World Shattering Truth - For Me
I get how religions are started. I have had many world-altering, world-shattering experiences in the past couple of years. They have all been profound. Some of them, the movement I’ve felt over and/or within me has been HUGE. But these have all been my experience. They affect no one else.
I find I am not what I thought I was. I have taught this all along and I’ve found it is true! I find what is true for me is true for everyone, but they can’t see it, as much as I might tell them. I find myself in a new world and everyone’s here with me, but they don’t know it.
But the shifts I’ve experienced were profound and large because of how insignificant and small were what they shattered. A thought system of puniness fell away and my mind, which had adapted itself to littleness, has all sorts of structures in place that must come down to accept its reality, which is far more than the puniness I had accepted as reality. All the drama, though, has to do with this mind and not with What has come. That is, after all, simply corrected consciousness. How could that, in itself, be greatly significant? It is the way it is supposed to be.
But I can see how some who have had like experiences feel it is something that has happened to the world as well as themselves. It has happened to their world. But, alas, it cannot be shared. All that can be shared is that it is possible to have these experiences. We all seem alone in our spiritual awakening—but we are alone together.
You may think that realizing, after all the drama, that such deeply profound experiences are due only to my limitations and not because Something Great has arrived would be disappointing. But it is not, because it is a correcting re-orientation. Truth is true, so It should be ordinary. Oh, yes, it’s a radically different view here, but only from the other side is that significant. Here, it is what the view is. The dramatic shifting is, while fascinating, rather exhausting. Settling into the new view is not.
