During meditation at times i see the most amazing images, its like everything is pouring out from inside me, in all directions, in a fractaline kinda way like that picture... the only sane way to describe it is like being at the centre of the galaxy

The less you hold onto the image, the greater & more expansive it becomes...its seriously cool

:grin:


:peace:

When i say i see it in meditation, its like a closed eye visual when tripping
Its not seeing an actual physical object outside of my body
Its like seeing the movement of the universe, inside my body

The same movement is inside your body & all bodies :wink:


:peace:

enlightenment doesnt look the same for every1.

ive experienced in once in the past. it was more of a journey for me that took up a length of days. my sensei had exeprienced it once and according to him he saw shiva and kali and had this story told to him by sum sort of messenger. when i was in japan, alot of the shinto followers i talked to, most of them were uzattai and described this certain kind of white light experience like how u all mention it above.

when i was in okinawa though alot of the same uzattai talked about various experiences, messages, prophetical like enlightenment. etc. its really different wherever u go.

Enlightenment looks pretty cool. I am a long way off since i'm still not really sure what it is. Is it even possible to truly understand what it is without experiencing it ?

Enlightenment is not when you have to think about it.

Enlightenment, put simply, is when you stop thinking (which inevitably handles with past and future.) and start being and doing and accepting or changing, all to do with the present moment. It is when you are 100% present. The here and now is all that matters and exists.

That sounds like how all animals except for Humans on a whole.
