MYSTIC EMPYREAN

***

No space and no time

All wishes are good, fulfilled,

Perfect, ripe, and whole

***

NOTE: The Mystic Empyrean is the dwelling place of God. The concepts of space and time do not apply there, although we sometimes metaphorically use space and time words (such as “there”) when talking of the Mystic Empyrean. The Mystic Empyrean is a place where souls are perfected and so all wishes are good, perfect, ripe, and whole — and fulfilled.
