- Experiencing colour during meditation.
Experiencing colour during meditation. Easter Sunday 2016
It sometimes happens, in the course of meditation, that colours appear from within, red, green, blue, swirling and changing, that are more vivid than stained glass windows, more fresh and more glorious than the colours of a Van Gogh. The colours of artists or landscapes are from outside; these colours are from inside and have a beauty that is incomparable. Sometimes, surprisingly, the colour is black, an intense black not found in a darkened room, intensely beautiful, one could almost say luminous.
These effects occur spontaneously, in great peace, with a sense of energy, in the divine Presence.
Is the reason for this that the colour receptors in the eye, which normally respond to stimulus from outside, are being awakened not by material cuases but by grace? Are they inspired colours, sourced from the depths of the soul and the realm of faith?
The possibilities suggested by these appearances of colour are mind-boggling. Are they a foretaste of the transfiguration when all the dormant capacities are brought into action? Is my meditation a beginning of transfiguration?
