When did YOU have your last experience with unity?
I had it a few days ago, when I was swimming and dancing naked in the sea and in the magical nature of Greece… I was feeling myself as a part of the Creation and deeply connected with it. My intellect came to rest, and I only relentlessly enjoyed my existence….
