Part three of 4 parts. The end is just around the corner.

I LIFTED MY HANDS ABOVE MY HEAD.
LOOKED INTO THE HEAVENS
AND THANKED MY CREATOR.
AS I WAS LOOKING INTO THE HEAVENS.
I NOTICED SOMETHING, 
DOESN'T LOOK RIGHT.
I REALLY HAD TO THINK ABOUT THIS.
I LAID DOWN ON THE ROAD 
CREATED OF GEM STONES.
I CROSSED MY ANKLES
INTERLOCKED MY FINGERS AND
PLACED MY HANDS BEHIND MY HEAD.
I...WAS LOOKING OUT...INTO THE 
HEAVENS.
I...WAS AT THE CENTER.

IT APPEARS THE HEAVENS ARE 
MULTI DIMENSIONAL.
THOSE STARS, MOONS, OBJECTS
REFLECTING STARLIGHT, 
SUNLIGHT, ENERGY BEFORE MY EYES.
ARE NOT EVEN CLOSE 
TO ONE ANOTHER.
I COULD SEE BETWEEN THE STARS,
AROUND THE STARS,
AND THROUGH THESE CREATIONS.

THERE IS NO SUCH THING 
AS EMPTY SPACE.
IT'S SO FULL IT'S COMPACT.
THE WORD PHENOMENON 
CAME TO MIND.
NOT ONLY DID THE WORD COME TO
MIND. IT WAS IN FRONT OF MY EYES.
IT CAME TOWARDS ME AND 
ENTERED MY HEAD.
DID THAT JUST HAPPEN?
DID I JUST ABSORB THAT?
THE WORD METAPHYSICS APPEARED
AND DID THE SAME THING.
I COULD SEE AN OBJECT, PLANET OR
STAR HEADED IN MY DIRECTION.
THE CLOSER IT CAME
I COULD SEE IT WASN'T.
IT WAS THE WORD ESOTERIC.
AGAIN, IT WAS THE WORD 
PHILOSOPHY, INCARNATION, WISDOM,
ONTOLOGY,RAPTURE, EUPHORIA,
AVATAR,EPISTEMOLOGY, BLISS,
ELATION, COSMOLOGY, NATURE, JOY,
TRANSCENDENTAL, SPIRITUALISM,
MILLIONS OF WORDS 
FROM EVERY DIRECTION.
I WAS BOMBARDED 
WITH A UNIVERSE OF VOCABULARY.
I WAS WASHED AWAY 
BY A TSUNAMI OF KNOWLEDGE 
AND UNDERSTANDING.

I OPENED MY EYES.
I WAS STILL LAYING ON MY BACK.
MY HANDS BEHIND MY HEAD.
FINGERS INTERLOCKED.
ANKLES CROSSED.
I REALIZED MY BODY SIMULATED 
INFINITY SYMBOL.
THE HEAVENS NO LONGER APPEARED
TO BE MULTI DIMENSIONAL.
I ROLLED MY SELF ON TO MY SIDE
AND ATTEMPTED, TO MAKE MY WAY
BACK ONTO MY FEET.

THE STONES WERE POLISHED.
ALL THE STONES SEEMED POLISHED.
I SHOVED MY HAND INTO THE ROAD.
I RETRIEVED A FEW STONES
FROM BELOW THE SURFACE.
THEY TOO, WERE POLISHED.
THE INNER BEAUTY WAS 
EASILY VISIBLE.
MAGNIFICENT COLORS, 
FLAWLESS GEMS. WORKS OF ART.
THEY WERE SO SMOOTH,
ALMOST OILY TO THE TOUCH.

I WAS HOLDING BETWEEN MY THUMB
AND FOREFINGER, 
THE RARELY SEEN 
RUBY STAR SAPPHIRE.
THIS PARTICULAR SAPPHIRE 
WAS ABOUT 5 KARATS IN SIZE.
PERFECTLY ROUND.
DEEP REDS AND PINKS COLORS.
INCREDIBLY ASTOUNDING.
I RELEASED THE OTHERS.
I HELD THIS INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL
STONE IN THE PALM OF MY HAND.
I COULDN'T STOP LOOKING AT IT.
I WAS FASCINATED, MESMERIZED.
I WAS SO FOCUSED ON THE DETAILS,
IT APPEARED TO GROW.
IT WAS 3 FEET IN DIAMETER.
I COULDN'T BELIEVE MY FOCUS
COULD BE SO STRONG.
ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC.
I WAS BEGINNING THE UNDERSTAND
THE SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE.

THE POLISHED STONES SEEMED TO 
ILLUMINATE THE ROAD BEFORE ME.
I TURNED AROUND TO LOOK BACK
AT THE ROAD BEHIND ME.
IT WAS COVER WITH MIST.
BLUE ON THE BOTTOM,
LAYERED WITH YELLOW
BETWEEN A BLUEISH GREEN LAYER
TOPPED WITH WHAT LOOKED LIKE
BLUE AND YELLOW FLAMES OF MIST.

HOW STRANGE IS THAT.
I THOUGHT TO MY SELF.
THIS IS SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT.
A MATHEMATICAL EQUATION?
AN ESOTERIC MESSAGE LEFT BEHIND?
BLUE IS THE COLOR OF CALM.
YELLOW IS THE COLOR OF INTELLECT.
WHEN UNIFIED CREATE GREEN.
GREEN IS THE COLOR OF ENVY.
AND INDEPENDENT AT THE SAME TIME?
I CONTINUED MY JOURNEY ON WHAT
NOW APPEARS TO BE A ROAD OF
ENCHANTMENT.
FREQUENCIES OF EVERY COLOR
LIGHTING THE WAY.
