What I miss and long for in the spiritual experience is the overwhelming experience of love.
It’s not a love directed at one person or thing, but an overwhelming love of existence itself.
It was a sense that everything is absolutely perfect just the way it is.
I went to bed last night with the thought that everything is absolutely perfect just the way it is and experienced love in a dream.
It was not a love of existence itself, as occurs in waking state, but an overwhelming love for a cat that lived with me for 15 years. We were on the edge of a tall building and my love for her caused me to fear that she was too close to the edge and may fall.
I woke up this morning with the awareness that my life is consumed with the longing for the love of existence that the spiritual experience provides and the fear that my longing for this love would cause others to perceive me as a weak minded fool that longs for love.
I recently formulated the intention to occasionally experience, in the depth of my being that the world is absolutely perfect just the way it is, so be it.
