“To experience peace does not mean that your life is always blissful. It means that you are capable of tapping into a blissful state of mind amidst the normal chaos of a hectic life.” ~Jill Bolte Taylor
I’d just spent over six years trapped in my own worst nightmare. In a flash, my reality changed to an experience full of bliss and peace. As I walked through my hometown, it seemed like I was radiating unconditional love into all that was around me.
I didn’t know it then, but I’d just tasted the ultimate state of deep peace and presence that most people on the spiritual path long for.
You think that’s pretty cool? But before I give you the low-down on what happened, let’s rewind and put this into context with the rest of my life.
I was depressed, self-hatred and anxious for my first 18 years on this planet. After five more years of struggle and extreme stress, my body gave up on me and my life came to an abrupt halt.
In my twenties, I was still in my twenties. Because of severe pain and chronic fatigue syndrome, I was forced to rely upon state benefits and a group of carers. Not What I had in my mind.
So I switched from one doctor to another therapist.
