break.. it takes months and YEARS of meditation to truly reach what you are looking for.
But it's not like you don't learn anything on the way.. you are constantly realizing new things, nature will seem brand new, you will look at
people, plants, insects, in an entirely new way.. You are one with the earth and the earth is one with you. That is all.
Ahh so true. Once I was spiritually awoken I was putting things together in my head it seemed like a million miles a second it was incredible. That
'grace' period dies down though and you need to stick it out to keep learning - but it is entirely worth it because of course this is your life &
soul after all!
And yes, you will not learn everything in a day, a week, month, year. It may take a lifetime, or several. The point is to always shoot for the
stars, if you only make it half way, so be it, but the fact is you kept going and never gave up. This analogy applies to spirituality completely,
always keep up with your awareness and it will always keep up with you. You just need to find it!
And the part about how you said you will see things different... you hit that spot on! Once I was spiritually awoken I did see everything different.
Now when I see a bug, for example, I don't kill it (although I never was fond of killing any living creature before my spiritual awakening either),
I'll pick it up with something and set it free into the wild once again. When I look outside at nature, even through a window, during a storm or
after it has rained, all I see is beauty and it is a wondrous site. I never looked at things in such a way unless I was on some sort of psychedelic -
but now I can see these things naturally which is awesome.
A lot of other things come with spirituality as well, it almost is like you grow new senses, or more so you realize you have more senses then you ever
knew you had and you start to develop them. For me I have a more heightened awareness for danger it seems; I've felt something horrible approaching
before the last few big earthquakes right up until they happened and the feeling got stronger as it got closer to the actual earthquake. In fact, I
was talking to a friend online via AIM about how I was feeling like something bad was going to happen and that the feeling was growing stronger by the
day - well actually during that chat the earthquake in Chile happened. How weird is that? You may chalk these things up as coincidence but once you
actually experience things like this, and they happen very rapidly you will realize it's more than your imagination, it's your inner/higher self
telling you things, making you recognize things and put together the puzzles of life in seemingly short bursts. But once you start putting together
the pieces a picture emerges and it is wondrous as well.
I hope all people experience the things I have, and much much more! Life is beautiful and it's even more beautiful when you are out of body and able
to see places you never knew existed nor could explain in words even if you wanted too
