Real Spiritual Experiences

I Am You, You Are Me, We Are One

 

When I was 14 years old I had 3 questions: who AM I? Why I can not feel that God or a high power exists, what is LOVE? When I became 17 years old I started a diligent program of reading bible with deep thoughts, meditation, praying to God and servicing other people according to the things I was learning from bible as volunteer. I was also applying a system of self control exercises to have my self in order that was accelerating my ability to discipline to my spiritual work.

While I was in full time servicing God and people, I was slowly becoming more pure and faithful as I could see His help daily in many obvious for me ways. But one day after few miracles that I had seen in my daily occasions, and as I was preaching bible in a bus I became totally relaxed and in deep clarity and sanity and mental focus I for first time in my life felt alive in here and now, at this moment in universe. I had a perfect three dimensional view of everything. I was feeling a clear separation between me and the other objects. I was the clean pure observant and the other things were existing there around me and that was so impressive. I felt deep awe. I was feeling so perfect self control that I could move in a millisecond if someone was going to hit me like if I was practicing martial arts for decades.

When I came back at my home this was still there. I was observing in deep sanity the trees, my hands and the hair of my body were standing up as deep awe and appreciation were making me feeling so consciously for first time that I was existing, God exists, every one from animals to people I meet they are all me again and again in other forms. I was feeling that this might be the state of consciousness that Christ had when he was in earth. I was bending down to my knees in deep awe and worshiping with tears of appreciation the creator God. I was feeling deep love, faith and awe and this was obvious to other people as I was talking to them for God because I had great empathy and faith and I was not neurotic but One.

I noticed you live in greece. I am greek orthodox, and I talk a lot about saints, but I feel like a balloon full of hot air... I have many sins, which I confess to the priest. I met and talked with two holy greek orthodox monks, who are now saints! Elder paisios and elder porphyrios of greece. And I saw many miracles, and read many holy books, full of miracles of my religion. JESUS didn't say to us: go to university to learn about me, or practice complicated yoga, or talk to spirit guides! All we need to be saved, is read and practice the bible, and pray, fast, confess our sins, and have holy communion regularly! An old greek grandmother that never went to school, can go to heaven... But a university professor of theology might go to hell! It's not what you KNOW about God, but what you DO for God! And how much of your time, money and energy you GIVE to do his comandments... 'HE WHO HAS MY COMMANDMENTS AND DOES THEM, HE IS THE ONE THAT LOVES ME!' sais Jesus. And that could even be a paralised man who's been in his bed for 40 years! Also Jesus said: 'greater love hath no man, than he who gives his life for his brother!' (GOD IS LOVE). That means the soldier who died in battle, sacrificing his life so that we can live free. It can be the mother or father sacrificing their life and comfort to raise, feed and educate their kids. It can be the girl who never married, just to stay at home to look after a chronically ill or aging family member. It could be the monk, nun or priest who sacrifice long hours in prayer and fasting for others, or confessing them... There are so many unsung heros out there, who we think are ordinary, or even anti social people, who will one day shine in the kingdom of God! You can never even suspect how spiritually gifted these people are: the street cleaner, the toilet cleaner, the bent over grandma or grandpa... They SHINE in God's eyes! Even though they never did yoga, or meditation, or have 'spirit guides'! Why do we have to make our path to heaven so complicated! Jesus said: 'Love the Lord your God with all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength, and your neibour like you love yourself'. That's ALL that you need to be saved! Amen.

About the title of my experience I have to make this comment... I do not mean that we all are ONE Now... Because it is obvious that we are FULL OF CONFLICTS. This only describes my feelings at that time about the union I have felt between me and God and his son and all of the others who participate in this relation. I know that this relation is controversial for many as the universal SELF is still in conflicts about what is good and what is bad and who has the authority to define it and to govern... So for the future I would say: I am you, you are me, we will be ONE. ONE means many with same will and purpose and the awareness of THAT we ARE all in all-the awareness that I am you- a deep unselfish love and the same clean truth and objective system of believes about what is good and bad and who has to the authority to define it and govern. THIS IS THE LIBERTY FROM PAIN and the glorious freedom of the kids of God nikosathinamar [at] gmail.com

