Have you ever just had a peaceful, wonderful feeling that you might think of as anticipation of something good coming your way? Maybe while driving to work. Then the feeling is destroyed as you try to think of a physical event, thing or person as the cause of this peaceful, wonderful anticipation. Like I know I am going to have a wonderful birthday party soon….. but my birthday is not soon.
Trying to hang on to the feeling after it is analyzed, is like trying to remember a dream without immediately writing it down.
Can the feeling of peaceful, wonderfulness that is perceived as anticipation, be a state of consciousness close to Divinity? Can you just bask in this feeling as if you would lie peacefully in the sun at the beach without a care? Why must we label, find cause?
If this feeling was just appreciated and thankfulness acknowledged for it, would it last longer? Could it become a state of being?
