This is the central insight of my life, based on a direct experience. It happened at the conclusion of a year-long quest (read more).
On January 28 1999, there was an Awakening. I could say “I had an awakening”, but that would miss the point: the “I” merged with everything else, and revealed the oneness of all there is. It felt more real than anything else, as if touching ultimate reality, our original Being and natural home: A place where space and time break down and all is merged. You are merging with God, or All-That-Is. There still is a sense of self, but it is part of all else, and all else is part of my self.
I can say without a doubt, having experienced it, we are much more than this body. We are all divine
My life since then has been about trying to explain that moment.
In subsequent years I studied eastern and western philosophies and religions, mysticism, as well as quantum physics to gain insights into this. I learned that what was experienced, some call nirvana (Buddhism) or moksha (Hinduism), the Tao, the net of Indra, the Samadhi of the ocean mirror (Hua-Yen Buddhism), becoming one with the Godhead (Christian), or the holographic universe (science).
Namaste — I bow to you and the Divine in you.
