I was sitting on my couch in my living room, alone. It was a tiny apartment I had rented in NJ, where I took my first job as a veterinarian. I think it was a weekend, when I could relax and do nothing in particular. I recall it was mid-day.
It came about suddenly, and lasted a fraction of a second. All at once , I had a deep feeling, a deep realization of perfect peace. A feeling that I knew everything in the world was perfect, exactly as it was that second. I remember the 2 words that flashed through my mind : “of course” . Like a realization of something so obvious, that was right before me, but somehow never before seen, known, or appreciated.
This feeling came upon me seemingly completely out of nowhere. It disappeared as quickly as it came – an instant.
I remember sitting up quickly ( I was lying on my back on the couch in the living room ) and thinking – “what just happened ?” I could not recreate that moment again, as desperate as I was to try to figure out how. But I have never forgotten that moment.
