Fifty years ago, Dr. Janet Smith Warfield had a mystical experience. It wasn’t something she was trying to have. She didn’t even know what it was. She just knew she had experienced a sudden understanding and clarity.
Nothing outside her changed. All that changed was her understanding of her external world. Suddenly, she was looking at everything through new eyes.
She had to tell others. No one understood. How could she use divisive, analytical words to communicate a unifying, holistic experience? It was like trying to use a screwdriver to hammer a nail.
