Childhood moments of clarity
    #620927 - 04/28/02 02:47 AM (14 years, 7 months ago)

I remember having an experience when I was about 9 or 10.
I was in the playground at school during lunch, walking by myself. And suddenly it struck me that it was real. My thinking just completely stopped, possibly for the first time since i was a baby, and i just had an acute sense of "this is real." It scared the shit out of me. Many times later in life I would induce the state by repeating to myself "this is real, this is real, etc." until it sunk in and i got that feeling again. It always scared the shit out of me, and it never lasted long, but I was always curious about it and kept doing it occasionally. Since I began meditating, I access that feeling more readily (and without repeating "this is real"), and it is not so scary any more.
I was just wondering if anyone had any similar experiences (as a child), or if they have anything to say about it....

Peace.

your right it is real, the feeling is telling you take advantage of the situation, for your earthly exsistance is limited, you know this as well as i. it is saying stop fuckin around with society and become your own person, set your soul free. I rarelyhad this feeling cause mostly i have lived in the moment, i didn't give a shit about anyone else, or my parents cause i know we are all going to the same place, it is a matter of becoming who you really are, the free spirit, just give up your so called reality and run free as i.


--------------------
insanity with a plan, a plan to stop exercising truth as compared to breathing thin air, but to experience truth as all there is to experience, for what do i not already have that exsists? All i can do is enjoy the ride.

When I was younger I used to have orgasms spontaneously. Things like lending toys to friends, or playing tag would give me an intense feeling of great pleasure. I only ever got the exact same feeling during an oragasm later in my life.

Oh man, I know EXACTLY what you mean. I think it's an absolutely amazing feeling. You explained it nicely and reading your post just revived that feeling once again. Thank you man, I needed that :smile:
