“When life flows through us in such a pure and powerful way, utterly beyond any preconception or idea that we may have, we have found our true life.”
At this point, we begin to sense that our experience, and thus our immediate life, is ultimately notabout us nor is it for us. We begin to sense that we are vessels or vehicles for something much larger—in fact, reality itself, in all its vastness—and that our lives are unfolding rather completely independently of our own personal sense of ‘self,’ with its various hopes and fears, its ambitions and agendas. We begin to realize, in other words, that our life is ultimately not a personal phenomena at all.
Ironically enough, the realization that our life is not a personal phenomena marks the birth of our true individuality…This realization, of course, can only occur when any self-conscious “I,” even any sense of ‘me’ being me, has ceased, if only for a moment. When it does occur, this realization is accompanied by a very powerful and life-changing awareness. Undeniably and astoundingly, we discover that, when life flows through us in such a pure and powerful way, utterly beyond any preconception or idea that we may have, we have found our true life.” ~from Touching Enlightenment With The Body byReggie Ray
