It has been like that since I returned on New Year’s Eve from the Journey Into the Divine course at Oneness University (OU). The course was beautiful, simple, powerful. It took me a step further into the mystery of God. Underscore “mystery.” I’ll share more about that later. I love going to India because I always come back a little lighter, relaxed, more open, excited and grateful for this experience we call life.
I experienced another mystery during my third year at OU. The mystery of the night skies. One night one of my roommates and I decided to go out at night, chant, and call the names of deities to see what would happen. In the photos above, my night sky-watching friend Rifa called to Lakshmi and the red orb appeared. I called to Jesus and the light blue orbs appeared. I'm sharing the Oneness Blessing with another roommate in one of the scenes. We chanted the Moola Mantra - you can hear it elsewhere on this site - and the firmament lit up with orbs. What I discovered is that when we are joyful, the beings all around us respond. They love joy and happiness. The joy was at an all-time high on the birth date of the Golden Age - December 21, 2012. You can see the phenomenal procession of beings in the sky in the last photo.
A few days before, there was a star that seemed like it was trying to get my attention, so I laid on the ground and pointed my camera at it. Rifa was with me. You can see what we experienced in the video below. These were NOT the most important discoveries, but they were phenomena that bent my mind, just a little bit. That little bit of bending was equivalent to a foot in the door to other possibilities, outside of the realm of how I have been taught to see and experience the world. That's it - "more open" is reason #3.
