Real Spiritual Experiences

Weightless, Breathless, Mindless At The Ganges River


Sometimes we see something which we never experience before and that moment shock us. We tell spicy stories to friends, try to share or spread knowledge in others. But, what if you face something which you can't share, tell or discuss? What do we do than?

I am sure about readers would understand what I am going to say, nevertheless keeping within me would not do any good too.

So thought to try once...

I was at Dashashwamedh Ghat in Varanasi (arguably the oldest city in the world) the city of Lord shiva. It was a peaceful maroon evening, everything seemed blood red except him. A giant man with feather white dhoti and gamcha on his shoulders performing evening prayers to river Ganges. He was lost deep into his shlokas and murmurings as he was talking to the all mighty. I somehow connected with him and lost my senses when he opened his eyes and absorbed me into him. I felt weightless breathless, mindless.

There was an ever ending way in front, I was moving with a swift of say 200 km per/hour. Everything became senseless, there was me and peace nothing else. And this man was just in front of me I could see him but only with my eyes. All of a sudden a micro second I looked at mother Ganges, turned back and there was no one there.

I never got the answer what happened that evening?

Who was that man?

What was his purpose?

Was I tired?

Was that just a mental stage I went through?

Or do we attain something extra when we reach some places, people and stages?

The spiritual world is even more real than our physical world. Everything physical around us is decaying slowly. The animals, all beings live here just in a transitory way. Even the buildings will not last for ever and of course erosion of the land masses continues even if ever so slowly. But not so the spiritual world. This world exists outside of time and sometimes we are privileged to get just a small glimpse of it. That is what happened to you. The spiritual world is divided into good and evil and one has to make sure that one experiences and is positively influenced by the good and not the evil. In my almost 70 years of life I have found that Jesus and everything connected with Him is the only sure way of finding good. He said of Himself, that He was the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE. I have found that to be true and maybe your experience will encourage you to check out Christianity, especially the mystical form of Christianity to be found in the Roman Catholic Church built by Jesus on first Peter and now the 266th Peter in the form of Pope Benedict the 16th. I look forward to hearing your comments and God bless you with lots more spiritual experiences. I lived in India for nearly 15 years of my life and am in love with this wonderful country of extraordinary contrasts.
