When I was 11 I had a strange accident that catapulted my consciousness out of my body.
All at once I was surrounded with the deepest love imaginable – I saw everyone, heard it all – the panicked shouting and the business that was going on – but all was well.
Everything and everyone was exactly as it was supposed to be. All the external noise was stripped and what stayed was a vast space of love, acceptance, stillness and a meaningful intelligence were I could see the connection and worthiness of every individual person, flower, bird and drop of water in the river I looked upon.
