One evening many years ago I witnessed my friend Dave experience an event that would change his life forever. From this day on his perception of who he thought he was would never be the same again.
He was sitting in his room eating a pizza and watching television. When out of nowhere he began experiencing a sudden shift in his consciousness that originated deep within his being. It was as though he was tapping an energy source that was at his core and was very powerful. It began slowly rising throughout his body. There were waves of joy and and sorrow coming from his heart overwhelming him. He felt like he was being "power washed" from deep inside. Shimmering colors of white light were dancing around him. His mind was overflowing with powerful memories from early childhood. Everything was coming to the surface. He no longer had any control of his emotions. He thought he was losing his mind. He cried out to me as I gently held and comforted him. I told him everything would be fine and that he would ultimately become a spirtual warrior.
The next day my friend Dave didn't know who he was anymore. It was as though he was in a different body on a distant planet. All of his senses were greatly enhanced. He could hear with a new clarity. His vision was sharpened. The natural colors of nature brilliantly presented themselves to him. It was as though he had been sleepwalking and had awoken to his higher Self. He felt truly alive and was so grateful for his life. There was this feeling of oneness that he had never experienced before. He felt love for everyone.
Dave stayed in silence for several days as he contemplated his new surroundings. He began re-evaluating his life looking at everything with a new focus and understanding. We took walks together for many hours and discussed his experiences and the nature of Consciousness and Spirit. I got to know him very well during this time.
