For example, there was the morning not so very long ago when I woke up to find the three gold bands that never leave my wrist, piled one on top of the other on the floor beside my bed. Now one could say I must have woken in the night and taken them off. Perfectly reasonable suggestion, except to say that they are so tight, I would have yelped with the pain, and surely remembered such an eye watering experience. Secondly, I never take them off - not ever, not under any circumstances. There is no need you see, they are made of gold and go with everything, they are simple bands and do not catch on my clothes, and they will not dissolve in my bath water. So as you can see, when I awoke to find them there on the floor, I had, and have, no logical explanation... and that is interesting. Having watched Professor Brian Cox give a lecture about the way in which things can move without actually physically being moved (in the quantum world that is - Schrodinger's cat et al), I now am left with the thought at the back of my mind, that something of that order must have taken place.
Then there was the occasion of the sparrow in the hedge. This I think relates to what is known as a 'peak experience'. Standing on the garden wall, watching the sun set into a glorious baby blue sky; pink, purple and peach clouds gently moving in the warm spring air; birds (sparrows) twittering in the hedge behind me... it was a blissful moment. All at once I found myself IN the hedge, surrounded by the twigs, my arms fluttering with feather covered wings, and in my throat the song of the little sparrows. Through the twigs in the hedge I saw the very same sunset. It was a perfect moment. There was a feeling of complete connection with everything - and everything made sense. Of course my egoic mind couldn't stand that - and almost instantaneously got me out of the hedge and back on the wall - completely featherless. It was, and still is, one of my life changing moments.
On another blissful day, I found myself completely connected to the most beautiful, fragrant flower in the gardens at Bodnant in North Wales. I KNEW that flower - it WAS me. As I approached it, I completely merged with it, so that I felt its sweetness and gentleness and purity - it is so hard to describe these events. I think you have to feel them yourself to really know. As always, not everything can be taught or truly understood through somebody elses experience of Life. Life is for us to come to know for ourselves. Once again, we have to come to know our own Truth, in our own Way.
