Resurrection by Matthias Gruenewald, Isenheim Altarpiece, 16th Century
As I was walking towards the olive grove on a warm July evening I suddenly stopped as a whole sweep of life engulfed me, and at 11 years or age I had what is now called a mystical experience. I did not talk about it for the following 65 years.
How could an 11 year old child say to adults that it had had a transcendant experience and be taken seriously. The child knew that no one would believe it and kept silent about most of it for 25 years, only to divulge the complete received message 40 years later.
