I have been kicking around an idea today. To start a thread here to promote individual development by sharing personal experiences. I have much experience to choose from to start off such a thread as I am sure many of us here have our own powerful experiences.
I wanted to start the thread off with a topic that would not LIMIT the types of experiences that could be shared but, would perhaps serve to shine Light into any experience and promote understanding as to WHY we see is as powerful and worth sharing in the first place
The topic I thought of to keep in mind as the light to bring us understandings is- union. Unification or connectedness. Indeed, we humans are all connected in many ways, actions motivations and decisions are all connected and unified through our experiences in many ways.
An idea: union (or unification) has been a goal of many (perhaps all) spiritual practices throughout time. Union of the fringe motivations (desires) of the self with the greater self, lower self with the higher, heart and mind, self and nature as a whole, cosmic connectedness, etc...
