Great quote from Nanci D! It's similar to the definition of sahaja samadhi in traditional vedanta. As is your experience Andy. I resonate with it a lot.
runstrails, just to clear things up (and not that it really matters), but that quote you mentioned is actually from me, not Nanci Denison. The way Andy inserted it juxtaposed with her name gave the impression it was from her. I am both amused and flummoxed by this mixup since Andy is usually pretty clear about what he submits. If I don't highlight this variation of the 'telephone game' I have to wonder what will become of me...Somehow I've got to keep my ego happy by straightening out this little slip-up.

That is funny Kiki! Thanks for clarifying. It's a great quote no matter from whence it comes :D.

I can't recall the exact details, but years ago I was on a website (don't remember which one or even what the topic was) and read a post that seemed very familiar. It turned out it was something I said years earlier. Apparently, it was good enough that someone thought they'd appropriate it for themselves and it got a lot of thumbs up from readers. I felt both honored and stung by the outright plagiarism.

Sorry for the confusion....I needed a set of asterisks or something...

Nanci actually doesn't talk too much about awakening...she thinks she "merged with Source for a while" (that's a paraphrase)...mostly she talks about the discarnate soul bumping around in what some refer to as the "lower astral plane" - merging with other souls, etc. She does emphasize, though, that the big message is unconditional love.
