“It’s a liquid?”

“Well, I’d say it’s a kind of liquid”


“Because it’s warm and flows?”

“And rises?”

“Yes. Rises like a warm liquid rises.”

“Could it not be a gas?”

“I don’t think so…”

“Why not?”

Because is doesn’t feel like a gas flows, it feels like a liquid flows.”

“I agree. Though I’m not sure we have the proof for that.”

“But we can agree it’s not a solid.”

“Exactly! Not like a warm rice pudding sitting happily in the stomach.”

“Must it be a solid, liquid or gas? Is there no other state that it could be in?”

“Well, there’s plasma – like the incredibly hot stuff in the sun; a kind of super-energy state of matter.”

“But we feel it, strongly, in the body at ordinary temperatures, so its nothing to do with very high temperature?”

“That’s right. It just is…”


“Yes. It’s not fuelled by anything extraordinary except an invisible sense of attraction for another.”

“Another person?”

“Usually, but not necessarily.”

“What else?”

“It can be for a profound idea – one that makes us resonate within with its effect.”

“Resonate? Sounds like this can affect a single person within themselves?”

“Most certainly – happens all the time in mystical work…”

“So… It’s a liquid, then?”

“Not really… It’s just that we don’t have a word closer than liquid to describe how it feels.”

“How about radiance?”

“Could be… funny old thing, love…”
