An Intense Concentration on God
One night in college, I decided to meditate on God. I went out to my Jeep Cherokee, folded down the back seats, and sat. I can't really tell you exactly what I meditated on; it wasn't the word "God," or anything, but just an intense one-pointedness on God, undefined. I guess the enthusiasm I had made it easy to concentrate because within a few minutes, warm light began moving from the outside of my closed eyes and met in the middle with a luminous, warm white light that filled my vision. The light dispersed and a plateau which summed up the fact that money, popularity, and one other thing I forgot didn't matter. As that was all sinking in a second plateau erupted out of that one, but it's surprised me so much that I lost concentration and thus didn't know the meaning of it. Anyhow, it was really, really cool at the time. Totally sober too ;-)
Gives me goose bumps just reading this.
Thanks a lot Dylan for sharing your wonderful meditative experience.. clearly unique. Reminds me of, 'the peace of God that surpasseth all understanding.' We need to keep exploring these wonderful, spiritual places.
