Sometimes I wonder if born again Christians went through a similar line of transformation as Eckhart Tolle’s Awakening. By the way, does anyone else think that Eckhart looks a little weird? He’s kinda cute, like part of his face never matured… Anyway…. The dedication of born again Christians often borderlines on outright obsession. They found something. It was like they walked around aimlessly for their entire lives and then suddenly WACK!!! Clarity…
I ponder on this because I had an awakening. It slapped me in the face like a cold fish and since, life has never looked the same. This, in 99% of ways has been a positive experience. My eyes opened to… Reality! And now many of the things that have occurred over the past 5 to 25 years have all made sense.
I have always been a follower of western psychology, yet clashing it hard against the Eastern beliefs made everything… Polar 🙂 It brought me to the middle. A place of peace, contemplation, contentment, and rational thought. I understood friends that I had never clicked with before, and I distanced myself from friends that I realised were… well… lets just say they were not for me.
This ‘journey’ (if you will) not only delve me into my deepest woundings, though it also directed me to India. It put an immediate stop to my egoic obsession with musical performance and brought self-love to to an empty yearning that was within me.
