You have breathed as me, and with Lightning and Your blinding Sword
strike through these fantasies which fog and whelm, grasp my hand, and bring me to Your Light!
