      A well-made video.

      I’ve only ever experienced a mystical consciousness on one occasion, after meditating. It was profound.

        Wow. What was it like? Can you describe it?

          I was meditating at about 9 – 10 pm. I felt an urge to go outside into the backyard, so I did.

          I laid down on my back, looking up into the night sky.

          My mind slowly but surely started opening up, accelerating in speed, until *boom*, I felt like I was “one” with the whole universe. I felt connected to everything; emotionally, spiritually.

          The Milky Way was glowing amazingly, it was how you see the Milky Way when you’re out in the country on a clear night, but I was in the suburbs of a city. It felt like there was little distance between me and the Milky Way; like there was a bridge connecting us both.

          The feeling was of profound connection to something amazing. It was like a 20x more powerful feeling than everyday reality.

          I heard what sounded like the most startling wolf growl I’ve ever heard, but when things died down, I realized it was the next-door neighbour’s dog’s noise being amplified.

          I’ve not been able to meditate very well since, and have never experienced the same thing again, but I will never forget it.

            I’ve tried meditating, and it was peaceful, but nothing happened like that!

            Something to aim for, Blossum!
