Field of Now

Post by Soul Seeker » Wed Feb 18, 2009 12:17 pm

Today while I was going about my normal and average day I experienced very briefly a deep sense that all was perfect and all was as it should be. It lasted only a few minutes and when I slipped out of it the feeling of how it was quickly left my memory. It was if I had gone to a different place, a zone or field of Now, of isness. The only thing I can say it was very nice to be there.
I wonder if people like Tolle and Adya experience this all or most of the time. Is this a glimpse of how being fully realized is experienced ?

I'm not sure I know what "fully realized" is. But that sense of un-attached beingness is the real deal and is what we truly are. It's here now, closer than our breath, just a simple shift in perspective away.

I am in the begiinging stages of awakening - as Tolle has put it, I have not "fully integrated" or as others have say "fully realized" my inner and outer purposes. I feel that what I had a glimpse of was complete harmony with the Now - with Presence and perhaps this is what Tolle and others who are fully integrated - fully awakened - experience all or if not most of the time.

to answer your questions...
1. i dont know, youd have to ask them.
2. i dont know, what may be "fully realized" to you may be different to me or others. (not that there is ultimately a difference, but you get the point)

here is a suggestion, one that is not easy for most to take. sit for what seems like an hour without looking at a clock, and expect nothing. give yourself that time to fear nothing, worry nothing, think nothing. plan for no interruption, prepare a room without distraction, maybe provide a candle or glass of water to focus on. label nothing, judge nothing, have nowhere to go and nothing to do. this hour is to exist only.

sounds out there i know, but what have you got to lose except an hour of your life? what might you gain?

just a thought from a very imperfect fellow awareness. :)
