I glad to find this web site and share my experience. I was around 5 years old, to let you know a little about me, I have never thought as others do.
On that day I was playing outside, I looked up into the sky and asked why am I here? At that moment it was like a weight released off of my chest and a veil was uncovered and a great oneness was all there was, what I am about to say may sound odd to most, but I was all knowledge, everything was known, no mysteries and a feeling of surprise came over me, kind of like, "surprise Scott life is just a joke. just for fun. nothing to worry about. just enjoy it".
I was in a state of no time, I do not no how long I was standing there, afterwards weight or tension came back like a tank was laid on the chest and it was like a giant curtain was closed on a stage. I ran inside to tell my mom, the only way I could express it at the time was "mom, mom I was just really happy" all she could say was that was nice.
After this, between 5 to 13 I would have experiences of time speeding up or at least sounds would go 100 miles an hour. After nothing more than interest in Jewish mysticism in my early 20's, the next chapter happened about three years ago, I was laying in bed before I got up for work and a voice called my name in a foreign accent, it only appeared in my ear facing the pillow. It was so loud it brought me out of bed (note I do not do drugs or alcohol), after this over a few weeks time a need to study all religions overcomes me, since then I have studied all religions, all great spiritual text known and obscure, now a greater understanding (intellectually or within this mind) that all religions point to the same truth (all is one) and now it is hard to say (I) knowing it is not real.
Thanks to everyone for reading
