A funny thing happened to me after I got out of university. I had been a really good student, so I kept my nose to the grindstone like I had always been taught. I lost my sanity.
This was many years ago. Maybe you know what I’m talking about.
The year was 1975. So I left my job, got out my backpack and spent the next year on the road. I hitchhiked (mostly) from Vancouver, in Canada, to South America to find myself. My intention was to end up in Bolivia. I only made it as far as the border of Peru and Ecuador and then found out I had hepatitis. Something I had eaten I was told. I turned around and flew home to Canada ASAP and spent the next two months in bed.
What I did gain was an ability to FEEL. I stopped living inside my brain. I gradually stopped analyzing and calculating everything and started to regain my sense of wonder and appreciation that was normal for me as a kid.
Something else happened to me. Much later, I also started to find out I had a sensitivity of touch that others didn’t seem to have. At least it appeared that way. I began to teach others to extend their ability to feel using a method which I later called Sacred Touch.
There is a catch. You can ONLY have that type of ability if you can get out of your head. The whole thing is an ongoing process.
So in some parts of this blog I have attempted to share with you some food for thought, exercises, meditations and lifestyle changes to develop our innate ability to feel and be human BEings. Sounds interesting? It really is quite a journey.
I gratefully accept your comments and feedback.
