Taking our T-shirts off, we lay against the warm rock and felt it tickle our backs while the sun beamed on our proud chests. We did not understand at the time that we were resting in the hand of God. Shutting my eyes to let the sun massage my eye sockets, time no longer had any meaning, and I felt like I was suspended in the warm, embracing air. This was my second Transcendent Summit.
