Increasing Sense of the Eternal Nature of Consciousness

In the late afternoon today, in a moment of reflection and solitude, I traveled beyond time. In an illuminating instant, reality merged into the ocean of a timeless, vast spaciousness of pure being. I simply entered that stream of consciousness, of being, and I saw, no, I knew that I was and always had been. I was pulled up into that third heaven where the eternal Source allowed me to swim in the joy of being itself. And I knew right then that I had nothing to fear; I knew myself as eternal being, as a son of the Divine, without beginning or end, in union with God as unending life. There was no more striving, no more knowing or not knowing. All was light. All was love.
