I‘d come back from a bike ride and jumped into the shower. As soon as the water hit me I felt like I was being washed clean—more than physically clean. My immediate reaction was to sit down in the tub with the water pouring down over my head, and I spontaneously started chanting with all this water going over me. I must have been in there for an hour, and I felt like I was being reborn, and also being washed clean of my own birth, so that I felt as though I was giving birth to myself—as though I’d washed away my parents, and my physical birth, and that I was now doing it out of myself—being the father and the mother and the son, if that makes sense.
