I had been talking with a good friend in my apartment for some time. He eventually left and I decided to walk a few blocks down my street to a convenience store. It was a nice sunny day on a tree lined street with older houses.

Shortly after beginning my walk, I noticed that I felt exceptionally good, almost “high”—so much so that I wondered if I’d been smoking marijuana… No, I hadn’t. Then I just kept walking observing and monitoring how I was feeling. It was incredible! I felt so light and relaxed and well—like I hadn’t a trouble in the world and actually it felt like there were no troubles anywhere. Everything seemed perfect and fine, just as it was supposed to be. I felt such intense joy!!

Words don’t do justice to the depth and intensity of my feelings and observations. I saw a woman walking in my direction on the other side of the street. I didn’t know her and had never even seen her before, but I glanced at her and felt such an incredibly deep love for her. One might say that I felt ecstasy and didn’t want this spiritual experience to end.

Instead of going to the store, I made a turn and walked to a small neighborhood park. There I sat under a large tree just taking in the whole experience—still feeling such joy and love and heightened energy. I was trying to understand what was happening with me. I knew it was something good and desirable.

Besides the intense feelings, I also had a sense that the physical things I saw right before my eyes were just one layer so to speak—that there were other, deeper levels or realms of reality behind them. I had the sense, too, that everything in the world was fine, that there was nothing to worry about, and everything was as it was meant to be.
