But now when I share about the experience, it would turn out to be an absolute insanity. But that’s how it was; fresh and lively.
I had the indistinct vision and was unable to concentrate on something. I had no idea where I was, I was steadily walking down the alleys and that’s the only conscious act I remember. What was “self” in my pre-conceived mind was just everywhere. The very passage I was walking on, the air that I was breathing, the atmosphere around me – everything had just become “self.” For the very first time in my life, I had an experience of being a part of this Cosmos. And for the first time in my life, I got to experience the sharing of my perpetual energy with the universe.
Each and every spine of my body was jam-packed with a new yet unutterable intensity of bliss. I had no word for this, I did not know what to say; I did not know what was happening with me. The experience was completely unique and fresh one. I asked myself, “What’s going on with me?” The answer would be “wait and see”.
I thought this is all what the mind could answer in case of such a mystery.
I was only certain that what was happening was entirely madness, so I wanted to live moment-to-moment.
When I spoke, I listened with captivated attention. When I joked I exploded into laughter; when I questioned, I pondered. When I knocked down the predetermined philosophies and prejudices, I remained empty.
More significantly, I closed my eyes and I emerged into the silence. The silence was roaring deep down my being and struck at the core. The unspoken voice was warmly welcoming the silence.
Soaked in a unique wisdom of liberty within, I sensed a new beginning, a new beginning to questioning, a new beginning to laughter, a new beginning to my approaches and a new beginning to my life as a whole.
A new beginning to Experience!!!
Silence is the eternal freedom! Silence is the eternal freedom! I heard the repetition again and again.
I looked my watch and realized that it was just a matter of few minutes. Such precious moments within few minutes and the most valuable time of my life.
Then on, every moment became a celebration. Every judgment started being an observation. The previous understanding of life became a practical one. Life became much easier, happier and simpler than before.
Then on, I felt that I was firmly allied and bonded with the spiritual thread.
