I emerge --
light overwhelms me
with peacefulness

A welcome comes to mind, although
I have heard no words spoken.
How long did I sleep?  
A voice -- a million years.
I seek a presence and the angel appears.
Although the mist reveals
our nakedness, I think no sexuality.
You wonder about your wife.
Yes, the thought emerges as well as the answer.
Recognition will come in time.
When you want to see her, you will --
as well as the rest of your family if you wish.
The stranger said for me to relax and think.
Think about the good times and the times
I knew that she suffered pain, 
to be a complete wife and mother.
She will come to you, 
not through her own accord. 
She will want it with all of her longing, but
she will be here only for your happiness, 
only because you wish it.
Likewise if need be, you will be there for hers. 
Here we all exist in a multiple dimension.
Splitting—multiplying if needs be.
It changes depending on our wants and needs.
However, you will never want anything 
that you cannot have and you will always provide 
what anyone else wants of you, simultaneously.
You can split your dimension into a thousand parts—
a million parts, and even then you will have not begun 
to exhaust the possibilities which exist.  
God is here making all this possible.
God is inside of you for God makes up your being.
In a sense you are God 
but you will never want to be greater, than you are now.
What this means is that no matter how
many wish you to be with them, 
you will be with them all, at the same time.  
No matter how many you wish to be with you, 
they will all be here with you, 
individually or as many as you wish.  
Even while you are elsewhere they will all visit 
with you in the way they remember you,
and in the way you remember them.
All of you will gather all of these memories. 
They will embellish your love for one another.
You will savor them forever, making you complete.
