I began studying under a Buddhist monk and meditating more earnestly.
During one particular meditation I envisioned the body dying and experienced a "crown opening" where the top of my head experienced an opening to the above.
An infinite field of blackness, stars and intelligence surged inwards and downwards then upwards and outwards...
It was clear right away I was not the mind, the body or the identity.
I took a vow to truly awaken and teach others.
I walked to a lone tree near my house, sat down underneath it and offered a prayer to every God, deity and the Universe to awaken and teach others the truth.
A short time later I had a mind-blowing "everything is one" experience during an innocent trip to the swimming pool with my daughter.
Everything took on the same appearance, everything comprised of the same indivisible quality, everything was energy and of the same intrinsic value.
Every perceivable object now presented itself with a loving, knowing glow and warm friendliness.
All suffering faded away and a warm, loving and ever-present peace and “okayness” has replaced it.
The illusion had been seen through.
Many people embark on this journey towards awakening but get lost along the way.
This is your invitation - I can help guide you to awakening, a new life and a new you...
