biology lecture today.
    #1976880 - 10/03/03 05:42 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

today the professor was talking about the antiquity and origins of life. he got off on this quasi-tangent about the size of the universe and the age of it and of life, and this and that...

and this trip-like insight started to manifest itself... the old peeling away of the ego. it wasn't an altered state of consciousness, it wasn't a moment of exceptional clarity, awareness, or anything else... just insight and Oneness... it brought tears to my eyes.

i looked around the lecture hall to see my comrades dozing, daydreaming, looking bored as hell, pissed off, generally self-absorbed, like this was the last place in the world they wanted to be. and looking out, i just started laughing.

at 8:20 on a freezing cold morning in a dim lecture hall i was laughing uncontrollably with tears streaming down my cheeks. it was something... i'm glad i didn't cause too much of a stir.

has anyone else experienced anything like this?

The world is great...

If I should die this very moment
I wouldn't fear
For I've never known completeness
Like being here
Wrapped in the warmth of you
Loving every breath of you
