“I SUDDENLY ENTERED THE HEART OF REALITY”

Eugene Ionesco (1909 – 1994), the great Romanian/French playwright and dramatist, described his experience of the Transcendent in words that echo in their simplicity and grandeur the words of great men and women throughout time who have been graced with a similar experience.

“I suddenly entered the heart of a reality

so blindingly obvious, so total, so enlightening,

so luminous, that I wondered how I had never

before realized how easy this reality was to find

and how easily I found myself in it . . .

This state of supernormal wakefulness could set

the world ablaze, transfigure it, illuminate it.”

—Ionesco
