Hijacked by an angel

I've really been "elsewhere" for the past week or so. I've made an effort to continue with the mundane (and not-so-mundane, like earning a living) details of my life, but a lot of things fell through the cracks. I think I'm back, but I'm also definitely changed. I just finished dancing wildly down the hallway to a fabulous Bill Miller song. Now that is just not something I'd usually do at 7:15 a.m., with not even one whole cuppa down the hatch yet!

Getting a taste of enlightenment gives me the motivation to continue living an ordinary life, but in a non-ordinary way. I'm not sure that will make sense, but can offer a Buddhist saying to help explain:

"Before enlightenment; chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment; chop wood, carry water."

(Picture a monk smiling inscrutably.)


Oh, I've been touched so lightly, so gently; and still the force of the contact knocked me clear out of my habitual orbit. Wow, wow, wow. It's heady stuff, the stuff of dreams; I'm transported beyond what I previously believed were my limits. The ability to access non-ordinary states of being while typing, for instance; the sending and receiving of amazingly powerful energy over distance--that kind of thing. Serendipity aside, this is f*cking awesome!

I am humbled beyond belief, and also feel magnified to new heights of expression.

Need I say more, except thank you?
