You've searched long enough—it’s time to come home.
Enter now the prepared city; pass through the gates that open now
in this moment of reading. A window in heaven! A ladder to me!

Now is the time to pass through this world’s veil
to celestial shores, the way you’ve known it should be.
I walk with you there on streets of gold, as you are becoming:
radiant in my likeness, and altogether fragrant with presence.
