This well written account will pull you right into Terry's experience. He says, "I was totally one with the water, the earth, the sky, with all that is. I saw a couple of hikers in the distance and just wanted to run over to them and hug them, feeling like a little puppy totally in love with life."
15 years ago I was standing by the side of a small tarn in a very remote part of the Lake District in the UK feeling very small and insignificant and actually shaking with fear. I was about to undertake a journey way outside of my comfort zone and was feeling incredibly afraid at the prospect. I vividly recall closing my eyes as I stood by the side of the water and feeling the fear as my whole body was shaking from head to toe. I totally surrendered into the moment and silently asked, "Please God, may I feel Your Peace".
Instantly the shaking stopped and as I opened my eyes I felt total Oneness with everything around me.....the same landscape wherein just a moment ago I felt so small and lost within I now felt a part OF and not from. I felt like I could have walked across the water as i was the water.....the clouds looked fluffy and everything was in technicolour like I imagine it be like on an LSD trip.
I was totally one with the water, the earth, the sky, with all that is. I saw a couple of hikers in the distance and just wanted to run over to them and hug them, feeling like a little puppy totally in love with life.
These feelings stayed with me for a few days and I went on later that month to undergo the challenge that had been so scaring me ( a charity trek around a remote region of the Himalayas ) and to really enjoy the experience.
I guess i got a sense of another reality, that indeed if I can totally let go and surrender into the moment and experience myself as the Love that I am, then indeed i come to know what the mystics have said , that indeed All is Well and All Will Be Well !
