Default Fork Dropping Moments

This is a precious age in which we live. Be under no illusion, it is very special.

I caught up with an old friend over the Easter break that I haven’t seen in a very long time. Over lunch we chatted about old times and everything in between. As it turns out, he too has been on a personal pilgrimage in recent years.

He recalled the moment that as he described it, “his dualistic worldview collapsed”. He described his perspectives and how in an instant it changed. His story for me was one of those “fork dropping” moments, so I thought I would share it with you.

His worldview like many of us along this path was one of separation. He felt that Gary was over here and the universe is up there – something he looked at up in the sky. Or there is the earth and here is Gary walking on it.

But a moment arrived where his view changed in an instant. It was nothing substantial like the loss of a loved one or Angels descending from Heaven or the like. It was a gentle moment of realization as he sat in silence one morning.

His first reaction was disbelief at his previous mindset. It was like “Oh my goodness, what cosmos have I been inhabiting? Who did I think I was? If I am not this, if I am not the presence of the universe in this human form, then who do I think I am – this little bag of skin and bones?” He described this as his personal experience of enlightenment.

But it was also his description of enlightenment… where he realized he was the presence of the universe after 13.7 billion years – and that we all were that.

And if that was not enough of a realization, his key vocational question for his life emerged… “What is the future that needs me in order to emerge?”

It was great to see him after all these years. What a privilege this is.

When doctrine falls away sometimes instantly, sometimes gradually, the real truth is revealed.


Thanks Olmate
