What happened began back in 1983 while standing at a bus stop with my Mom. We were waiting, standing and all of the sudden it was as if I was
violently and rapidly forced sideways in every way possible.
When it ended after only a few short seconds, it was if I had some form of tunnel sense, a rare form of calm if you may, intense clarity and peaceful
I looked stunned over at my Mom and after a moment or two simply asked her "what was that?, what just happened?"
She was unaware of anything having changed or that was different.
This was the first conscious time I had some supernatural occurrence that defied all logic or reason.
Again perhaps 6 months later it happened again only this time I was traveling with a group of Girlfriends to see an Enlightened Master Speak.
As we entered within the boundaries of the Buddhafield, it happened again, this time I was seated in the front seat and there was a profound moment of
inner stillness and a point where eternity penetrated time.
Again the sensation of being cast sideways towards my right and flipped suddenly. This time unlike at the bus stop, I found myself as a point within
eternity itself, a boundless vacuum of existence itself.
A reddened/golden sky of energy and sound, moving with no beginning or end. Clouds of eternity so profound in their truth and isness.
Only witnessing and yet an intricate part of the whole existed, no form, no conscious thought as we know intellectually. Instinct, awareness within
Then like a flash of golden color everything back where it started. Only silence.
Utter and complete silence, bliss beyond imagination.
Sitting now in the quiet car rolling into a small little town, we stop for gas and a bathroom break. Again like in a bubble I look to my friends to
discover that all they knew was a high spiritual sense of peace, nothing else, again I was alone in this most generous gift from existence itself.
Walking was as if for the first time in fact everything was if for the first time, fresh and new. Not unknown but with the fullest fragrance of a
mature rose flower, innocence and vulnerability in conjunction with strength and fulfillment. Yes like the Strength of a Rose as a dear friend once
wrote in a song.
And like the rose, passed by unseen in the deep forest, and yet with this level of awareness the fragrance shared by all of eternity, no past, no
future only one moment, one fragment of timelessness.
Sensing everything all at once, I could look at any one person and know everything about them or their ancestors if I chose to look on, it did not
matter because in that moment 'seeing' others was like an illusion or a misuse of respect. Finding I could know anything, I chose not to, but
instead remained in my body and the witnessing presence which did not need words or thought to exist fully.
This state lasted for three days and many personal miracles were shared, but they were part of the inner temple and not really to be share right here
Getting to the point where the experience happened was a few years down the road. If you wish I will tell you about it, just know that it would take a
leap of faith to accept, I did without question and have always known that it will happen.
