I didn’t just become unemployed. I became purposeless.
This new suit of light, rather than a suit of armor, is wonderful to experience. Peacefulness is like a garden in which flowers like love, unity, gentleness, joy and grace bloom. Nothing much blooms in a garden that warriors have churned up and turned to mud.
The highlight of the process was an experience that felt like an inversion of consciousness. I began by pulling my senses and attention away from the world and into me as a tortoise withdraws its flippers and head into its shell.
I went deeper and deeper inside myself until I felt an inversion of consciousness. It was as if I did a back flip, simultaneously turning myself inside out in the process.
Now what was outside was inside and what was inside was outside. The General was gone and the Monk was now here.
Other changes? My love is flowing more freely again. Not sure how long this will last given how complicated life is becoming. But I welcome it and learn as much as I can from it while the space lasts.
One thing I see is that, in this space of peacefulness, I can wrap my love around my loneliness and my loneliness disappears. (1)
Peacefulness unto itself does not dispel loneliness. But it allows the transformative love to flow that does dispel it.
Peace is an enabling space. Love is its active agent. Or so it seems.
I’m thrilled. Thank you, Nora. Of course I’d like to give you her contact details. I’d like the whole world to go through the same process but there is only one Nora. Not enough to go around, unless more people take up practices such as these.”
