compassion, collaboration & cooperation iN transistion
Enlightenment is a metaphysical transition from small self to BIG SELF.
After I met my last teacher and this shift happened to me, suddenly I found
I was seeing myself from a completely different vantage point.
I no longer saw the world from within the prison of my small self.
Now I saw my small self from outside it. And this outside position included
the whole universe. To say I was amazed is an understatement. I was in a
state of awe and wonder at the spectacular turn of events, shift in
perspective, and profound self-transformation.
Now my sense of self was literally enormous.
And this enormity was inclusive. The once-tiresome and mundane melodrama
of my personal identity had broken wide open and suddenly felt like it was
the thrilling journey of the entire cosmos. My own life now felt like it was
one with all of life and my sense of self had transformed in such a way that
now I wanted to embrace or include as many others in this newfound
consciousness as I could.
I would express my thanks to Simon Reynolds
for drawing my attention to 'Arise' by Leo Plaw
