Something happened within me that seemed and felt very different, suddenly the world stopped being a dark and ugly place to be in and life stopped “being a b$@ch.” It was a rapid transition that was triggered by difficult experiences. This is where I adopted and learned that even some darkness had a purpose.
Without it, I wouldn’t have started on a path to a higher form of thinking, some describe it as “raising your consciousness” and beginning to exist from within the heart. The next quote illustrates it beautifully.
Ironically, I stumbled on it synchronistically as I thought about something deep and meaningful to share this particular day and time…
“According to Vedanta, there are only two symptoms of enlightenment, just two indications that a transformation is taking place within you toward a higher consciousness. The first symptom is that you stop worrying.
Things don’t bother you anymore. You become light-hearted and full of joy. The second symptom is that you encounter more and more meaningful coincidences in your life, more and more synchronicities. And this accelerates to the point where you actually experience the miraculous. ” -Deepak Chopra
