I promised myself a while back, if I ever got a taste of enlightenment, I'd try to describe what it feels like.
Because if you're on a path, I think it's helpful to know what you're aiming for.
And because despite everything, I didn't really find a good description anywhere, or at least anything that resembled what my experience was like in order to explain it.
So my question was, either those doing the talking are missing something, not sharing, or on a different trajectory.
Words like 'bliss', 'peace', 'rapture' and 'ecstasy' get flung around, but what does that actually mean? 'Ecstasy' is a word invented by people who don't experience a lot of it, and we just have to make do with inadequate vocabulary.
It's my belief that in the higher realms there are probably entire languages devoted to expressing the many flavours, tones, harmonics, subtleties and varieties of love experience.
I've been reminded recently how good it actually is.
peaceful, passionate, playful,
tender, physical, total, dissolving,
ecstatic, rapturous, prayerful,
blissful, kissful, ravishing, caressing,
extinguishing, re-birthing, romantic...
And much more (like I said - inadequacy of words)
It's not just about chasing inner peace.
And I reckon that's worth a bit of inner work and meditation...
confidence - freedom - passion
