2001 - Driving my car, on a road trip I stopped to sit quietly at a secluded beach cove
surrounded by sea cliffs in Big Sur, California. 20 minutes later suddenly I awakened
and was bound to surrender to this profound expansion of consciousness. The house of
cards called separate reality collapsed - the bottom fell out of the paradigm of
individuality. This dissolution of a “somebody” was unpredictable and beyond
description. My essence expanded leaving my motionless corpse-like body
encompassing my surroundings.
My physical form and sense of identity vanished and
everything became outside of space and time revealing the extraordinary in the
ordinary. Oneness with everything, an exuberant awareness and an overflowing of love
permeated everything. With this came comprehension of the totality, omniscience. This
occurred in a flash and felt eternal.
