But the art of "ungrasping" takes a lifetime to perfect. [/quote] I would be interested in hearing about your experiences. [quote:Anonymous Coward 9645738:MV8yMjAxMjI5XzM3Mjc2MzQ4X0Y5RjA5NUJB] Once, walking down the street when I was 4 years old I started (for some reason)saying out loud, "I'm really here! I'm really HERE!" Suddenly life became like a lucid dream. I was the Dreamer, immortal, and everywhere. It only lasted a minute or so and I tried to recapture the experience for several weeks. I finally did about 25 years later under the influence of strong drugs meditating with a friend. I was floating above my body and I felt I could make my life happen any way I wanted. Look up non-dualism, Advaita/Vedanta. [/quote] Children definatley have less ego to resist hehe. [quote:spiritwarrior7 37875454:MV8yMjAxMjI5XzM3Mjc2NjI2XzRFRDlEREQw] Yes, I had an awakening while driving home from work. It was very powerful and frightening. I cried because I did not understand at the time what was happening. Since then I have been on a journey of learning. That is why we are here. To grow, and share of ourselves. Meditative prayer will allow connection to the ONE that we are all a part of, come from. and shall return to. Amen. [/quote] It really sends you on a journey doesn't it? I was thrown crazily into my journey. I feel removed from it now though. I need to get back to it. [/quote]
I know a lot of people seek this state, but you don't see a lot of personal accounts. I can say I've glimpsed this state, only to be sucked back into some emotional drama that I begin to identify with and find myself adrift in ego land. I recently had a very difficult heart breaking breakup that GLP helped me with, and it has lead me back into serious meditation and seeking God as my primary goal. It's funny how it takes being brought down so low before we make this a priority. But that is the ego I guess.
So any stories to share? What types of meditation or spiritual practice do you use to seek God/enlightenment? Have you reached this?
