I Experienced the Oneness of Everything

As I was walking down an empty street in a light misty rain, and I had a voice in my head say, “words do not describe the world, they restrict it”.  At that moment I had a feeling of elation come over me.  I looked up at the clouds and trees and realized that I “know” them like the back of my hands, and I as I looked down at my hands, I realized I was all that.  I experienced the oneness of everything.  I saw beyond my words and meanings.  I knew in an instant that there is no death, only life.  That everything is the same thing.

I have no idea how long this lasted, but as I began to think about what was happening, the feeling left me. But the experience changed me forever.  I never looked at anything the same again.  I tried to explain this and was very unsuccessful for many years, so decided to write instead.  It left me with a constant quiet space in the back of my mind.  When I write, I go to that place and the writing always comes thru me.

I learned how to adapt this observing skill into understanding management/leadership/and the quality of making things.  I stopped telling people about this, and just used it to see things that others were blind to.  I retired from making money 17 years ago and now mostly continue to write. 

I have a blog called “wake up Tom Lane”. and I have 3 books that have had limited success.   Most people want answers, not a reflection on their own state of being and thinking.  And that is fine with me.  My last book is called “Perceptual Intelligence” or the intelligence of seeing process and system.
