I was at a conference that was training people to be speakers. The program was held near the beach, I believe it was South Padre Island. While I was there, we did a lot of cool exercises including using one’s imagination in “entering” the body of another person (that is a story unto itself).
Anyway while there, they showed a video on “If this was the first day or the last day of your life”. It was a concept that I began to play in my head. I woke up early the next morning and started walking along the beach as the sun started rising. It was a magical moment just being there at sunrise. As I thought about this being the first day or the last day of my life, everything around me began to shift and change. I felt a vibrancy inside me that was palatable. I became filled with awe. I began to dance and skip along the beach. I felt myself expanding. As I expanded, I became one with everything. I felt more alive and vibrant, as if a thousand fold. I felt intense and immense feelings of joy and ecstasy. I felt as if I could walk on water, even though I did not try it. The phrase “world without end” is echoing in my mind as I write this now. Everything felt infinite. Words are so inadequate in explaining the experience.
I thought once having reached such an experience that I would live the rest of my life in it. Alas, this has not been so. I even go months and years without thinking about it. And once I remember it, I think, how could I forget this. It was so magical. It gave meaning to existence.
