Almost every person feels that their life is lacking in some way, although they are seldom able to define it. There always seems to be something missing. True mystics feel 'wholeness' often. It is not a temporary absorption in divine union. Rather, it is identifying with the divine essence everywhere. Living, for them, usually expands beyond their own immediate sentiments, thoughts and sensing.
As someone who recently experienced a Spiritual Awakening and have grown leaps and bounds I am grateful to finally be who my Creator intended me to be and so happy I found others like me. Ive been fortunate to find a soul sister living close by me, but its so wonderful to find so many more of us!
Oh well, I guess you'll have to google TYtalks 1 Yin Yang Snowman. Enjoy :))
The link didn't work...hopefully this time it will.
Here is a link to my presentations filmed in the Montana wilderness about developing a folk approach to healing and recovery. TYtalks ties together the wisdom of our ancestors with the evidence-based practices I utilize as a Dialectical Behavior Therapist and Cognitive Behavioral Therapist. I encourage you to watch the numbered talks in order. Peace! Ty
My three-dimensional body is weightless and extremely like a mobile new state of being.I'm feeling a little pain from a left heart catheterization procedure,where my physician chose to use the Angio-Seal Closure Device from St. Jude Medical.
The Angio-Seal Device made of three absorbable components a small anchor,collagen and a suture. A delivery system allowed my physician to guide the anchor into my artery through the hole created during the procedure. The anchor was drawn against the wall of my artery while the suture allowed the collagen to compact to create a secure seal over the entry point.
Anyway...I saw my body from all directions at once from in front,behind, and from the sides.I saw aspects to my features I had never known before adding a wholeness a completeness to my rear view mirror.
This may be why I didn't recognize myself at first after I saw a body lying on my bed. As I got closer to the body I was curious about who it was and immediately I descended toward it. There was nothing unnatural about the experience. I was above my bed hovering near the head board. My sense of freedom was limitless I felt a s-u-r-g-e of energy!It was almost as if I felt a release inside of me and my free spirit was suddenly drawn out through my chest and pulled upward as if by a giant magnet.So there is nothing to worry about being metaphorical because it' fascinating to have these kind of metaphorical dream like stated embracing of the light. The little pain I felt from the Angio-Seal device only moments ago now was no longer discomforting at all.My attention went back to my body where I had realized I was having an out of body experience and I felt an urgency to tell Beliefnet. The expression came to be that I sensed great spirituality,knowledge,and wisdom So,I'm passing my experience to another generation of 2012.This has been with me for "eternities"where I'm fully trying to understand.I had a difficult time comprehending the concept of eternity,let alone eternities.Eternity to me had always been in the future but this experience had been with me for eternities. As these scenes unfolded in my mind and I saw images in the back of my mind of a time long ago of an existence before my life right here on earth of my relationship with these out of body experiences,I got excited to know the fact of a pre-earth life sealed in my mind a "rebirth" into a greater life of understanding and knowledge that stretched forward and backward through time....
The concept of being one with all living things is simple yet profound. Honestly, I never gave it a thought until I was at my lowest point, feeling nothing, with nothing to give. It was at that moment I was embraced. I didn't get it at first, but over the years I grew and understood. I've written about the experience through fictional character Mary Corrigan in part II of my novel Reading To Jane. Don't know if I've given the beauty of the connection justice, but I sure tried.
Was Jesus an "awakened" individual?
One of the great mysteries of the New Testament is what was Jesus doing during the majority of his life that we know nothing about. Leaving aside the story of his birth, the only information we have about the younger years of Jesus comes from the Gospel of Luke who describes an occasion when a precocious twelve-year-old Jesus speaks in the temple, impressing his elders. The Bible is then silent about the following twenty year period of Jesus’ life until he reappears on the scene around the age of thirty when he is baptized by John and begins his ministry.
What happened during these missing years of Jesus’ life? What experiences might have shaped Jesus into the man he became? Why do we find so many parallels between the teachings of Hinduism and Buddhism and the teachings of Jesus, who was considered a subversive in his Roman and Jewish community? Why do the contemplative practices of Jesus, which seem to confuse his disciples, seem so similar to Eastern meditative techniques? Could a clue to these missing years come from a controversial discovery over a century ago by a Russian journalist?
In my new novel, THE BREATH OF GOD, I example the implications of this journalist’s historical discovery through a fictional story of suspense, mystery, and mysticism.
