In Ubud, Bali – I had a rest sleeping in a yoga centre near the centre of Ubud. The yoga centre was built around a temple. After I woke I began meditating, just sitting quietly on my bed, in meditation… suddenly my breathing changed and became deeper and intense and very clean… and deep – and with it a vision of gold coins and the noise of coins dropping. They fell and kept falling into my lap like a waterfall of gold coins.
I felt fire, was warm, hot and full of light and couldn’t stop laughing (an inner laugh, a silent laugh full of love and devotion) – a sort of full body orgasmic experience of heart-opening love and light and relief, as though the meaning of the universe had fallen upon me… and there was nothing left to do… I don’t know how to describe it other than a spiritual jackpot… it went on for ages… it felt like an hour, but it was probably about half an hour.
I was elevated and felt light and yet very, very grounded…. it was a beautiful vision and audible sound of an inner waterfall of gold coins and laughter…
