Mystical Experiencer: Female in mid-sixties
Current location: U.S.A.
Age at time of experience: 44
I experienced the ultimate experience of love, which is unconditional. That was the tremendous experience I received, which was so overwhelming because I felt I was not worthy of such love. Yet this unconditional love was given without any such preconception.
It seems it was in retrospect that [the experience] had happened spontaneously on my spontaneous forgiveness of my husband in a moment of compassion toward him after years of a built up anger and resentment.
My heart seemed to dissolve all the layers of defense against love built up over so long in a moment of complete understanding. [I saw] him as an innocent child, who he himself had acted toward me based on, [due to] his lack of unconditional love.
Ultimately: Unconditional love is the indivisible nature of self. That universal consciousness which may realize atonement by grace.
