It's been a long time since I've been on ATS, and I am posting now because of something that has always bothered me, and I cannot find an
explanation. So, I'm hoping that here of all places I may find an answer, or at least someone else with the same "quirk". If this isn't some
metaphysical existential stuff, then I don't know what is. Here's the deal: I am put into a quasi trance everytime I see light shine through a
certain color, which is Cobalt blue. The color in mention is generally only found in glassware, and when light shines through, I am drawn to it like a
moth to a flame and have no freewill in the matter. It's more than just an affinity. It seems like instinct on a reptilian brain level. I can't help
but stare, like I'm being hypnotized. Everything around me will get darker and my eyes feel like my pupils dilate as if no light were around at all.
My mind will drop all thoughts. My face will go blank and my hearing will dim a bit. It's like I am looking at the secret of existence or the face of
God. It makes me feel as if I know the answer to something great, but my brain cannot remember. Nothing else will matter.I always feel at peace
afterwards and my depression and anxiety (PTSD) will stay away for awhile. It feels like the inner peace people seek their whole life, but it last
only for moments. I feel pure love. If I were to die in one those moments, it would be the best way to go. That is the best I can do to describe it.
It's much more intense than I can ever convey. I've had this phenomenon happening for as long as I can remember (I'm 30) but I am yet to find
anyone who understands. If you have any idea what this means or you have experienced anything like this, please let me know. Any thoughts are better
than none. I've studied almost any religion/spirtual philosophy you can think of, and nothing seems to match even halfway to what this is.