my experiance with more details... When I was 14 years old I had questions: who am I?, why I can not feel that God or a high power exists, what is LOVE?
When I became 17 years old I started a diligent programme of reading holy scriptures with deep thoughts meditation, praying to God and servicing other people according to the things I was learning as volunteer. I was also applying a system of self control exercises to have my self in order that was accelerating my ability to discipline to my spiritual work. I was making this not because I was feeling it but as a test to God if he would reveal him self to me and if he would answer my questions. It was acording to a verse that says "try -test- Me ". I did it in a good will spirit. - While I was in full time servicing God and people, I was slowly slowly becoming more pure and full of faith as I could see His help daily in many obvious for me ways. But one day after few miracles that I had seen in my daily occasions as I was servising in a bus I became totally relaxed and in deep clarity and sanity and mental focus I for first time in my life felt alive in here and now, at this moment in universe. I had a perfect 3 dimensional view of everything, I was feeling a clear separation between me and the other objects, I was the clean pure observant and the other things were existing there around me and that was so impressive. I felt deep AWE, I was feeling so perfect self control that I could move in a millisecond if someone was going to hit me, like if I was practising martial arts for decades... - When I came back at my home this was still there. I was observing in deep sanity the trees, my hands and the hair of my body were standing up as deep awe and appreciation were making me feeling so consciously for first time that:1) I was existing 2) God exists 3) every one from animals to people I meet they are all me again and again in other forms. I was not 2 in 1 -i mean I was no more neurotic-like I was feeling before- I was One,... A deep I am ness. I was feeling that this might be the state of consciousness that Christ had when he was in earth. I was bending down to my knees in deep awe and worshiping with tears of appreciation the creator God totally decided to use my self in servicing him and the other people who are my self in separate differentiated repetitions. I was feeling deep love unity and this was obvious to other people as I was talking to them for God because I had great empathy and faith and I was not neurotic but One. This kind of awakening spiritual experience continued less or more for about 5-6 years but as the exception of my daily state of consciousness and not as the rule of how I was feeling. Unfortunately this was not something I could have for ever even I was trying allot. I guess this happened because I had not the proper strong stayble infrastructure as personality to keep it. In an other point of view it could be something that God gave to me as a free sample of the Real life we are waiting in order to give me a strong motive to change and to inform me as well for the emotional, spiritual and mental defection that I had as I could not feel that there is high power even I had a lot of evidences that were persuading only my mind and not my heart too, and I could not feel less more in AWE my existance neither could feel love for others as I was in a neutral numb emotional state. Finally I totally lost it and I started reading world religions and philosophy, physics and psychology to understand why the other people could not understand my experience and if this was common to some more people, and why I could not get back to that high state of consciousness. I currently believe in holonic theory as it can be easy combined with Bible's concepts. In brief in order to have a perfect human we need 4 basic things,1:i must be responsible and diligent to my spiritual process to build the proper infrastructure that can emerge the higher consciousness 2: the other people must do same- my work is not independent of their progress- "system theory" 3: perfect, powerful and fair government-for me only God's kingdom- 4: perfect science as we need accurate knowledge to cure every sick entity into our societies and bodies-i believe that only God has this science as the creator and it is not wise to ignore such a great inventory of wisdom in univerce-This we can compare it with a table with four feet all important to keep balance. It is interesting also that in chaos and complexity theory there is a principle that says that: a complex system as increases its complexity there are more possibilities to fall in chaos with one exception:if the system is guided by a chaotic controller MORE COMPLICATED OF THE SYSTEM who can analyse the system and all the interactions in it and guide it in safety. I simple cannot find any more able for such an extended crucial responsibility -due to my subjective perspective- than the Creator Core self God. My duty now is to prove my responsibility in spiritual and self development as the part of my contribution to these 4 principles I have referred of holonic theory, and also to be moderate by not keeping self delusions as if I had omnipotent will -this is called megalomaniac will of addicts- and as the 12 steps pray say to stand things I CANNOT CHANGE YET. At least there is an inspiring future there waiting for us that worths our best efforts to get rid off the most obstacles that we can which resist to our self development and reach our higher consiousness

nioaba, I just want to point out that people have all the space they want when publishing a story here, or even comments, we don't have a limit. We do, however, have a minimum required. Maybe you misinterpreted it as a maximum?

