SO WHAT WAS THAT?

4055991_f520

That essence of spiritual experience that I had to file and put away for awhile because of my difficulty in explaining. And do I even have to?

I found myself smothered with typical jargon.. New Age, Polytheism, Humanism, Monotheism…I could go on and on.

It’s difficult to find someone who shares your views, who can relate. People have different perspectives.

I read something recently that has pushed me to pick up my pen and write about it. Well, that’s just what writers do! It was an article on the essence of  mystery and life and the most important components of any spiritual experience.

1.) The experience itself.

2.) What do you think about the experience.

3.) And do we tell others about the experience.

I would say my connection was a very deep experience with the Spirit of God but translating it into conversation is impossible for me.

It has left me deeply touched and with a realization of just how insignificant I am in the face of God.  I’ve decided that perhaps my faith was faltering and it needed to be fortified. It has given me faith and courage that I’m on the right path.

It’s something that can happen to anyone and usually occurs during times of strong emotions and another element is that feeling of connectedness.  It left me feeling that I had lived my life one way for too long and now I could proceed forward a completely different person.
