Everything was love.

Age at time of experience:  29

My experience was the most formative of my life.  During a meditation class we were asked to set an intention.  Mine was to find peace of mind.  At this time in my life, I was working a hectic PR job, consumed with the material.  I had no idea I was miserable or unhappy.  Within two weeks, I had a very bad fall off my bike.  Right outside my house I fell.  I required emergency surgery, plates and pins to fix a smashed elbow.  I was instructed to take at least two months off work. 

During this time I self-reflected, read spiritual literature and continued to meditate.  I also visited family in France.  One afternoon on that holiday, just having read another chapter of Eckhart Tolle's A New Earth under the sun, I felt as though I was swept up into the eternity of everything.  It was as if I had downloaded all of the secrets of the universe.  I was the universe and everything including my individual self was formless, timeless, eternal.  It was pure light.  Everything was love.  I have no idea how long I was in this state for.  But it was as if I had downloaded all of the secrets of the whole world since before time began, and totally forgotten them when I became conscious of my individual self again. 

Very shortly after I came to, three eagles a few meters up circled around my head for a few moments.  Then, the sky swirled (it had been bright blue with the afternoon's summer sun) black.  There was just this powerful swirling.  I was in awe.  Not afraid as such, but overwhelmed.  Then some sort of light appeared within that.  I just had this sense of magnitude.  Of total awesomeness.  Of clarity in a sense, even though I had no idea what was happening.
