What is it like to be in a kind of “fusion” of hearts with Jesus Christ? Life is definitely more intense, beautiful, mysterious and wondrous than ever before. It is somewhat like having a second childhood, seeing the old through new, not only more youthful but possibly ageless eyes. I seek to live each day to the full, open and unafraid. I refuse to put on “character armor” ever again. I feel the events of daily life more intensely, from sun rises to birds feeding at my bird-feeder, from the constant presentation of humanity’s joys and griefs, trials and tribulations. These are indeed the best and the worst of times.
