3rd Place ‘Epiphanic Bliss’ by Scott Thomas Outlar
Randomly throughout the day the images splash from seemingly out of nowhere, flooding her wandering mind with tiny shots of electric lightning from the source that explosively fire neurons, triggering the Revelation Fever to come over her consciousness with higher forms of dancing truths… …buzzing in the indefinable spaces of unrealized perception until the wellspring rises to smash through boundary limitations, push envelopes to the point of tearing, and careen the mind across canyons that once seemed too far for traversing.
The distance becomes shorter with each flash point epiphany which streaks like a star across the infinite sky of her mind’s eye, opening possibilities without horizon by ripping the lid off Pandora’s box.
The tidal wave of enlightenment shutters through adrenals, shocking the nervous system, spiking the Kundalini, and popping open the pineal gland into fifth dimensional awareness where it tunes in with the wavelength of The Word made manfiest, causing genesis vibrations to bring the frequency of chaos back in rhythm with perfectly ordered alignment.
Smooth sailing in dreams for the Goddess as shamanic visions carry her along the primordial river, back past the Garden of Eden, beyond all Good and Evil, to the original place of creation where the organic expansiveness of the Big Bang becomes momentarily implosive with a deep meditative inhalation, only to once more burst forth from out the entropic compression into the vastness of new beginnings.