Thank you for responding to the experience that I have posted... I give more informations about the nature of my experience and the thoughts that emerged by this awareness in my blog http://www.nioaba.blogspot.com
I had so litle space here to discribe exactly how I felt that time. Also I want to make clear that I was not preaching loud in a bus but I was talking with the people who were siting next to me. Also I did not feel one with God as if we were one person but as the quality of the divine personality emerged for a while in me... I became about that quality of conscious that I was reading in bible Christ had. Love is union by its self in a spiritualy way as I describe in my blog. With respect nio aba

You hit the point by doing right - you sincerely and courageously followed Christ up to the point of being thought crazy (what a crazy action it is to preach God in a bus!) and wham, He bestowed you a look through His eyes. Now from this time on your soul kneels, and will never stop kneeling, before Him who is in every atom of this transient material world, until you will be allowed to kneel at His feet in Heaven.

I now tell you and all here the story of Saint Notburga. She was a Count's cook, and being a sincere devotee of Jesus she imitated Him by giving the remnant food from her kitchen to the poor. The Countess supported that, and when she died blessed her. But then the Count took another wife and this one was haughty and cold at heart, and she forbade Notburga to feed the poor and ordered her to give the food to the pigs instead. Shuddering with disgust at this sinful idea Notburga instead gave the food to the other servants, and turned to fast herself and to give the main part of her own food to the poor. Soon after she was fired off her job by the Count, after having caught at giving food to the poor again. She had to walk off into the insecurity outside the castle for another job, and became maiden at a farm. The farmer forbade her at once to feed the poor. She said ok but allow me one hour of prayder at the near chapel every evening. He said ok for this would cost him no penny and so she did, until one day big harvest work was to be done and she was on the corn field to mow with all the others until the hour came when she was used to go to the chapel. She rose from her kneeling and mowing and wwent to her employer and asked him for finishing work and going to pray but he said no and accused her of just wishing to laze at expense of the farm. There she asked her deepes conscience whether this were true and her heart said no and then she got angry and did something really mad. She threw her sickle up into the air thinking "Jesus decide yourself shall I work now or pray?" and what happened? The sickle remained in the air beyond her reach as if hanging on a string and all the farm people and the farmer himself stood in awe, and of course she was allowed to go and pray.
But after end of harvest the farmer fired her for being a "half witch" and again she went out into the blue lonesome as Abraham. But - the Count came into her way on his horse, haggard and aged in face, and said oh my dear Notburga there you are! And at once called her back to be his cook again and his dear heart's friend; for he had had bad luck in war and his own brother had robbed his castle, and his evil new wife had died as a mad woman in the delusion to be herself a pig having to eat junk from the floor, and was said to haunt now at night as a lost soul the castle's pighouse, weeping and moaning about her sins, and the Count himself had fully repented during this bad time, and recognized how far off light haughtiness and warlikeness one can bring and how much better charity and respect for God is, and thus he did what old maiden Notburga told him to bring it all into order again by making peace with his brother and saying sorry for having been in war against him. Soon after Notburga went off to Heaven, and since that time all servant people in the world are invited by the Church to pray to her so they learn Karma Yoga and earn its sweet fruit of silent power stronger than Evil.

God bless you all through the example of Saint Notburga, as He did to my Franciscan nun grand aunt who was like a cell in her body!

Thank you for being the "light" and showing everyone what a magnificent person you are.

The hardest reality to grasp is the "feeling of oneness with everything" it is not possible, we are taught from an early age, that man is not worthy enough to be "at one" with the Divine.

Yet it is a revelation within our souls when we awaken and realize WE ARE AT ONE WITH EVERYTHING! Some will never grasp the concept and choose not to believe, however as you have experienced it is an amazing feeling that personally I hope will never disappear, it just feels too wonderful to give up or think that it will disappear (our human minds taking over with defensive thoughts).

Once again thank you for publishing this wonderful story and may the Divine Light that you are bathing-in continue to shine brightly and eminate from within you always

James
