Everyone has experienced what he would call a sense of being transported beyond himself. It is a sense of actual escape from limitations. “Transportation” entails a sudden unawareness of the body and a joining of yourself and something else in which your mind enlarges to encompass it. It becomes a part of you as you unite with it. And both become whole as neither is perceived as separate.
What really happens is that you have given up the illusion of a limited awareness and lost your fear of union. The love that instantly replaces it extends to what has freed you and unites with it. And while this lasts, you are not uncertain of your identity and would not limit it. You have escaped from fear to peace, asking no questions of reality but merely accepting it. You have accepted this instead of the body and have let yourself be one with something beyond it simply by not letting your mind be limited by it.
This can occur regardless of the physical distance which seems to be between you and what you join. Time is not relevant; it can occur with something past present, or anticipated. You joined it without reservation because you love it and would be with it. And so you rush to meet it, letting your limits melt away, suspending all the “laws” your body obeys and gently setting them aside.
There is no violence at all in this escape. In these instants of release from physical restrictions, you experience peace and joy, the lack of awareness of the body, and the questioning whether or not all this is possible.
It is possible because you want it. The sudden expansion of the self which takes place with your desire for it is the irresistible appeal the holy instant (awakening) holds. It calls to you to be yourself within its safe embrace. Come to this place of refuge where you can be yourself in peace.
