I was doing advanced meditation techniques through the Transcendental Meditation Program. I experienced an explosion of energy that lifted my body up into the air. I temporarily lost awareness, but when I regained awareness the world was full of light, everything was translucent and alive. Everything was connection. I could see light energy from everyone who I was around. I felt empty and full at the same time. My capacity for empathy was acute. I felt a flow of love.
I realized that being gay was entirely normal and that queer people are here for a reason.
