ANGELA:  I felt the pulsing of the vein in my neck, I felt the pulse and the heartbeat and suddenly recognized that I had a body.  For the first time from the matter arose the soul.  It was the first time that I was one.  One and grateful.  I possessed myself.  The spirit possessed the body, the body throbbed with spirit.  As if outside myself, I looked at me and saw me.  I was a a happy woman.  So rich that I no longer even needed to live.  I was living for free.
