I have been unusually happy and content

Hi Oshana

Just writing to say thank you very much for the opportunity to meet up with you, and to give you an update - or more likely my mind's analysis of what's been going on.

It was an unusual kind of experience for me, not sure what was going on most of the time when I met you -something was definitely expanding. Was that my awareness or my mind?

As I mentioned at the time, it felt like my head was going to burst, but a mental safety valve seemed to keep butting in and keep things under constant check. I found it difficult to step right into the experience without my mind constantly making me resist. However the desire and possibility of stepping in was very much there.

Calmness and beauty seemed to be around -- nothing mind-blowing-- it felt completely natural. None of the normal panic and anxiety I would have during London rush-hour. I was aware of you talking to me - about what, I can only remember bits and pieces. I felt like I was on auto-pilot.

I wasn't communicating well, if at all. It felt like, somehow -- somewhere in my head -- the awareness that you were gently but persistently inviting me over to the enlightened side of the pavement where you were walking. I could almost touch it but there seemed to be an invisible barrier blocking it. Colours were vivid: grey blue sky, silvery buildings with golden lights on, which I can still see now

5 days later. Mind stuff kept holding me back, anxiety about getting dark, catching trains was in the back of my mind stopping me from entering into the experience fully. As for the following few days, I ran the half marathon on Sunday and again my awareness seemed slightly above my body and mind for most of it.

I have been unusually happy and content. I have this new "awareness" toy to play with which I am trying to slip into on a regular basis. Am I just using this new toy as an excuse for opting out of whatever the current difficult interaction or mental problem is ?

My mind tries to analyse: I have been feeling happy - not high- just happy. Is this a result of our interaction. Is this just a result of running the half marathon ? Would I have been this happy anyway ? Am I just spending too much time in my head ? .. Bla bla bla????

However, I am more aware of something bigger -- infiltrating everything -- which seems to be related to the enlightened side of the pavement, mentioned above. I was always aware of it really; it just seems to be more in the foreground at the moment.

It was a pleasure to meet you, and thanks again for talking to me in a language I can understand and for helping me to expand my awareness in some strange way. I will let you know about any further developments.

Love Pat
